This procedure is so simple, you can easily do it yourself. There is a tensioner and an idler pulley. Put a socket wrench drive handle into the tensioner, and get the tension off the belt. Remove the belt, and install the new one. Manipulating the tensioner, slip the new belt over the idler pulley. Done!
