my power steering belt is worn and finally came off.

any tips on getting the new one on there? checked haynes but can't find the details I'm looking for...

do you have to remove other belts or the fan to get this on?

thanks!

Dude. This is very basic stuff. It all comes in a Chilton's book.

yeah okay. I did it last night. it was very easy. I just wasn't sure about how the tensioner bolt/bracket worked...I've never had that on any of my (old) cars. The Haynes book is vague at best, so I was just trying to get a little advice before heading home where there is no internet connection.

anyway, for posterity (for anyone else searching for how to do this basic repair), here are some things I observed:

- loosen the bolt on the "idler" pulley, which is the one on the right, highest up on the engine. I had to tap the bolt with a hammer to get the pulley to ride down the bracket. repeat until it's far enough down the bracket to get the new belt on.

- new belt can go on without removing the fan shroud or anything else. just carefully feed it around the fan blades.

- new belt goes on, tighten the adjusting bolt on the idler pulley until the belt has about a 1/4" deflection up there.

yeah, it was easy.
