Did you already remove the belt?
I am not sure if you are trying to do w or w/o removing the fan-
But if you pull the fan out and remove the pulley behind the fan- you can remove the belt & relieve the tension-
I vaguely remember removing about two other nuts (in addition to the adjust bolt & locking nut) and that seemed to do the trick- Look around the bracket holding the PS assembly- (I recall it was not as cooperative as the Alternator)
I won't be able to look at my truck until this evening after work-
If I get a good look - I should be able to describe it better
Also- Look at the the section on Timing belt removal- IIRC - FSM suggests to remove the PS assembly in that diagram - you should be able to see which other bolts to loosen- You don't need to remove them just loosen them
Its funny you mention those 7 pc rev. ratcheting wrenches-drabnor said:the best thing you can do is get a set of these.
it makes belt removal/instalation sooooo much easier
Wasn't sure what stage you were in. When I replace my belts- I like to have everything worked out during the removal stage to facilitate the reinstall phase-g8er_h8er said:Phong, I'm just trying to tighten the belt, so the fan has not been removed.
