A/C stretch belt install

A/C stretch belt install in 3 minutes or less without any specialty tools.
BE SURE TO PUT THE BELT BEHIND THE CRANK PULLEY THEN PUT IT ON THE A/C PULLEY.
That is the main trick.
Once you start the belt on the crank pulley use one hand to hold the belt into the grooves while rotating the engine over to walk the belt on.
Sorry for the crudeness of the video. Was no practice run and I've never put a stretch belt onto a stock pulley. I've always had an UDP which is a touch easier and I've never had a belt not stay in place while walking it onto the crank pulley which I blame the stock pulley size for that.
Anyway this is how I've always done it without zipties.

Good video, thanks for the contribution!

I wish more people would do things like this. I've considered even doing it myself

I considered for years. I just said F it and spent $49 on a belt and done it with the car still hot ��
It helped me take my time and show the process as best as I could do it.
