I think the alt belt is the 3rd belt in on the crank pulley, ie., you have
to drop the Ps and A/C belts to get to it. That said it is not too bad.
That also said you should do all three once you are there as they will all
be off. I'd put it up there with changing plugs as to difficulty, just
leave yourself some time. The only problem I ran into was loosening all the
compressor bolts to get the A/C belt off. The belt was pretty tight still
and on reinstall I had to let the engine turn itself about 1/3 crank to lift
Dear list members:
Driving home from work last night, the alternator belt snapped. The car
still ran and I made it home no problem. A few basic questions: Is there
any problem driving it a couple of miles down the road to my mechanic? How
difficult a job is it to replace the belt? Should I replace all v-belts at
the same time?
