I put a 22mm socket on a half inch drive to which I added a 2' extension pipe which rested on the driver's side area ahead of the battery -IIRC. Just 2 short bursts did it! My car is a bit different from yours, but I am sure you'll find a solid place for the pipe to rest before cranking.
However to tighten it back to 130 ft/lbs, you'll need to know ahead of time what you'll be using. In my case, a home made pry bar in a flywheel tooth did the job.
P.S. Don't forget to disconnect the spark plugs first. You don't actually want the engine to start!

I learned the hard way...My pulley came off the other day! That sucked. Never left the vehicle just backed out enought to make me angry.

I used a Vice-Grip chain wrench on the pulley with a breaker bar on the bolt and had no problems. Those Vice-Grip chain wrenches are worth their weight in gold.
I used that also last belt change. The beaty of this little Vice-Grip chain wrench (i used it also on the cam pulleys when i replaced the seals) is that you can always - the moment it's set - find something immovable to wedge the short handle on. That leaves both your hands free to work. Use a piece of belt on the pulleys to protect them of course.
