Default replacing belt

Ok...something so simple...and I'm gonna ask...how do you get the old one off...I don't have any special tool or anything. And also...is there a specific torqing spec for the idler pully...I'm replacing that too.

not sure about torque specs, but the belt is a PITA to get off. on left side (pass) side, there is a pulley under the alternator, that is the tensioner.

Sorry, got a little hasty wanting to give acurate information just wrong part. The idler pulley bolt is supposed to be 37lb-ft of torque.

The GM Service DVD, I bought it from E-bay motors...it covers Gm vehicles from '88 - '05...I tried to get the table of torque values for engine components but would not open up in the thread since I had to try and do a print to file for my printer and it just was not compatible with anything other than MS Office Digital file reader...I have the specific document # if you want..
