Remove drive belt from supercharger.
Fit 1/2 inch square drive ratchet or bar into square aperture on front face of tensioner. Using bar, turn tensioner assembly to the right (viewed from front) against spring tension.
Whilst holding the tensioner against spring tension, remove drive belt from tensioner pulley. Release tensioner slowly and remove bar.
Disconnect belt from other pulleys and remove it from rear of tensioner.

NOTE: Ensure that belt is correctly and squarely located on each pulley. Check belt wear indicator marks to confirm that drive belt is within limits. Installation is a reversal of the removal procedure.

CAUTION: When releasing the belt tension, never apply any torque in a clockwise direction to the pulley center bolt (left hand thread) as it could subsequently loosen. Remove the drive belt from the accessory drive. Use a spanner e.g. Churchill JD-230 or Snap On XDHM 1415, on the center bolt of the belt tensioner idler pulley, to turn the adjuster assembly to the left, viewed from the front, against spring tension. Whilst holding the tensioner against spring tension, remove the drive belt from the generator pulley. Release the tensioner slowly and remove the spanner. Disconnect the belt from the other pulleys, as necessary.
Installation

Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Ensure that the belt is correctly and squarely located on each pulley.
Refit the supercharger drive belt.
