Hi There

In basic form off the top of my head

Take engine cover off
Take turbo intake pipe off (black plastic)
Take metal turbo pipe off (alloy intake)
Take off black box (resonator) that metal turbo intake pipe joins.
The belt tensioner is behind the resonator. Once the resonator is removed, use a socket on the tensioner to gain slack. There should be a pin hole to lock off the tensioner to facilitate a belt change. The new belt is still tight to get on. You should change the two plastic pulleys at the same time. They start to rattle which becomes prominent in the car. Refit in reverse. Careful of sharp edges on the back of the radiator. Good finger grazers!

I can't remember but you may also need to remove the air box just for elbow room. Its only one bolt and lift off. You may be OK. Just a point to note, there is a torx screw and a circlip on the end of the alloy pipe which secures it to the resonator. Both remove easily just don't loose them as they keep the pressurised air in. There is also a rubber "o" ring on each end of the metal pipe which seals in the pressurised air. Careful not to pinch this on refit. Its a straightforward job. Have fun!
