Re: V6 Aux belt / tensioners change
Auxiliary belt is dead easy.
remove offside wheel and forward mudguard.(the plastic wheel arch bit)
Locate the auxiliarry belt looped around the aircon compressor alternator etc and find the tensioner.
Have as nail or other suitable metal pin to put through the tensioner holes when lined up.Put spanner on tesioner and take strain off and place pin to hold in place when the holes align.
Remove belt...replace new beplt in same orientaion.
Release tension and pin.
Replace arch and wheel.
Hry presto job done.
