Serpentine Belt 96 C280

Hi Group,

Need to change the Serpentine belt on 96 C280. I have not done this procedure before and any detailed help would be greatly appreciated. I have the belt

Take out the fan shroud and mechanical cooling fan. Then release the belt tensioner with a 15mm wrench (don't quote me on the size). Pull out the old one and then route in the new one according to the diagram in the owner's manual.

I changed the belt in my car without removing the fan, so it is possible, but the fan gets in the way and it would probably be easier to take it out if you can, it was a pain working around the fan.

-Good luck.

I paid 50 bucks to have mine changed becaused it looked complacated. The next time I took a rag under the ildler and pulled the belt off the track.... put it back the same way... took all of 3 mins. well may be 10 if you count gojoing my hands. There is a tool that you can buy that works like the shop rag.
