Could you possibly put the year of your bonne in your signature ( you have no sig as of yet).

I am only familiar with the pre 92 Bonnie'* and on those all you have to do is move the rad bottle, and take the tension off the belt and remove and replace.

When your belt is failing, is it actually breaking?? or is something binding, causing it to fall off then getting caught in the other pulleys then breaking???

Depending on what year.. pull one bolt/stud and slide the belt in..

First time out it took me 45 minutes.

S2 SC has a bolt in the torque axis mount that needs to be pulled out as well as a spacer. Then slip the belt in.
