Camaro Belt Replacement?

Hi,
I own a 1997 Chevy Camaro with the 3.8L motor.It has about
60,000 miles,and it looks like the serpentine belt needs replacing.
The diagonal seam on the belt looks suspisous.
Whats the steps neccasary to replace this?I've done one on my 91 f-150 302 engine,but not familar with chevy motors.Thanks

Belt choice??

Hi,
I was shopping for the replacement belt tonight.Autozone had 2 types.(1) Kelly Springfield.(2) Goodyear "Gator-back".
There was only a $2 difference.Is the Goodyear GatorBack type a better belt?
I also found Dayco "Dyno-flex" at Pepboys for about the same price.This has continual type v grooves like the Kelly Springfield.
Which one would you recomend?Thanks

Either belt is fine. I use only Dayco or Gates or OEM.

Cheaper for me. I can buy the parts far cheaper through my local jobber/WD than online and get it within 10 minutes .
