    We have a new to us 98 SL2 on which the serpentine belt just cracked
    and split. We think that the tensioner is fine, but need to replace the
    serpentine belt. The previous owner did not provide a manual, and we
    are stuck. Any advice or instructions would be greatly appreciated.

    Spend $15-20, buy a Haynes or Chilton service manual and follow the

    It is very easy to replace. Jack up the right side of the car. Remove
    the right front wheel. This gives excellent access the to tensioner.
    The old SC2 that I work on doesn't have any kind of wheel well to take
    out. I'm not sure about others. With a 9/16 or 14mm wrench on the bolt
    on the front of the tensioner pully, rotate it clockwise and slip the
    belt off. Work your new belt on the same way. A 20 minute job.
