So finally I got my belt removed and replaced. To all who say this is an easy job I humbly disagree. I tried using the harbor freight serpentine tool but it does not fit into the tight spot.
What ended up working for me was moving the steering fluid reservoir (no need to disconnect any piping) and a 9/16 (same as 14mm) wrench with another wrench as leverage.
you need to be careful not to damage the steel pipes (which I guess are ABS) Also remember that the new belt will require more de-tensioning of the tensioner pulley compared to when removing the old belt.
Again, it's a major hassle including removing the bottom splash shield etc for next time I'll try and find a long shaft 9/16 or paying an hour labor for local mechanic.
Here are some pictures:
