Not a lot of room and you can't use a regular 3/8" power bar to spring the idler.

I changed the alternator in mine once, I removed the belt the usual way by releasing the tensioner. Its a little hard though, eat some canned spinach 1st lol

Thank you very much Coby7...that thread gives me a good idea of what to expect when I do the job....that bar with the 3/8 drive on it looks like what i'll need

It is a complete bitch to change.

I ended up shoving a breaker bar vertically on a jack and using it to take torque off the tensioner so i could get the belt back on.
