No worries now, I got the alternator out with plenty of well-placed blows from a hammer.

Cool, I'm going to use this on my P11, I need to install the UR pulleys. Already loosened the huge 27mm crank nut, and the 4 10mm nuts on the WP pulley, so just need to get the belts out.

Probably, but then it'll squeal in a week cuz its Autozone crap. If you do really have to go there :headshake make sure to at least get a Gates (which i doubt they'll carry) or a Goodyear. If they have neither, so somewhere that does.

And they're "drive" belts, not serpentines. And they should be replaced about every 60K

one thing to remember is to recheck the tension of the belts after a week or two because they will stretch during that period of time

Nice write up. After replacing fuel and cabin filters (read the write ups here) and a trip to the chiro from bending over so much, I just let the mechanic do the belts. Not worth the pain in my back to bend over trying to screw with those things.

Just adding to this thread, I just changed mine and thought I'd give my 2 cents:

Use a 1/4" 12 pt socket, 12mm, to get to the tensioner lock bolt and tensioner bolt for the PS pump.

After loosening the power steering pump tensioner, you have no room to tap the tensioner bolt which gives it slack and allows you to pull the belt off. The best thing to do is get under the car and loosen the PS pump pivot bolt. It's 14mm and is opposite of the weldnut that you will see at the bottom of the PS pump. You can then move the pump by hand to get the new belt on (or old belt off).

How much different is this than a P11? I would imagine it would almost be identical, but I've been wrong before. A local mechanic said you would have to jack up the motor it order to do the job.

i did this on my p11 a month ago, its basically the same as a p10. the part numbers are probably the same, but dont qoute me. jacking the motor is a little overboard, unless you have huge hands and very limited tool supply. the hardest part is getting your wrench onto the power steering belt adjuster.
