You have a high touge engine so the recomendations are generally for cars that are driven weekly at least. I would change these within ten years apart for they do age from heat

Belt comes off when wet. are there tensioner replacements?

Tensioners can have the pulley or ride wheel replaced or you can replace the entire tensioner. But if your belt hasnt been replaced in a long period of time it might be time for a belt replacement. A tensioner has a limited amount of travel to use to keep tension on the belt. Once the belt has stressed and stretched to a long enough length then the tensioner cannot apply any more tension.

How to change a timing belt on 2003 ferrari 360 spider

The 360 has an access panel behind the seats. To get to the panel the interior trim behind the seats has to be entirely removed. Assuming that you have changed belts before, as an interference engine with tight tolerances, you can not be off one notch without destroying the engine.
the tensioner pulleys should be replaced with the belts. you can spin the bearings to check them but after all the work getting there I would replace them. tension is set through eccentrics.

I have to change my both timing belts on my 308 gtb quatrovalve 1983 ferrari. i live in trinidad, and there are no ferrari mechanics here. is there a step by step procedure for this..

The factory manual has directions, some of it is overkill, but this procedure is an engine out service and requires more shop equipment than most people have, A shop with reasonable equipment can complete the procedure but, one notch off and your engine will be no better than a boat anchor.

Replace the timing belt

It is recommended to replace both the timing belt and the tensioner bearings every 30,000 miles for the models you listed. Other models like the 360 Modena are best replaced every 3 years. The cost (parts and labor) to replace the timing belt on both the Ferrari 308 and 328 will run about $3,000. The Ferrari 348 will cost a bit more at $4,000. No Ferrari is inexpensive to maintain. However, the 308 and 328 will be the least expensive for basic maintenance. Furthermore, if you plan to drive under 2,500 miles per year (or 5,000 miles - 2nd tier), you can insure the car as a collector's vehicle and pay a much, much lower insurance premium.

Electrical problem

Personally, replace the ENTIRE fuse box. This is actually relatively inexpensive ($60) so fear not. Basically the stock unit is lackluster (at best) and a nightmare (at worst). Please accept my apologies for pointing to another chat board, yet it is WELL documented at:
Please believe me, DO NOT buy a new Ferrari fuse box, make your own as seen in the links above. The time and effort are WELL worth it!
