serpentine belt

i need to get my serpentine belt off to move around some pulleys and check all of them cause im having some extremely high pitch noises from the belt drive that start when i start the jeep up and get louder as the the RPM's rise. so can anyone let me know the easiest way to remove the belt and put it back on?

I think there is a pulley on the belt that is the tensioner... put a wrench on it and it removes the pressure on the belt.... then take the belt off.... i think i have the same issue right now.... bet it's your idler pulley.... it usually is for some reason

The idler pulley under the power steering pump is the tensioner pulley. To remove the belt you loosen the bolt on bolt on the tensener pulley, don't remove it, then there is a long bolt behind the pulley that moves it down and loosens the belt. Kinda hard to explain, but see if someone else has a diagram.
