Anyone have experience with changing accessory belts on a 2.5 NA?

Getting my 1988 924s ready for winter and I noticed the power steering belt had some cracking in it. I purchased both the alternator/AC and power steering belt but haven't had the chance to put them in yet. Given I have never changed these belts before I just wanted to know how other people have done it and what the proper procedure is for setting the tension without the tool. Thanks, any help is appreciated.

Thanks for the link this guy is great but do you know if he's got a vid about changing the accessory belts? If he's got one I can't seem to find it. Does Porsche have a different name for these belts that I'm not aware of?

Matt,

Just be sure you are clear on the thread direction when loosening the threaded rod tensioners. I seem to recall one end is a reverse thread. Dunno but eyeball it to be sure. Also, be sure you release tension of the accessory's mount (P steer pump, alternator) so it will swivel freely vs trying to unscrew the tensioners and lengthen them against the accessory still screwed tightly in place. Other than that its easy peazy. I tensioned mine by feel. The alt belt squealed a couple times, so I gave it a bit more tension and all is good. These are not critical like the timing belt and balance shaft belt.

Doug
