I just did this tonight and I have some problems with the Haynes procedures.

first it says to rotate the tensioner anti-clockwise. This is incorrect. You have to move it clockwise. Second it says to use a 6mm drill bit, for me it would only take 4mm. :roll:

I ended up breaking the tensioner mount right off as I was pushing in the wrong direction. ;oops:

Luckily there was about 2mm left so I could still compress the tensioner and replace the belt.

I had to make a special tool to replace the tensioner pulley. It's very tight in between the bolt and the fender. All-in-all not too bad since it only has to be done every 60,000 miles!
