If you followed the "Bentley" belt removal procedure--including inserting the locking pin in the tensioner while pulling on the belt to move the tensioner plate--you'd have no trouble figuring out the installation. That's probably why there's no installation description. So if you put a 13 mm wrench on the acorn nut on the front of the tensioner plate, you can pull up (counter clockwise) and relieve tension enough to find that locking hole and stick a nail in there. Then the belt goes on fairly easily.

tensioner enough, slipping it back over the non ribbed roller would be a bit
easier than over the A/C compressor? We'll see. I can't believe its not in
the Bentley. Nice diagram of the belt system though, I'll use that to try
and figure the correct leverage.
