I've just ordered a new serpentine belt for our '06, and I'm wondering if there are any special tricks to putting one in. I've done the belt in my Tacoma, and it was pretty straightforward.

I looked for a walkthrough thread, but didn't find one. Anyone got any advice?

Thanks :)

I had squeeling from the engine when starting the engine, seemed to be the V-belt slipping. I have an 06' 50 K.

Purchased a new belt and changed it last week. Easy fix, but 2 pars of hands needed for this in my case. One person to pull the wrench to release the tension (on the tension wheel (bolt) clockwise) one to put the new belt on. Was a bit tricky to get it over the last pulley otherwise (with one hand only).

10 min in all. no squeeling anymore :) (no visible damage on the old belt, just old I guess....)
