Help! Need to change accessory belts on 1990 2.9L
 
I cannot seem to figure out how to change the accessory belts on my girlfriends 1990 2.9L, I normally work on German cars which seem so much simpler all of a sudden...

Can anyone help?

You know the 2.9L is a German engine, right? :confused: :)

Should just be able to loosen the accessory, move it to release the tension and remove the belt. You'll see the slots in the brackets..

now i went to change all my belts to start with the rest are easy n ol'school simple but my air/cond belt has to come off first and it don't look simple realized theres like 10 bolts holding the whole unit front and behind it has a pivot point but theres a back bolt just underneath compressor has to come out i didn't have long enough or sturdy good wrenches to do this far as i can tell you have to remove every bolt completely take compressor off then other belts come off accordingly to reatach comp- put in pivot bolts first then tension bolts tention belt correctly then last remaining bolts torked down my opinion:joyman:

that is if you have air conditioning some 2.9l didn't have it they were aftermarket compressor units.
