Easy enough if you have the right tools and turn a wrench.

Serpentine belt to the water pump and alternator could be a DIY project. A timing belt is more advanced and should usually be left to a professional.

Thanks guys...enjoy the weekend.

gvgregory, are you afraid to do this? Do you normally work in a Tropical Fish store? these things can be a bit intimidating with their spring-loaded tensioners and fortunate to have a 1/2 breaker'll probably need one to change the belt...once you figure it out, it will go easy-
