undo fan shroud and clutch fan (assuming it's still there). the clutch fan is reverse thread. loosen 24mm nut on P-steer pulley and remove belt. loosen 13mm lock nut on alternator and remove belt. loosen 24mm lock nut on AC belt.

when tightening the belts there should be about 10mm deflection. if it's kept this way it should help to stop that annoying cold start up belt squeal the early E-series had.

hope i've helped
