Re: Drive Belt Change on I6

Youll need a 3/8 drive ratchet or a 1/2 dr to 3/8 adapter mate.
Look on the front face of the tensioner body, there you will see where the drive connects into it. Push the tensioner back so it rotates, releasing the belt tension & c/o the belt.

Re: Drive Belt Change on I6

use the head of a ratchet in the key on the idler arm to move the tensioner and release the tension off the belt.. follow the diagram on the underside of the bonnet to re-route the new belt and then with the head of the ratchet again move the tensioner to allow the belt to go on all the pulleys...

Re: Drive Belt Change on I6

dont forget to pull the fans out.. much easier.. you can do it quite easly without realsing the tensioner... lift the belt near the water pump pully and slip it off. same on re aplication

Re: Drive Belt Change on I6

No - it's FANS - there are 2 electric fans in a plastic housing - held by two small bolts at the top - removing the whole unit takes about 2 minutes (2 bolts and an electrical plug) and you then have HEAPS of room to access the front of the engine.

Re: Drive Belt Change on I6

yes it is the same for au2, like injected250 said take out the fans youl thank us later, and use an old insulated wire near the water pump to pull the belt off, wire to stop you bruising your knuckles, and put the belt on aprt from the water pump, and use the wire to put it on, this is the easiest way to do it.
