Default 97 Belt Replacement

All in all not bad. Took me a 1/2 hour.

Jacked it up, pulled passenger front tire.
Pulled the shield to see the nut and stud
Using a long extenion loosened nut and got surprised by nut and stud being locked together and coming out at one.
Slid spacer out of the way
Released tension on both and wormed them out.
Wormed new back belt in..put on tensioner
Wormed new front belt in..put on tensioner
Fired it up to ensure they were good.
Put spacer and nut/stud back in
Buttoned up shield
Put tire back on
Put back on ground and go run errands.

A couple of pics to follow.

I could NOW do it in about 30-45 minutes, considering I don't have any air tools.

Anyway, for those who have my experience, just thought I'd pass on that my stud did not come out with the 18mm nut. The stud has a large Torx head (T60 or T70?). Since I did not have any torx sockets, I found that a 8mm socket fit very snug over it and since the stud wasn't in too tight (didn't want to risk stripping that stud head), it came out that way.

FYI.
