RE: 1390 fan belt problem

second cambs there, no matter what way the bolts are in they seem the wrong way :) its a hassle of a job but you can slip the belt through the gap by using the method cambs suggested, while your at it pop a spare one in there for next time and have it around the fan first to save taking that off
