how to change AC belt?

i've searched this site and googled it as well and have come up with zip so far. i've found a small write up on how to change the serpentine belt but not the AC belt. do any of you guys have a procedure on how to do this? any special tips and/or advice?

i cannot speak from personal experience since the mechanic at our shop actually did the work, but it wasn't too bad. he was able to get to everything necessary from the bottom. he removed one bolt along the bottom of the fan shroud, was able to pull the serpentine belt out of his way, removed the AC belt and slid the new one back on. the biggest challenge was getting the serpentine belt back in place. it was done in about 1.5 hours. the job was a success....NO MORE SQUEALLING!

the only thing special the mech wished he would have had was a longer ratchet for the tensioner pulley. other than that, don't believe you should need anything out of the ordinary.
