    It is for wankers like you........... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Now don't tell me you went and bought this truck and now you are trying to maintain it and are totally clueless on what you are doing? By the way, should I be expecting to bring home some shocks next weekend? /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    There's a belt tensioner on the thing that you have to untension to change the belts. It looks like a roller wheel.

    use either a half inch ratchet or a 15mm wrench to loosen the tension.. or just slip a rag arond the belt, and yank it over a smooth pulley... repeat to reinstall.. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Man with a serpentine belt setup you can have that belt off in less than 30 seconds. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Ummm its kinda weird to describe but basically you put whatever socket, torx, whatever (I havent had my belt off in a while so I dont remember what it is exactly) and use the longest rachet you can and just go the opposite way of the belt to relieve tension and pull it off.

    Yeah they're great until you lock up an alt. or ps pump a long way from a parts store.
    I seriously thought about doing the change over once, but now I'll stick to the v-belts just in case one of my accessories lock up. I'll still be able to drive home as long as the batteries are charged.

    As for belt replacement you can't beat them though. I like it on my van, just not on my beater. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
