How hard is it to change the belt on the front of the engine? It looks like you need to lift the engine to get the belt on. Any suggestions to do it myself instead of taking to a shop to have this done. Thanks!

Hi Gas Man, I suggest you use a chain fall or cherry picker to hold the engine while you remove the front engine mount.
