Question about 1996 Subaru Legacy
1996 Subaru Legacy. Two belts, one goes to power steering and the other goes to the alternator. They both go to a balancer. Balancer became "loose" and both belts came off. I need to tighter the balancer and I need to get the belts back on. What tools do I need to accomplish this and any "suggestions" as to how I manipulate the belts on?
I assume you got this fixed by now? To tighten the harmonic balancer, this is the way I do it: under the intake manifold towd the back of the engine there is a black plug or a hole where a black plug used to be that is an access window to the torque converter bolts. Rotate the crank over with a breaker bar and socket until you see a hole through the flywheel, this is where i wedge a large screwdriver into to hold the crank in place and tighten the balancer bolt with a breaker bar and socket. If you do have a torque wrench the spec is 70-80 ft-lbs on the 2.2 and 90-100 on the 2.5 model
