INSTALLATION
1. Hook the auxiliary drive belt onto all of the pulleys except for the water pump pulley. Hook the drive belt onto water pump pulley last.

CAUTION: Confirm belts are completely set on the pulleys.

2. Release tensioner, and apply tensions to belt.

CAUTION: *Avoid placing hand in a location where pinching may occur if the holding tool accidentally comes off.
*Do not loosen the auto-tensioner pulley bolt. (Don't turn it counterclockwise. If turned counterclockwise, the complete auto-tensioner must be replaced as a unit, including pulley.

3. Turn crankshaft pulley clockwise several times to equalize tension between each pulley.
