It'* not scary, and it'* not dangerous for a couple minutes.

An L27 belt is a 30-second job including getting the tool out.

If you do replace the belt, consider a GY Gatorback belt. I'm partial to them.

The reason would be to see if it'* something driven by the belt or another thing...say the harmonic balancer for example.

nah..I think Wren has it down to 20 min.

You remove large bolt from center. Use puller to remove balancer. Reinstall new balancer.
