Thanks for holding!

When replacing the belt on this vehicle, there is a special tool that will aid a great deal - Drive Belt Tensioner Tool. This tool has an extended handle to better reach and turn the tensioner. You can usually rent this tool from most local big-chain parts stores. For easier viewing/printing, I've wrapped up the procedure to replace the belt into a PDF file.

Hi! I noticed this thread was still open, so I wanted to check in and see how you made out? Did you get the belt replaced? Any other questions you had? Did you find my answer helpful?
