Just had mine done.. mechanic had to remove psgr side motor mount to release belt. Not a fun job.

trust me this ne job you want to pay someone to do, you need to lower the engine cradle to remover the PS motor mount,

http://www.just .com/questions/5psw-replacing-serpentine-belt-1998

it is the same for a 97. full illustrations and step by step directions.

you will need an 18mm for the mounts and a 15 mm for the tensioner. it is an involved job but doable for the amateur. just make sure you have the engine supported and that the wood use is very important.

-------------------------------------------------------------------

This isn't a job if you aren't mechanically inclined. I didn't want to have to take the motor mount off, so I found an alternative solution, which involved me taking a reciprocating saw to the lower spacer on the motor mount so that I could slip the belt in underneath. I then used a thick washer to make the difference, and it'll allow me to easily change it in the future.

You will need some specialized tools, mainly (if I remember correctly) a reverse torx bit (just like the impression left by a torx bit). The job took me two days because I was trying to figure things out. Like the OP said, not impossible, but if you aren't sure you can do the job then you will be asking for trouble.
