Hey anybody here ever replace their powersteering belt? Also does that same belt work off any other of the pullies? When doing my cam install and turning the Crank Pulley to get my car to TDC..I noticed that the powersteering belt is begining to crack...is this a hard swap out? any tips or tricks to make it less of a pain in the butt?
Thanks Guys!

It really is a apain. Espcaily if you have big hands or arms. one of the easiest way to get to it is from under the car. take of the stb if you have one....it will help. just sit and cuss it a bit...it will come off. also dont get advanced poly cog belts. Unless you like the blower whine sound. i think that is what is causing all the racket under my hood.

The large belt up front was easy to change. The small belt further back was impossible to do. I had to bring my car to the dealer for that one.

Don't let people scare you. I put UR pulleys on and replaced both belts at that time. Yes, it is a pain, but it can be done. Just take your time and be patient with it.

For the record, I also replaced my front cover with the engine in the car. It took me and my dad 10 hours and two days. Overall, it wasn't that bad. The reason I bring that up is because numerous people told me that it couldn't be done with the engine in the car.

It is possible, but difficult. IMO, the hardest part was getting to the adjustment bolt. I have largish hands and it was not easy.

Is that the one that is crammed in the back of the engine bay on the passenger's side? It was a pain. We found a good combination of extensions and an air ratchet to work pretty well. I think a universal joint would also come in handy for that one. You'll probably end up loosening/tightening it in about 1/8 turn increments.

I thought it was pretty easy. I got to the adjustment bolt by standing on the passenger side facing the back of the car and reaching in with a small ratchet with my right hand. I couldn't see what I was doing but I could feel the bolt and had room to turn the adjustment knob. You will have to remove the alternator belt first to get the smaller one out.

It's much more difficult to change on the Classic SE-R's that have ABS, like mine. The god damn unit is right in the way of the furthest-back belt. On my Dad's '93.5 G20, the ABS unit is in an entirely different location.
