Hey gang I need to put a new serpentine belt on the love bus and having trouble.. Is the only way to change it is to undo the right side motor mount? Any tips or tricks would be great.. Thanks :)

Cool thanks mate.. I will put a trolly jack with a bit of wood under the motor on that side when I undo the motor mount..

That is a good idea, it is quite easy to do, just wrench the tensioner against the spring tension to release the belt. Draw a picture of the belt run before removing the belt so you can easily reinstall it. It is easy to forget the pulley order.

Good luck to you
I am trying the same job plus cam belt plus alternator and water pump on a 2.9 CRDi engine and it's taking ages and loads of patience
These engines were obviously installed complete and not much thought put to in-situ repairs
Cheers
Rob
