    You will need the tensioner wrench.

    The Kent Moore kit has the tensioner wrench. The Baum kit does not include the wrench. A Craftsman wrench will not work as it is too shallow.

    I dont think the 'tom' kit has the needed wrench.

    We have a couple Kent Moore kits available, and of course, several Baum kits. Our rental kits include the required wrench. 30 day rental.

    As for the engine. Used for about 10 years. The are several configurations. Mostly related the different pulley assemblies etc.

    Some Saab's have a adjustable lower tensioner. Many latter (Saturn/Catera) versions have a fixed pully.

    Bank 1-2 tensioners. Several different versions available. Also updated tensioners. I think the rule for the tensioners is 'black is bad, brown is good.'

    All use the same timing belt. That being said, the belt has paint marks on it for direction of rotation, TDC, and cam marks. But being there is more then 1 version. Most belts have 2 sets of TDC marks, and multiple cam TDC marks. The trick is figuring out which paint marks to use.

    It should be noted: TDC marks for both the crank at engine are at the bottom of the engine. Not to be confused with BDC.

    The job can be done. IF you have the tool. Certainly easier then installing a TCC transmission solenoid on a Northstar L480 PO741 issue.

    Picture is AWD Saturn VUE timing belt change. Using Baum 4145 kit.

    I have a lot of pictures of the timing belt in my "engine removal" thread. It might help to see it before you start tearing apart your engine.

    yes, I have gone through your thread many, many times. very nice thread BTW. Tons of good information in there. I certainly wasn't trying to slight your thread. I just thought it would be cool to have the timing belt/tensioner procedure itself documented with pictures.

    thanks,

    scott
