Well I see the LF has 2 drive belts, an inner belt for the water pump, and the outer for the AC & alternator. The outer belt has a tensioner, I don't see one on the inner one.


Anyone know how to replace the inner belt?

The water pump belt is essentially a "Rubber band",,,

You can simply cut the belt off,, then it has to be tripped back on for install.. I just take and start it over water pump pulley and rotate crank while guide belt onto water pump pulley

Well, that's interesting. When you say rotate the crank, is that something I can do with a wrench or socket at the pulley?

Thanks for the reply, I wasn't sure how many would have done this on newer model cars.

Cut the belt off.... you planning to re-use it --- just saved you $45 + shipping

Roll new belt on using or socket at crank pulley bolt --- save you $45 again..


Coworker bought 1 similar to that off tool truck,, ear too long for skinny pulley

If you want, you can send me $7 for a Wendy happy meal

Ha ha! Actually Lisle #59370 - a dual purpose tool for about $15-20. I'm not doing the belt for a while, but I appreciate the feedback so I know what I'm getting into.
