Make a drawing to make sure you put the new belt back on correct. Start by removing the right side motor mount and all accessories from in front of the timing belt case. Then at the tension pulley and use a wrench or a bar to unload the spring. The pulley will only one way.

First make a drawing,how the belt is routed on the components because you will not remember to reinstall. Slip the belt off the tensioner then with the suitable wrench or bar unload the spring. The tensioner will have spring loaded,it will move in one direction so will get the belt slip off.

Well not knowing the year I can only give you a rough description. You need to removing any accessories in front of the timing cover. Then the cover is removed and the cams are locked so they won't move. Then the tensioner is loosened and the belt can be replaced.
