Re: Quantum Timing Belt

I know on the 4000's of the same era, under the front bumper is a small 
grill that snaps out thus giving you access to the nut with an extension. 
Thats the easy part... the tough part is turning it... It doesnt seem to 
matter if you have someone with the foot on the brakes, or having it in 
gear etc.... but I did it the old fashioned way, with a braker bar, you 
might have better luck with impact wrench.
