Re: changing the fan belt on an ED
You have to take the power steering belt off first to get to the alternator belt, and the way you undo the bolts is the opposite. You first loosen the 24mm nut, then adjust tension with a 13mm spanner to remove belt on the p.s. On the alt. belt, you first loosen the 13mm bolt, then adjust tension with the 24mm. Installation is reverse. Make sure the alt. belt is quite tight, otherwise it will squeal- the multiribbed belts are known for this.
