it may not even be the belt, it may be a pully, but changing it is pretty stright forward. I have done it maybe about 5 times in the last few days, put a 1/2 ratchet in the ten pully and pop the belt off, then when the belt is free take the line for the coolant off pull the belt on and put the time back on, take of slowly because there is coolant in there and it will pour out.

I always use Goodyear Gatorback belts, they never squeal. You will have to pull a radiator hose off somewhere if it is going thru the belt. Just follow the link and read the posts (only 4), it will solve your problem with the upper radiator hose.

changing serpentine belt...

while you are at the autoparts store, buy the hose for dual atls and you wont have to worry about that hose ever again

put a little dielectric grease on the belt, believe it or not it works great, a lot of times a brand new belt will squeel a little bit, just put a bit on 4-5 different spots on the belt front and back, if it still squeals, its probably a pulley, we do it at the dealer all of te time

Early 99 F-250 ZF6 rclb. 6637 filter and 4in exhaust is on the way.

NAPA part #9066 goes around the belt
