Replacing belts on M117

The belts on my 85 500SEL are beginning to whine. Some are in worse condition than others. I plan to replace them all the low-tech DIY way by making marks on the adjustable brackets, replacing two at a time, and using the old thumb pressure gauge to get good tension.

Does anybody want to chime in about do's and/or don'ts for what should be a simple job.

As always - thanks in advance for any words of wisdom.
