The belt goes flat side onto the tensioner, there is only one way round it can go

Yeah if you've got AC + PAS you need to remove one side of the mount, its easier to put a jack under the engine (use a piece of wood to spread the load) and remove the side that bolts to the chassis leg.

Seriously it can only go on one way round

Ribbed side goes around all pulleys then then pull the slack back on its self so it goes flat side around the tensioner.. Its normally easier to fit the belt to the PAS/AC + tensioner then then slacken the tensioner and pull it over the alternator.

Right.. put the belt around all pulley, then you see the gap between the bottom pulley and your alternator (in your last pick) you need to pull the belt through there and over to the tensioner.

Well done Davey. Yours is better than the autodata one ahah


I would rather lose by a mile because i built my own car, than win by an inch because someone else built it for me.
