Question about 2001 Subaru Legacy
I have a 2001 Subaru Legacy with a bad power steering/alternator belt. I have the replacement belt, but I've never changed one before. Any help & instructions on how to do that on my own?
Trust me it is quite an excercise and not worth doing yourself. With the proper tools, a hoist and a my mate who is a Guru Subaru Mech it took 4 hours. Without having done it before and without the Hoist ( which is wha I was going to do initially ) I'd say you wouldn't get much change out of 8 - 12 hours.

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.

take a look some pullies are spring loaded and it may require a ( not recommend unless stuck) but a pry bar. if spring loaded is the case there should be a tool that you could rent that is use for prying the pulley.
Note: make sure to release slowly so not to damage pulley.
