use a 10mm socket to remove air intake box.
Use a 12mm socket to remove the Vacuum canister and place it to the side.
Use a 14mm socket and place it on the tensioner bolt.
Use a breaker bar to pull tensioner towards you do this by standing on the passenger side. I used a strong piece of PVC pipe that I use for a breaker bar AKA the CHEATER BAR. you will also need help to remove the serpentine belt while you hold the tensioner back. the belt will have slack in it to remove it.
Loosen the tensioner bolt by turning clockwise, you may or not have to use a breaker bar to do this step.
Remove pulley and turn upside down on a hard surface take a 5/8 socket and place it on the middle of the bearing
DONT PUT THE SOCKET ON THE BLACK PART OF THE BEARING YOU COULD DAMAGE THE BEARING...
Tap generousley with a hammer or malet evenly. your bearing should drop right out.
Take the new bearing and flip pulley over use same procedure as step 6 to seat the new bearing
Put Pulley back on the teniosner and turn counter clockwise to tighten you may need to get under the car the get some room to tighten
Replace Belt. Be sure to properly set belt in all grooves on the pulley. Pull tensionser to make slack to replace belt again it helps to have extra hands to assist with the belt.
Replace the vacuum canister and intake box with all screws.
Turn car on and check your work.
