Follow the belt around. One of the idler pullys is actually a spring loaded tensioner. It may have a square hole or a bolt to grap with a ratchet or a wrench. Pull on it to creat slack in the belt and the slip it off one of the pulleys. I'd try to leave the routing intact as much as possible because it can be confusing to put back on.
