Changing the Polyrib Belt

Note: Part numbers may change over time, so please make sure you have the latest part numbers. Parts you will need: 1 ea 9A110221601 Tools you will need: Tools to remove rear bumper cover as outlined in: http://www.gettydesi...Rear_Bumper.pdf 30mm open end wrench (large crescent wrench possible) small prybar or screwdriver 16mm socket 8” 3/8” extension torque wrench Begin by removing the rear bumper (see other tutorial). Remove the air filter housing (see other tutorial). Look down from the top and you will see a bolt stick out past the inner mount. Looking from the rear of the car, you will see a hole to the left of the threaded tow hook mount. Using an 8” extension and a 16mm socket, access the bolt through this hole and remove. Use a small prybar or screwdriver between the pulley and the cage to allow removal of the spacer. Using a 30mm wrench on the tensioner housing, twist clockwise to loosen tension. Slide the ribbed belt from the alternator pulley. Slide the belt from all of the pulleys on top. Go under the car and slide the belt off the rest. Install the new belt leaving the alternator pulley to last. Using a 30mm wrench on the tensioner housing, twist clockwise to loosen tension. Slide the ribbed belt onto the alternator pulley. Use the prybar again to reinstall the spacer. Slide the bolt through the hole in the bumper and tighten to 27 ft-lbs. Reinstall your bumper cover and air filer housing.

thank you for the DIY, so far it has been very helpful. I am having a problem getting the spacer back in, do i need to lift the engine a little bit? Can i lift the engine with a jack and piece of wood? My car is on jack stands, I am also replacing the spark plugs. Not sure if this matters...
