You will need a sepentine belt tool w/ a large Torx socket T-55. To remove the sepentine belt first (lest than 10 minutes) Take a picture of the belt before removing it so you know how it goes back on.
Jack up the car and remove the front underbody cover. You use a towel to remove the A/C compressor belt while turning the crank/engine. One you remove the old A/C belt, put the new belt over the crank first, and then install it on the bottom of the A/C compressor and install the tool pictured on the A/C compressor pulley. Turn the crank clockwise keeping the belt tight and the tool will pop the belt on. I had to do it twice because the belt ribs did not line up the first time.
