I would lookup a service manual for that model. Have you looked on You tube?

Remove the cover on the back. The awkward part, there’s no adjustments or tensioner. I removed the water pump pulley, removed old belt, put the new belt on, forced the pulley with the belt onto the water pump by hand, started the screws by hand, snugged with a cordless impact gun, torqued with a torque wrench. It wasn’t bad, but ours is on a slide and comes out very far.
