Default Replacing both pulleys and serpentine belt on V10

Dear Folks,

Does anyone have a photo guide in how to replace the idler pulley, tensioner and serpentine belt on a 2006 S8 D3 5.2L V10?

I have already checked out the workshop manuals.com site however there just doesn’t look like there’s enough room to access the components.

Any added guidance would be most appreciated.

Had mine replaced in situ with a load of other work and I didn't fancy having the bumper removed the bumper off for it.

My local place managed to do it but said it was very fiddly and helps if you have hobbit hands and know a lot of swear words.
