However when you order a belt the only one that comes up is for the setup with the belt tensioner. Nevertheless after half a day of working I have replaced my AC belt for the non AC belt tensioner setup.
did you replace the non tensioner belt without the tool? if so how did you do it. did you loosen the compressor?
