Hello, I have a 2000 Mercedes slk230....the alternator went bad so I am in the process of replacing it....the only way to rplace it is from underneath the car, so I have it up on jack stands....I am having...


I am not familiar with your exact configuration. The tensioners usually have a molded shape on them for a socket drive on a breaker bar or rachet. You would inset the drive into the molded hole and then put tension on the tool to make the belt loose.

Sometimes a tool is not even needed, as the tensioner may be in a convenient location which allows you to just push down on the tensioner by hand. There is no rule about reassembly either.

Make the last pulley to clear the belt be the easiest to reach. Some people prefer a grooved pulley to be last and some people want to deal with only the non-grooved pulleys so the belt slides on bald surfaces better than grooved surfaces. But if you already have enough play in the belt, it really does not matter.

Another item. Make sure you have a rebuilt or new alternator with the same number of grooves on the pulley. And sometimes you need to keep your own pulley because the replacement will not always have a pulley.

1998 ford taurus spark plugs needing changed. Easiest way to take them out would be helpful. The back plugs are in the back and hard to get to. Thanks


You need more tools.
Different plug sockets,extensions,etc.
On a rare occasion, you can get them from below,if the vehicle was raised up.
I think you just haven't done a lot of transverse engines
I spend $500 a year on tools ,just to keep up.
Over my life time I,am up to about $40,000, and I only spent a few years in auto field professionally

What tools do I need to replace the rear brakes and the rear rotor


There is a cheap brake piston retractor kit they sell at Harbor Freight that helps a great deal, because you have to rotate the pistons in the rear calipers, as you push them back in. That is because the rear brakes also act as parking brakes, so can't be allowed to retract. That is all you really need in the way of tools except for the right socket/torex/allen for the caliper bolts. I don't know that exact size/shape of the bolt heads because they change.
