I have a Chilton repair manual, and it shows me where the V-belt is, but it does not really tell me how to take it off. First off, the book is wrong because it says that the serpentine belt is on the outer side, but it is actually next to the engine. It says nothing on how to loosen the air conditioning belt to get it off.
Do you
have the same problem?
