Squeaky Belt (Serpintine Belt?)

I'm new to the diesel world.... I've had my 6.0L for about a month now and have developed a squeaky belt. I believe that it's the serpintine belt, and have done the search on how to replace the belt myself.

The local Ford dealership wants $340.00 cdn to replace the belt, which seems pretty steep if you ask me. So I'm giong to tackle the job myself with the help of my brother.

Just wanting to know, is there anything special about replacing the belt, I know that they have to be routed a certian way. Anything that anyone can offer up to make the job easier?

Thanks if advance for the help!!

PS... love the truck. If this is in the wrong forum, if possible please move to the correct one.

I just did this on my company's F-450, it took like 30 mins, and two ppl. One under truck and on above the motor. You do not have to go over fan. Included in this 30 mins, I changed the tensioner as the idler pulley on tensioner froze up and chucked belt off.
