Hi all

I am pulling the EL engine out today and need to remove the PS pump but I cannot for the life of me see how to release the fan belt! Never had one of these before and have been staring at it for about 30 mins with no lightbulb going off...

Cheers
RD

If your strong enough, you can grab the belt down near the alternator, and pull up, then flick the belt off the idler pulley or P/S pump pulley.
