Question about 2004 Land Rover Discovery
Remove the upper fanshroud, it unclips then pull upwards to remove. Remove the fan from the waterpump with a fan wrench. Also becareful not to puncture the radiator. Then remove A/C compressor pulley(some cars have the ACE pump mounted next to A/C compressor which uses the same cover) cover to completely expose the belt routing. Be careful removing the 10mm bolts. They bolt through two pedastals and often fall. So you have to hold the bolt,cover, and pedastals. There's two bolts holding the cover. This next step is important especially if your car is missng the belt diagram. Draw the belt routing on a piece of paper. Then remove beltension at the tensioner. Install belt around all the pulleys in the diagram except the alternator. Use the same step to install belt on alternator pulley which is always the last pulley to fit belt onto. Then reverse procedure and tighten all bolts.

Actually you don't have to do all of that. I just replaced one from the top. On the passenger side of the engine where the belt is, you will see the tensioner in the middle. Using a larger breaker bar with the socket that fits the bolt in the middle of the wheel, force the tensioner toward the front of the car to release pressure to remove the belt. I think it was a 15mm but can't remember for sure. I do know they are all metric sizes on that engine. The tricky part is to remember how the belt is routed. If you forget, see the diagram below. There isn't much room to work, but I'm proof that it is possible. When putting the new best on, route all pulleys and leave the alternator for last since it's right on top and easy to get to. Good luck and be patient. It's doable.
