    it is simple as long as you know the route the belt takes. Run the belt round everything except the alternator. There is a pulley just in front of the alternator that you pull towards the front of the car with a spanner to release tension, pull this forward enough to allow you to get the belt onto the alternator then release. job done. check out the how 2 on changing the alternator, it'll show you the pulley I mean.

    it's for a 1.9CDTi, but I imagine the technique would be similar for all engines or at leasts give you enough info to let you figure it out.
