Jason Scott's diagram is good if you have a SOHC engine
and you can use a 3/8" drive square end into the tensioner
if you have the DOHC engine, the following link is the diagram for it

Try checking with your parts supplier. They will match the belt # for your vehicle. Sometimes there will be a diagram on the belt packaging. If you have the belt and you know it's the right one, here's a way to figure it out. One side of the belt will be smooth, the other has ridges. The ridges will be on the inside. Pulleys with grooves will have the belt ridges fit into them. Pulleys that are smooth will have the belt go under them so that the smooth side contacts the smooth pulley. They call it a serpentine belt because the belt snakes its way around the pulleys.
Hope this helps.
