My understanding is that I need to follow these steps to replace a drive belt:
- Use a breaker bar and 19 mm socket and turn the tensioner release nut clockwise to release tension on the belt.
- Remove old belt.
- Put on new belt (following diagram).
- Put tension back onto belt by turning tensioner release nut counter clockwise.
The problem I am having is that I cannot get a socket onto the release nut as there is not enough room between the nut and the fender:
UPDATE: Bolt pictured above is the wrong one - the one I should have been trying to turn is part of the tensioner body and is not really a bolt per se but a "handle" if you will to attach your wrench to (see this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX27hH39mQM).
I will be trying again when I have time and will update further.
