main belt tensioner replacement procedure

1087 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Kanon
Has anyone replaced the main belt tensioner by yourself (the one that's on the right - passenger - side of the engine, with 2 screws and is visible from the top). I hear people do this alone.

Do I remove the 2 screws first and then remove the belt? Or do I remove the belt first and then unscrew the tensioner? The belt is pretty tight obviously and I don't want to damage it by pulling it off while tensioner is still on. :lookinup:

any one?

I've had a squeaky belt syndrome so I've been removing the belts frequently while diagnosing. You can just use the appropriate sized crescent or box wrench, just watch your knuckles.
