it may not even be the belt, it may be a pully, but changing it is pretty stright forward. I have done it maybe about 5 times in the last few days, put a 1/2 ratchet in the ten pully and pop the belt off, then when the belt is free take the line for the coolant off pull the belt on and put the time back on, take of slowly because there is coolant in there and it will pour out.

while you are at the autoparts store, buy the hose for dual atls and you wont have to worry about that hose ever again

put a little dielectric grease on the belt, believe it or not it works great, a lot of times a brand new belt will squeel a little bit, just put a bit on 4-5 different spots on the belt front and back, if it still squeals, its probably a pulley, we do it at the dealer all of te time
