Drive Belt Replacement
Has anyone messed with their drive belt or tensioner? I need to replace mine due to them being faulty. I tried the stealership route with the warranty and all, but my warranty just expired... Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

just take some kind of pry bar, the tensioner is towards the back, and just get it in a good position to push up or down (i forget which way i did it) and the belt will come off easily, not hard at all.

Thanks, I was actually able to call in a favor at a stealership in Jax to get the work done as a TSB. It really pissed me off that Toyota will admit to faulty parts, but only if the customer is aware of these TSB's.
