This is for the long belt that drives every thing except the water pump. I thought it would be easy like any other car, but it seems that I may have to remove the tensioner? It this true and is there any special procedure or caution that I should be taking when I remove the belt and tensioner???? Thanks!

Don't remove the tensioner. See that 1/2" square hole on the back side of it? That is for the drive lug of a 1/2" drive breaker bar. Insert it and use it as a lever to release tension.

I also thought it would be a pain in the butt to replace the belt. Seing as there is not much room to play with....I was plesantly suprised when I was able to change it in under 15 min :eek: ....I used rope to guide the belt through the bottom.... worked out very well :thumbsup:
