I would ask why you think belt is broke? Does motor crank oddly? Cranking motor with broke belt means damage is already done.
I bought a vue with mistimed belt. I could not rotate crank 360 by hand. So I redid timing and motor was able to turn 360. But it had no compression. So I pulled heads.
Cranks oddly. I went to leave for work and it didn't start but sounded odd when turning over.
