changing the serpentine belt on a 6.0

Can anyone give me a clue as to how to change the serpentine belt on a 6.0? Does the belt go around the fan? I have a 2004 model.

I am not sure this will help but here are a couple of pics of the belt on The Granny Truck.






I hope this helps.

Grab the belt with one hand, on the section between the alternator and the grooved pulley on the belt tensioner as hard as you can, until the belt won't pull any further. There is a lock tab on the under side of the tensioner that you push to keep the tensioner in the released position (while you're holding the belt with your other hand). Remove the belt, and route the new belt in the same manner as illustrated in the photo above. Once installed, grab the belt with a slight yank, and release to reapply tension to the belt.

m-chan68, Related to this, on my '05 with 72K the belt looks new with no age cracks. Should this be a time in service change, and if so when? What do you recommend and what should we look for? Thanks for the good information you post here!

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Live and learn I guess.
