serpentine belt replacement

How hard (or easy) is it to replace the serpentine belt? All my other cars are simple...nothing in the way and I usually change them out in minutes. My belt is very cracked on my 1990 coupe. I see a bracket in the way as well as a suspension part (maybe part of the strut). Any procedures on how I change the belt out. Thank you.

I just finished changing it out. I had to remove the one bracket which was the easy part, then had to remove the 2 bolts to the other pivoting bracket that attached to the engine and loosen up the pivoting belt to give me enough slack to slide the belt through. All together it took about an hour from start to finish tightening everything back up.

Wow - 2 mins must be the all time record... I have my work cut out for next time... In all fairness, I did change my 91 Regal and 2005 Outlander in under 5 mins. My 49 truck is a little longer being it has 3 belts and adjustment screws instead of the tension pulley....lol
