Question about Mercedes-Benz 190-Class
I do have a diagram for you. Email me at email@example.com (NO CHARGE!!) Most of us who have worked on any Mercedes though will tell you, due to the brittle nature of the tensioning rod that hooks to the back of the tensioner and its propencity to break REALLY EASY, we don't ever touch it. It starts by removing the fan shroud by rotating it and removing. Next, by the power steering pump, pull up on the belt there until you have room to pull it off. You will see the tensioner allow for movement. Remove the belt and follow the diagram to install the new one. NOW, one of the biggest things I saw when I worked on these, was the owner complaining about a squeek sometimes even on a new belt. When you install this belt, find the writing and hold it in your hand and read it like you are holding a book in your hand. Install it then. I have argued this idea and then the German I worked for said " just put the belt on the way I said!". This was on an old belt and I thought we would end up replacing a pulley of some sort..... noise went away!! Ever since I have been able to prove this on any engine with a serpentine belt. Spread the knowledge!!
