Hello Welcome to Just Answers. My name is Bill.

You are looking to replace the belt correct?

Expert:  Bill McCusker replied 9 months ago.

the easy way to replace the fan belt is to loosen the tension bolt on the alterntor remove the three bolts that hold the drive shaft to fly wheel and remove the belt. Just becareful to not get the belt wrapped around anything.. reverse the steps to install..
