Question about 2006 Toyota Tacoma
What is the procedure to change serpentine belt on my tacoma? where is the tension pulley, WHAT TOOLS REQUIRED? diagrams.
On my 2005 Tacoma with the 4.0L V6, I found it easier to change the belt from under the truck. Just remove the skid pan. Plenty of room to install the belt. The tensioner pulley is the one at about 2-o'clock from the crankshaft with the belt nearly all the way around it.

Here is your Solution!
You will need to Locate the Belt Tensioner. It has a Large Pulley on a Bracket that Has a Bolt in the Middle and a Smaller Pulley that Goes Under the Belt and Holds Tension on it. You will need to get a Wratchet, Socket, and Cheater Bar. Turn the Bolt On the Top Large Pulley with the Wratchet and Cheater Bar. This will Lower the Smaller Pulley So that you will be Able to Remove the Belt. Please Rate My Response! Thanks! P.S. the link below is for the Belt Routing Diagram.

Do not forget to check/replace the idlers too. I also highly recommend a Goodyear Gatorback belt as a replacement. Better than OEM IMO.
