If you're talking about the auxiliary belt, then it is dead easy to do. Other than taking off the front right wheel, you'll need a crosspoint screwdriver and a flat blade ( for the plastic rivet ) to remove the access hatch to the engine bay, a nice long 15mm offset ring spanner and ideally an assistant to help feed the belt.

The 15mm offset ring is placed on the adjuster and turned anti-clockwise, not to undo the fastening but to untension it. With the tensioner wound back, just feed the belt around the pulleys and when everything is lined up, release the tension on the spanner. Refit access panel & wheel.

EDIT : The belt tensioner is the leftmost red circle in photo 3 on this page :

That photo is taken with the cam belt cover removed so you won't see the gubbins highlighted by the two right most red circles and the yellow marks are not relevant to an auxiliary belt change.
