    Serpentine belt replacement...

    ... Just an FYI for those of you who haven't done this yourself.

    I replaced my belt this past summer when I replaced all my pulleys. I went in from the top. Somehow I miss routed the belt.

    I replaced my belt earlier this week. This time I went in from the bottom. I found this way to be WAY easier.

    All you need to do is remove your front skid and you will have easy access to the pulley system. It will help to have an extra hand in there while doing this job (to move the tensor pulley for the slack while routing the belt), but I was able to get this completely done solo in under 10 minutes.

    You never know when you'll need it, and you'll be super glad you have one when you do need it! Plus it's light, doesn't take up a lot of space, and can be used in a multitude of applications in an emergency situation.
