Hi, my name is***** you do not need to remove the fan to replace the serpentine belt. You simply rotate the tensioner to relieve the tension on the belt and insert a pin (a 4mm drill bit works fine) to lock the tensioner in place. If you would like, I can send you the detailed factory workshop instructions for this procedure.
Just checking in. Did you get the job done?
Excellent! Glad you got it done. If you would please take a moment to rate my service on this question I would appreciate it.
