Replacing that belt is an easy task, relative to replacing the timing belt.
Put the car up on ramps,
get under the car,
remove the lower engine cover,
remove the right side splash shield,
use a 16mm box wrench on the tensioner,
push wrench towards the back of the car,
remove belt from AC compressor,
release belt tensioner slowly,
remove the belt,
install new one around all pulleys/rollers except AC compessor,
move wrench on tensioner towards back of car,
install belt on AC compessor,
move wrench on tensioner towards front of car,
remove wrench,
install splash shield,
install lower engine cover,
get out from under the car,
drive off ramps.

Be careful not to get your hand stuck between the wrench and the pully on the bottom... it hurts!
