Serpentine belts don't take very long to put on once you figure out the routing. There is usually a diagram of the routing path some where under the hood. You don't have to take off anything, however you may need a special wrench or 1/2" drive ratchet to push the tensioner out of the way while you slip it over the last pulley.
