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.. :)

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.

simple enough as long as you can get underneath car to some degree, on the tensioner at the rear you should see a threaded block. find a suitable bolt to fit and wind bolt in carefully(as someone on here went to far and broke the block off.)until belt goes slack enough to remove. do a drawing of where belt routes before removing

refitting is in reverse. job done.

Exactly what happened. Found out a bolt....   Screwed it in.... It stated to slacken off but not enough to remove the belt.... 1/4 more turn the bugger cracked..... So down to euro and picked up for 50 quid... The rollers on the new one no where near as loose as the old... Fitted... new belt... job done... Keeps new bolt in a labeled bag with service history.. Thanks

It may not apear to be able to remove belt but it can be done without breaking tensioner, at least its sorted now.
