    Default Quick LS4 Belt Removal

    Props to whoever posted it on GMLS4.com i cant remeber the picture but there damn sure isnt a writeup anyway it goes as follows

    No need to remove the wheel at all just crank the steering wheel to the right

    use a 4' hose clamp bend it like so



    Use a 8 mm socket and ratchet and start tightening it down eventually it will conform around the tensioner and voila! you you can take off belt by hand no expensive tools no headaches quick and easy

    So this avoids the issue of the tensioner popping out and dropping quite a bit...I like.

    Glad you posted this before I swapped the PS pump this weekend Stickied.

    I put it in the how to section and left a permanent redirect from where the original thread was. How's that?
