Alfa 156 2.4 jtd Aux Belt Change - Help Please!

Hi Alfa Fans,

My 156 2.4jtd squeals when cold - from the many helpful threads here I've worked out that this is most likely the Aux Belt & Tensioner. I want to have a go at changing them myself & not having worked on this car before have a couple of questions before I rip it apart!

It seems that as well as the two idler pulleys, there's also a spring-loaded tensioner, which is a part costing about 150! Should I replace this too? Also, if I do need to replace this tensioner, then it looks as though I need to remove the crank pulley, and that seems to require a special tool to remove (these may be RIBE bolts - anyone know what size?).

Last question - how do I tension the new belt, or is this done automatically by the tensioner?

Hopefully these are easy questions for someone who's done this before!

Many thanks!
