Best Answer

Replace belt by loosening center nut of idler pulley, unscrewing the smaller adjusting bolt of the idler pulley until the old belt can be lifted off. Reverse procedure to install, make sure the new belt is properly centered on all 3 pulleys. Tighten until you cannot move the belt 1/4 inch up and down, then start engine, run for 10 minutes, shut off engine, and re-check belt tension. You may have to re-set the tension once or twice more until the belt settles into the pulleys. It is normal for the belt to be slightly loose when cold-- will tighten when the engine is warm.
