Re: changing the fan belt on an ED

easy as pie.. You need a 24mm (i think) and a 13mm spanner to release and tighten the nut on the alternator bracket/tensioner

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.

Re: changing the fan belt on an ED

i use a 15/16th's spanner as it is a better fit than the 24mm in my experience. just cut the old belts off and slide the new ones over the clutch fan. i also like to degrease my engine before doing stuff like this as you will be alot cleaner when youve finished.
