Not too bad.....first car I've ever had where you had to go through the wheel well and under the hood to get the new one routed properly.

Long 14mm open end wrench - or "serpentine tool" required. I couldn't fit a socket on mine, because of lack of clearance with the engine compartment rail.

Be sure to make a drawing of the correct routing before proceeding with removal - there's no diagram of proper routing under the hood like there is on domestics!

Correct way to loosen the tensioner is to crank the wrench towards the front of the car - meaning the tensioner pulley nut is threaded normally.
