Where can I find a serpentine belt tool?

I'm looking for the belt tool that has the 3/8 drive at a 45 degree angle. I've heard it exists but I can't find it. The normal long tools are too long and the firewall interferes.

The parts stores only have the ones with the 3/8 drive not at a 45 degree angle

Check harbor freight, amazon, or just google it. You might be able to find what you are looking for.

I've tried. This is my last resort.

Maybe you can find a tool and you can try to heat it up with a torch and then try bending it on a vice ? And then cut it to the right size ? Just an idea ?

The normal tool works but you have to remove the engine mount, which I will be doing next week. This tool allows you to avoid removing the engine mount. However, this specialty tool costs at least $90 new, while a normal serpentine belt tool costs $20 new.
