I really do need instructions on how to replace the serpentine belt on this. I would appreciate any help on this matter.

Find the tensioner pulley on the passenger side of the engine. It will be the pulley farthest to the left when lookint at the engine from the front. Put a 15mm socket with a long-handled ratchet on the bolt in the center of the pulley, and turn the bolt clockwise. The tensioner assembly will rotate, and the belt will loosen. Slip the belt off of the alternator and adjacent idler pulley, creating enough slack so that you can gently let the tensioner back. Remove the belt.
To put the new belt on, start by looping it around the crank pulley (the one on the bottom), and follow the belt routing diagram on the radiator core support (should be a little sticker with the belt routing diagram). When you have the belt almost on, rotate the tensioner again so that you can slip the belt over the tensioner pulley, then ease the tensioner back so it stretches the belt tight. Make sure that the belt is properly seated in all the grooved pulleys (not hanging off of one edge or the other).
That's all there is to it... start the engine and make sure it doesn't make any funny noises, and you're all done.

Yes, but common sense is in short supply.
