http://www.focushacks.com/index.php?modid=75 The link above will give an indication on how to proceed. However, be aware that the 15mm nut on the automatic belt tensionner must be turned counterclockwise to release the tension on the belt. Not much torque needed when correctly performed. When working from above the belt should be monted on all flywheels except the idler pulley. Whilst turning the belt tensioner (counterclockwise) push the belt down under the idler pulley and release the torque on the tensionner nut to complete the installation.
