Serpentine belt

08 3.0
Need to replace both belts but someone told me that I need a special tool to put the ac belt back on, main belt looks pretty straight forward. Is it possible to do it without the tool?

The special tool is a large wrench to remove the fan/clutch. If you have the wrench then just give it a whack with a big hammer, and remember that it is threaded in the opposite direction. Therefore, clockwise will loosen it.

No it has an electric fan, but the ac doesn't have a tensioner to get the belt off it's just from the crank to the ac no other pulleys/tensioner
