Serpentine belt replacement for YD25

Recommended Posts

Hi there!


New member here. I've got a British import R51 with a manual transmission YD25. I'm getting a bit of squealing from the serpentine belt when I start the engine from cold, and have noticed that the power steering pump seems to be making some squealing noises too. I imagine I'll need to replace the serpentine belt, but can't seem to find a link to information on the process of changing this belt; everything seems to be written about petrol/gas engines. Does anyone have a link to resources on how to go about changing this?? Thanks in advance.

Since you have had no response, I will take a stab at it. I don't know the particulars of that engine, but the serpentine belt will have a tensioner on it somewhere. If you can locate that, then put a socket and breaker bar on the pulley bolt head and push it away from the belt to reduce belt tension. Hold the breaker there while popping the belt off with the other hand.
