Experience has taught me to replace both pulleys at the same time. Just remember that the tensioner pulley's nut has a left handed thread. Two people can do it with a breaker bar alone but a suspension spring compressor works well to compress the tensioner. There is no need to remove the wheel well liner. One can feed the belt around the proper pulleys with the aid of a trouble light, a yard stick and maybe the hook of a clothes hanger.
