To replace the drive belts you must

1)- Rise up the front right side of the vehicle and remove the tire.
2)- There is a cover in front of you that needs to be removed. This cover has three bolts, one facing you, one facing up, and the third one facing the tire's location. You must us a 10mm nut socket and need an extension.

3)- Release the nut of the AC/alternator tension pulley, and the tension bolt. Both bolts must be turned counterclockwise. The tool needed is 14mm.
4)- In order to work faster with the AC/alternator tension bolt, you can remove the oil pan splash cover, as seen in picture, and use a wrench wih extension.

(*Note, if you are replacing both belts, skip step 5)

5)- Release the tension bolt enough to remove easily the belt and replace it with a same size belt. For proper installation follow the direction of the belt showed in the graphic posted in step #4.

From here, the process is to be sure that the belt is properly inside the pulleys and adjust the tension bolt, adjust the pulley nut.

6)- I was recommended to replace both belts even if one of them is not as bad as the other. In order to remove the steering power belt, the AC/alternator belt must be removed first.

7)- Release the bracket bolt and the tension bolt, with a 14mm tool.

8)- Release the tension bolt enough to remove easily the belt, try to release it the most you can, because the new belt will need lots of free space to be installed, and giving them short space will give you hard times. The bracket bolt must be released only enough to be loose, no more than two turns, just enough to make it free.

9)- Install the new steering power belt following the direction of the belt showed in the graphic of step #7, be sure the canals fit properly, and adjust the tension pulley bolt. Adjust the bracket bolt.

10)- Install the AC/alternator belt following instructions in step #5.

11)- Give a visual inspection that the belts are centered in the pulleys, and make a final adjusment. According to the shop manual the tightening torque for the tensioner bolt is 45-50Nm (450-500kg.C, 33 -36 lb, ft) The belts tension is 98N (10kg)

12) Turn the car On and check the belts work. No vibration neither sound should be observed.

13)- Install back the oil pan splash cover, the side cover, the wheel, and give a road test.

*Note, in case the AC/alternator pulley nut holder is hard to release, please check the question below yours. In my case I had to remove this nut and replace it, my case is maybe one in a million, but probably can happen to you as well.I'll hope not.

My regards.
