SOURCE: replacing the alternator belt on 2001 kia spectra

Then you don't take anything off. There will be a spring loaded idler that tensions the serpentine belt. Take a socket or long 12 point wrench and attach to the center bolt of the tensioner, then rotate the idler wheel away from the belt, take the belt off. Slowly release the spring tension of the idler.
The 2nd belt should be set up the same way.

SOURCE: removing fuel line from fuel filter

Hi, Fuel filters and some other hose connections on vehicles today use a clip mechanism that is easily released with a small plastic tool. These tools are available in most auto parts stores. They come in a set to accommodate different size hoses, and metal barbs. Simply put the longer end of the tool toward the fitting and press to release. Good Luck!

So on my kia spectra 5 the throw put bearing locks

thats because that type of clutch is a pull type not a push type, to remove the trans first remove the slave cyl then the 14mm nut that holds the fork arm lever its on top of the arm, then remove the arm off of the shaft, now remove the trans, the hard part is reasembly.. because you have to install the release bearing on the trans and snap it into the preasure plate, thats a whole nother story.......

Jake, The metal arm that goes through the side of the trans that presses against the clutch when you push on the petal has to come off and out of the trans. It pivots on a ball type thing. Push it forward off its pivot point and remove the arm.
