Use a socket wrench in there to release the tensioner and route the new belt over all the "walled" pulleys first & save the smooth wall less idler pulley for last, as it's easier to get enough tensioner slack, to slip the back side of the belt onto the smooth idler pulley last. While you have the belt off, check the tensioner & idler pulleys for play/wobble in their bearings, there shouldn't be any noticeable play & no noticeable roughness or untoward noise in their bearings when rotated. Then save your old belt & carry it in the trunk as a spare.
