here is a web site with repair manuals online that you can use, for a small fee, to perform the belt replacement.

usually there will be a square hole on the tension pulley bracket. the hole is there for a 1/2 inch drive rachet or tork type bar. This will give you plenty of leverage to release tension when removing and installing the belt.
