    Default z22se alternator belt tensioner

    my alternator belt tensioner has started to squeel on idle so ive been round to a few places to get it sorted,but when the first place quoted me just shy of £200 i nearly fell over,so off i went to a few other places and all quoted around about the same,they recon that the job is an hour and 40 mins to do,so am wondering how hard the job is to do myself is it possible to do it from the wheel arch as theres no way of getting to it from up top without removing loads of bits first,any body able to point me in the right direction

    I've never done one on a vec c, but should be accessible through the wheel arch, pretty straight forward, just take the belt off, unbolt the old one, bolt the new one on, and replace belt!

    Not sure how much will be in the way, try having a look in the drivers side wheel arch, will have to remove some plastic covers no doubt.
