If it is a stretchy belt then just take the Stanley knife to it that's the easy way to remove it. Then i would always put the belt over the pulleys furthest away check alignment and then tighten it.

Did the belt change today and very easy to do,Took less than 30 mins.Inspected the old belt and found a slice or split right across the belt through the ribs.Good job I thinks.. :)

No squeaky squeeky? My new belt squeeks a little when cold, what brand of belt have you gone with?

Not sure if its squeeking as I haven't driven it yet, just sent missis out to sainsburys for food and wine ..lol. so hopefully belts still on and not sqeeking.Got a gates belt from fleebay not the stretchy kind but with the spring loaded tensioner locked in non tensioning position it was easy to get on etc..Now for the cambelt change.... :wacko:

I think it's the fact that mine is stretchy, i got a continental belt so I doubt the quality is poor.
