    I fitted a new belt on my 2.2DTI last week. To gain access I lifted the driver side with the Jack and put it on a axle stand. then removed the bottom plastic dirt gaurd 6 or so star screws. then I dropped the dirt gaurd from the wheel arch only one star screw. I think I had full lock on the steering to give more room before starting.
    To gain access from the top remove your air box.
    there is one star bolt holding it at the bottom and one in the middle but you will need the socket to fit, e14 and the next size up. I needed to grind two flats on the e14 socket with my bench grinder so I could get a spanner on to slacken it off. There is no room for a ratchet.
    To put it back on is the reverse. When putting the belt on you will need to put a spanner on the nut that is next main wheel on the tensioner and use it as a leaver to move the wheel to allow enough slack/room to get your belt on. I hope this helps?
