Well this tension up the power steering pump and the belt. I got my ratchet back there, top bolt. And you’ll see the pump move. So put some pressure on it. Now three quarters of an inch movement along this one of the belt which is the bottom one. And that’s it, we’ll tighten up that belt down here and I'm going to catch this one on the back. Set of spanners is quite good for this sort of work because you can get in at an angle to get things. So, that's that belt tension. If you over tension the belt, you're going to knock the bearings and the water pump is the first thing that will go normally. And then it will be the alternator and lastly the power steering pump. They usually have bearings, plus the running oil. Okay, get in there with that. Looks good. Pull your ratchet out. Press the button in. alright, 10 mil bolt at the top. Don’t forget that. The pulleys are pulling against the bolt ever so slightly so it’s going to require winding out. Usually few rotations will get this job. It’s going to make me wind it all the way in. Right, another bit you can get nice and easy from the top is your pulley bolts. Make sure they're tight as it be, turn your whole engine over, so it’s good. Of course, and then you're done. Wonderful. Timing belt cover. You got to make sure the rubber stays in. it’s got a guide in there for not falling out and get stuck in your timing belt and wrap around it and wound up. So that gets jiggled in at the top. Swap positions, because I remember rightly we have to tweak the bottom part of the cover to get it in properly. There we go. That’s it, I’ll wind the little bolts back in and I think we're ready to spin it out.
