I would like to attempt the repair myself. Is it difficult to replace the tensioner? A mechanic friend looked at my shredded serpentine belt. He said the tensioner needs replaced and it is a bear to do. He's too busy. He owes me some work but so much for that.
So I bought a new belt and a new tensioner unit. The mechanic said being front wheel drive and a hard bolt to remove, the repair will be too much for a woman. What do you think? Can I do it? Should I buy a manual and attempt it or look for another mechanic? Are there any free online repair manuals for a 1994 Saturn.
My Saturn has been very dependable even after being stolen twice and found twice. I really want to keep her. Will this repair be expensive at a shop?
