Ah... Ok so you'll end up ONLY with the alternator...
Figure 1 solution should have some bolt on the alternator that allows for a little bit of play to fit and remove the belt.
I could not get that right with the belt straight to Alternator and back... The part of the belt going to the alternator rubs against the part of the belt coming back to the crank with the tensioner in its normal place.
If you keep the idler pulley 7, but change it that it has grooves, not smooth, the routing will work, but I cannot guess the length now, but you can measure that with a piece of string.
