    It would be good for you to get a diagram of the routing of the belt from a workshop manual (Amazon,com, or your local public library).

    The book says aboug $70 for the belt and 7/10ths of one hour for a professional mechanic, so figure 3X that for the DIY person. Not too bad as long as you don't have a bad back.
