The battorangs post was a batman joke - accessory belt for tools. Thanks for replies. Any ideas on labor? I don't wanna have to the shop!

Invest in a Haynes manual (not as good as a Bentley but much cheaper) and follow the guide. This is a very simple operation

Don't know why your stressing... ITS A BELT! Like, beside getting the oil changed, its one of the most benign operations a car must endure. You make it sound like your mechanic is gonna try to pull on over on u.... its a belt. Goto a mechanic and have him put a new one on in 5 minutes. Its not a huge deal, don't make it one... have you A/c Belt, Fan belt and power steering belts all replaced at the same time. it will cost....


*gasp*




...
...




no more then 100 bucks. I got mine done at the local good year. You can do it yourself, yes, but it sounds like you must not have very much experiance with cars :-P. and when I tried to do the shop provided the wrong belts, online u have to pay shipping and wait for them, just goto a shop. the belts should be no more then 20$ each, and labor will prolly be like 20$, in my case, 20$ is worth the hassle.
