Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
Actually it's a fuel pump/raw water pump combo and the belt is for the raw water pump however they are one unit in the same housing. This is done correctly by loosening the tensioners on the belts which allows each belt to be removed, each belt has a tensioner that is made to tighten/loosen the belt. In some cases you might have better luck removing the raw water pump pulley and or entire raw water pump to replace the belt. For engines with serp belt drives there will be an auto tensioner that you use a ratchet to move and remove the belt however depending on engine sometimes a pulley or accessory must be removed to replace the actual belt.
For more info I would need the exact engine model number.
Thank you!
