  2. Remove the drive belt.

  1. Move the auto-tensioner within its limit with a wrench in the direction shown. Check that the auto-tensioner moves smoothly and without any abnormal noise. If the tensioner does not move smoothly, or you hear abnormal noise, replace the auto-tensioner.

  1. Remove the auto-tensioner.

  1. Clamp the auto-tensioner (A) by using two 8 mm bolts (B) and a vise (C) as shown. Do not clamp the auto-tensioner itself.
