Default 2011 Sentra 2.0 Serpentine belt change

Its time for a belt change. I did my 2006 Altima with a 2.5 but this Sentra is a tight compartment. Any suggestions on tools needed? What angle of attack and should I masking tape around it before threading it through and up (or down) between particular pulleys? Where is the tensioner release hex-bolt?
There is not a belt I can't change but I'd appreciate a technical tip from someone whose done this before.
I prefer going in from the top, but realize is the space to work?
........FYI, Helpful to alldoing this sort of install, I do own a #105058 Serpentine Belt tool purchased from ipdusa,com......worth every penny.

The tool you have is the key. Without the tool is very difficult. Here are the instructions from the service manual, that's exactly how I do it.

Thank you very much. This is great. Only one last thing.
I do have 2 remaining questions about the "suitable tool" for decompressing the auto-tensioner. A.) What size is the metric wrench? B.) In the diagram, Is that a "offset end wrench" like the following? ...I'd prefer to buy the specific offset wrench rather than a full set of offsets.

A. I think is either 14 o 15 mm.
B. Yes. You could buy the one that comes with 14mm on one side and 15 the other side.

I like Harbor Freight for some things:
8 Piece Metric Offset Box Wrench Set

You can get a regular box wrench on it. Should be 14mm
