Serpentine belt replacement

Recommended Posts

Has anyone replaced their Serpentine belt ?   Good tutorial's out there, but want to know if anything else should be replaced at the same time ?   Tensioner ?  Pulleys ?  Bolts ?    I bought a '12  Panamera 4 and it only has 69K  so I'm going thru and changing most items for up to date maintenance.   Plugs, cabin filter, air filter, oil/filter, power steering reservoir.  Want to do the belt and tranny next.   I also have an '85 928 S  so I know when you get in to something, there's always something else that needs changed...so want to have all the parts when starting.  Thanx

Removing and Installing the drive belt

1. Remove engine cover.
2. Remove front air guide hose.

Note: Only remove the drive belt when it is cold.


1. Mark the running direction -arrow- of the drive belt with chalk.



2. Relieve the tension on the drive belt by loosening the tensioner using a suitable tool.
To relieve tension on the drive belt, turn the tensioner clockwise.



3. Remove the drive belt and lock the tensioner using locking pin T10060 A.


Install in reverse order.
