Default Changing supercharger belt

I did a search but didn't find anything, so perhaps I'm typing in the wrong search ot something.

I want to change my SC belt, picked up a gatorback today. I thought, this is easy, grab teh torex socket, move the tensioner, pull the old belt, drop in the new belt, 5 mins, I'm done. WRONG There is a motor mount that goes threw the belt. Is there a trick I'm not seeing? What needs to be done to change belts? Thanks

The motor mount spacer needs to be moved out of the way enough to slide the old belt off and new one on.

I believe the "trick" is to jack up the car, pull off the passenger side tire, and the splash guard to gain access to the motor mount through the wheel well.

Then, you back out the bolt on the spacer enough to move the spacer so a gap appears big enough to slide the belts off and on.

I think y'all found an easier way than I did. I get an engine lift, drop the motor mount and pull of the PS pulley. From start to finish, it'* about a 4 hour job taking my time. Not something I'd wanna rush.

Just me, but while you in there, I would do both belts

I'm leaning more towards headers, but that will be a while.
