- Unscrew the frontscrews of the radioplate
- unscrew the screws the left bulhead at the underside
- unscrew the bodymount and shocktower (with shocks unscrewed of he suspension arms)
- unscrew the exhaust mount and push the exhaust upwards
- remove the left bulkhead
- remove the side pulley
- push in the middleshaft so you can pick the C-clip from the shaft at the servo side with a tool.
- remove the middle shaft

regardless, its gonna be alot of work. my best advise for you is too practice taking out the front belt at home rather than at the races. this way, you'll know EXACTLY what to do when it comes time for that belt change.

Also, it would be better using a electronic screw driver like the milwaukee brand. buy the ofna hex bits ( part number: ofna 93119 ) because they are compatable with the milwaukee driver.

Default Screwdriver

Craftsman has a good one for 19.95. It's 3.6 volt and works great.

Wish there was an easier way to swap out the front belt but for now you're gonna have to do some taking apart. Paul D.'s recommendation of using an electronic screwdriver is the best advice in my opinion.

I picked this one up at wallmart about a year ago. Not sure if they still have them but heres a link:

Its small and compact so it fits perfectly in my box and has plenty of power to take apart my car fast if needed. Price is good too...good luck!
