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...

Great write up! More difficult to change the belt in a 997.2. It took me about two hours to get this done, but I couldn't have completed this job without your instructions. Thank you!

You don't have to remove the rear bumper cover. Just remove your license plate and plate mount. There is an access hole that allows you to remove the spacer bolt.
