yeah its pretty straight forward you will need to take the airbox out, can be a bit of a pain as you have to work under the intake manifold but im sure it wont be to much of a problem

Use a 5mm drill bit to keep the tensioner off the belt, its easy, dont you have a manual, its all in there.

A 5 mm drill bit? WTF? I used to use a 1/4 drive wrench and it worked perfectly for a while.

Hey i found doing the leads from under the car a hole lot easier, and doing a belt use a 1/4 inch breaker bar to take the tension of and then take the belt of then do the same when you put it on. simple job did mine last friday,

when you release tensioner with 1/4 in bar there is a hole you can put a 5mm drill bit in (as mentioned earlier) so it stays released. that way you can thread the belt around without having to keep pressure on socket bar. and yes it is easier if you take the thermo's out

yeah you can do it your way but i havent done it that way, i found if you release the tension on the belt then pull it of, then set the belt up except the idler pulley then take tension of and pull it over the pulley. i found that to be simple. and i agree taking the fans out helps as it give you more room. but you dont need to.
