You need to get a 17mm wrench on the tensioner ear and release the tension to change the belt.


Not sure how much room there is to work with on RHD, there isn't a lot on LHD either.

The alternator has a manual adjuster and a lock down nut. The lock down is 15mm, and the adjuster screw in the back is 13mm. You may have to do this from underneath, as the brake booster is probably there.

yep, the RHD and LHD have the same layout, except the steering and brake components being on the other side.

Them 2 belts are pretty easy to change, look for the timing belt How To, the first few steps are those belts

Fuzzy I just did this and is a very tight fit. I took the upper and mid mounts off and jacked the motor up for better clearence.

You took the mounts off and jacked the motor up to change the Serpentine Belts?... You didn't have to do all that.
