Good afternoon,

I attached the procedure for removing the tensioner and installing it for you below so you can gain access to the struts.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you.

Well, I think lifting the engine was quite a bit more work than I intended to try to do. I sprayed some belt rejuvenator or conditioner or whatever that stuff is called on the belt and I'm hoping that'll hold for a while. Thanks for your help.

That is very temporary. It will wear off very quickly.
