    Crawl under front of vehicle. Unclip small section of radiator shroud at the bottom (straight piece around 50mm wide) & remove.
    Place 19mm socket on driver with extension handle on the lug nut on tensioner. Apply pressure towards passenger side of vehicle.
    With tension off the belt slide it off the Aircon Pully & remove.
    Remove top bolt (12mm). Remove bottom bolt (17mm). Remove tensioner.

    Reverse the process to fit new tensioner & fit belt.
    Great thanks VK2FMIA that sounds not too hard, I might give it a go myself. Thanks for the useful write up.

    No prob, the rattle might just be your belt, I remember just changing my belt the first time & the noise stopped. Just remember which way the belt goes on.

    I do it the same way as VK2 says - except I use a 19mm ring spanner to take the tension off the belt. I use a ring spanner so that I can put the hook end of a ratchet strap in the other end of the spanner, wrap the strap around the passenger side wheel, and then using the ratchet strap reduce the tension and remove the belt without getting my fingers caught. When you do it with sockets it helps if you have three arms!

    If that doesn't work - swap your rattle for a dummy and then spit it out!

    Hey thanks Bill, good tip which I may yet use.

    So this is what I'm after:

    I did the same thing but never said anything because I thought I was being a wimp using the ratchet strap. Feel much better knowing someone else did the same thing.

    Got around to doing this today.

    Took off the belt and there was slience. Put the belt back on and there was still no squeeks. It was a good exercise as I now know how to replace the drive belt.

    Thanks VK2 for the drive belt image you posted. I did try & put the belt back on the wrong way, so I got your pic out and it saw me good.

    Got around to changing the tensioner & belt last weekend. I'm no mechanic, but this wasn't a huge job, pretty simple actually.

    I undid the 4 bolts that hold the plastic splash guard under the radiator so I could more easily reach up to the tensioner to get to it and that was all. Took me about 30 - 40 minutes, maybe even less, for me that's about 10 minutes for someone who knows what they're doing.

    It was a worthwhile experience as now I know how to do it should I need to when I'm in the middle of nowhere.

    Thanks everyone for your help.
