Release tension on the belt, remove the top two bolts and remove the arm that holds the pulley. With that off, you can replace the the squeaky, space-ship sounding annoyance, re-install the arm, re-tension and you're done. Make sure that the pulley isn't rubbing the timing cover, as I have seen them get bent and wear holes.
