I highly suggest a good year gatorback. I have a belt tensioner tool which is really just a long flat rod with a 3/8 rather head on it . I think you just use a 3/8 ratchet and a pipe if yo have it.(some might be 1/2 inch, not sure) relieve the the pressure on the tensioner with the ratchet. slide the belt off. put the new belt on and relieve the tension as you slide it onto the final pulley. the project is very easy.
