I just tilted the supercharger to remove the belt. I want to put it back on the right way. I know someone might flame, but honestly it doesn't work with the normal tensioner tools. Is this really a straight forward thing that I'm missing?
Install a tight fitting 15 mm open end wrench to the lug on the rear of the tensioner, and carefully push down (and slightly towards the back of the engine compartment) in order to slowly compress the drive belt tensioner, then slip the belt over the pulley.
