Default 1998 serpintine belt

I need to change my belt on my 1998 non-supercharged. It looks like I have to take the motor mount off. Is this the case or am I missing something simple in there?

Pull the wheel and splash shield. Then looking at the bottom of the mount, pull the bottom bolt and the spacer behind that. This allows you to slide belts in and out. w/o taking the mount off completely.

Wait, non supercharged, that don't go threw the motor mount, does it? If so, then ya, the lower front bolt is a stud, remove that nut, then the stud and knock out the spacer. Be careful, the crank sensor is right there.

Non supercharged has the same accessory belt path as a supercharged. Right through the mount.

Guess I never paid attention. Always change it at the same time as the SC belt.
