    Question HELP. Problem changing altenator

    hi,

    Just trying to change the altenator. I have got the old one out. But having problem to fit the new one. I'm struggling to get the belt on it. I've tried to move the belt tensioner arm, but can't seem to move it much and can't get the belt on. I've got a 2.2 petrol, and when i try and move the arm from below it hardly moves, and when i try and put a spanner on the arm from the top it moves more but not enough.

    What am i doing wrong????? Do i need to remove the tensioner arm altogther????

    Thanks
    Richard

    Sounds simple but just need to push harder lol.

    Easier if someone can lever while you pop belt on

    managed to do it in the end. Saw on another thread that someone used a jack underneath to open the arm. all working now.

    Reading Haynes it looks like it is all done from underneath - @Crich is the man to ask
