I remember hearing on the forum that theres no need to change the serpentine belt, What do you guys think about that? Did you guys change yours?

Supposedly one is easy to change (water pump I think) and the other one is a lot harder (alternator...or is it the other way around?) I just took mine to my friend and held him liable if he messed it up.

There are two belts, each has an adjuster which pivots on a bolt. You need to loosen both the pivot bolt and the adjuster all the way out. Then slip the old belts off, slip the new belts on. I dont have the part numbers handy but you can go to NAPA and have them look them up. One is the main/alternator belt, the other is the power steering/water pump belt. Clean your pullies before you put the new belts on. Youll need to remove the splash guards around your passenger side wheel well to get access to everything. Also, after you tighten the belts in, dont forget to tighten the pivot bolts really well so they dont back off while driving. That's about it.

I am about to change the belts on my P10. Is it any special tool required to get access to the belt tensioner by the power steering pump? It seems to be extremely tight, space wise.

For those who have changed their own belts:
Is that the most difficult part of the job is the access problem?

Thanks,
Nelson

Pretty much... I cant remember exactly but you should have the usual assortment of sockets and wrenches in 10 mm, 12 mm, 14 mm and 17 mm sizes. Good to have several extensions for your ratchet and also a breaker bar may be necessary if the pivot bolts are really on there tight.

I think the biggest difficulty with the belts is getting everything in place to get the old ones off and the new ones on. But once youve done it the first time, it's not that bad.


Good luck.

damn this is an old thread, anyways. i have changed both belts with simple hand tools so you don't need any special tools. real easy to do, just don't forget to loosen both bolts
