Is your belt tensioner secured with an allen head or a 19mm socket? On a 103, after you loosen the 19mm holding the belt tensioner snug, you loosen a tensioning rod on top of the tensioner with a 13mm socket. The 103 motors use a special 8mm Stahlwille and ft. long metal rod bent slightly at one end for fan removal. Somehow, you got through this.

If you'd like, I can email you the 103 belt replacement process off the MB CD-Rom. Like Chuck, I don't think this process differs much between the 103/104.
