Serpentine Belts

Is there a special procedure to changing the belts on this car? I can't find anything about the belts doing a search. Any help or tips would be appreciated. Bought the car a week ago.

Both belts use spring loaded tensioner pulleys. Only a few min. to change both.

Quick question i just finished replacing my serpentine belt for the main drive and the power steering. i did notice that for the power steering tensioner i didnt have to apply much force to pull it down.
As for the main belt. Did have to apply a bit of force.
Any inputs?

Also, If someone can clarify Ive also noticed a while back that the crank pulley wobbles Is this normal?
What happens is on the pulley the side closest to the engine does not wobble it remains flush to the engine. But on the pulley the farthest away from the engine. Looks like it wobbles or looks like you can also consider rapid vibration.
And info please. if you would like a pic. let me know just in case you didnt get my text.

Thanks everyone.

Knee-jerk response...NO pulley wobble should be occurring at all. Do a visual with the engine not running and see if the front face of the pulley has a deformity, as if struck with road debris or something. That situation would not be too serious and could be corrected with a well placed hammer strike.
