M42 belt install

I managed to snap all but my power steering belts today. Since the alternator/fan belt drives the PS belt, nothing was working anyways. I had to snip the PS belt to install the alternator/fan belt. My question is, how do I installed the PS belt? There doesn't seem to be any screw or bolt to loosen it or move it around. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Bry

Thanks Allen, but didn't really help since the 4 cyl belt configuration is completely different. Thanks anyways.

No thanks, I like to do things on my own. All I have to figure out is how to retract the pully arm and the rest is dummy proof.

Why should I pay $70 for an hour of labour or more when I can do it myself for free? The belts only costed $20 for both of them mind you. Plus I have to change them every 2-3 years anyways, might as well learn how to change them myself.

i change mine atleast once a year.. for the cost of the belts it's worth it!

try and get under the car and pull off the shroud.. your belt setup is different then mine but the PS should be the same. you'll see an arm on the front just below the ps pump.. you need to losen three bolts to ajust the pump correctly.

good luck

there is a easier way to put the belts in without taking it apart.

something called jumping in the belts. When you are putting in the belts put it around the pully and hold it with the screw driver at the end of the other pully, get someone to lighlty start the engine and quickly turn it off..it will instantly spin the pully wichi will make the belt to jump on to the pully..no hassel..make it about less then 10min... I';ve learned it from my mech. smart. huh?


(you are not completly starting the car just up to the point where the pully will be moving and turn it off quickly. so you wont get your partner's hand to be cut off....there are fan blades on the way...hahah)

I thought of the very same thing yesterday, but the idea scared the shit out of me. Is this dangerous?

Dave, wanna help me? You can stick your hand in

Actually, I got mixed up. The center lowest belt is the AC belt (Has all these groved lines) and the one on the right is the power steering belt (has teeth like the Fan/Alternator belt).

I can see the bolt for adjustment for the power steering belt, but I don't see any for the AC belt (Compressor).

The guy beside me thought I was drawing a picture of a pair of tits.

I guess I have to jack up the front of the car then right? Is there a cover over the bolt I have to loosen? I've heard this is true on the E30, I can't see any sort of bolt anywhere! HELP!!!!!

Still got those ignition wires? I may in interested in them.

Thanks,

Bry
