Best Answer

I use a metric wrench on the center bolt of the idler to remove the tension off of the belt then just remove it. The new belt will be tighter and thereby harder to put on. There is a lot of tension on the idler so be careful. There should be a picture showing the routing of the new belt on the radiator support. This isn't that hard to do as my wife has helped me do it.
