Default belt tensioner replacement

I'm trying to find a diagram to replace the belt tensioner in my 1999 5.2 L Dodge Durango. Anyone know where I can get a diagram and instructions without have to pay anything? If I can't do it myself, I have a friend that is a mechanic that can do it but I haven't had my vehicle for over a week and am going crazy. Please help if you can! Thanks

I'm not finding the FSM on the FAQ thread. I've looked twice and maybe I'm just missing it.

This is very easy to do. you will need a open end wrench to place on the nut radiator side of the pulley moving this releases the tension and you can remove the belt. Before doing this take a picture and just memorize the directions the belt went (not that hard). release the tension and slid the belt to the side DO NOT REMOVE IT. then on do the bolts holding the tensioner on and replace with the new on (it can only go on in 1 direction so no worries) then using the picture or memory release the tension on the tensioner and replace the belt. Now enjoy your D...

I have a 99 and replaced mine already so when I say it is easy it is.
