Default Serpentine Belt Tensioner Replacement in Camry 2005 4 Cyl

I am planning to replace serpentine belt and the belt tensioner in my Camry2005 4 cyl. Any advise/points how to make this seemingly difficult job easer?

I have a general idea after watching on you tube. Did not look easy to me,but I need to replace tensioner, because I have damaged it a little duringwater pump replacement. My car works great since the only the top part where socket fits to loosen the belt is damaged. I have used too much force when taking off the serpentine belt.

The water pump replacement was my most advanced car repair that I have everdone.

Thanks in advance,

Wes

I simply bought the Gates timing belt kits from RockAuto for my '99 Camry and '02 Sienna (V6). Kit contains timing belt, idler, tensioner, water pump.. The '99 Camry only had a spring for a tensioner, but the '02 Sienna has a tensioner under pressure: bolt it in place, install the belt, then release the pressure by pulling the pin off the tensioner. In theory you could recompress the tensioner with a vise or C-clamp, but I didn't have much luckwith that.
