STS isnt exactly on the ball with this one. Granted it was a high quality belt...BUT IT WAS THE WRONG F'IN SIZE. considering the tensioner has alot of room, you would think they would distibute a belt that would work. But noooooo....i get a belt that is still loose with the tensioner all the way. had to go buy another 25 dollar belt that was smaller 715k6 i believe was the size. so there goes the discount we supposedly got...I wonder if theyll give me back the money they paid for the belt?????

So how hard was it to install... I'm thinking about trying to do it tonight, but I don't want to spend all night doing it, are the instructions good enough, or are there some tips that you guys could give me... maybe a mini how-to. Thanks,

i can tell a lil. Not huge but theres a difference.

oh and you may need to have another wrench or a helper when loosening the crank pulley...it tends to turn the engine before loosening. Also the new alt pulley will have less room for a wrench to tighten.

Woo Hoo!!! I got mine on tonight... I think it is pretty sweet. Not too tough of an install, only took about an hour, and I've never even changed my belt before. I didn't have all the right tools, so I ended up having to buy them (t50 torx socket and 24mm open end), but once I got them it was fairly easy. I agree, the hardest part was turning the crank bolt.
