I'm not sure what happened to my instructions, the paper looked a little water damaged. Luckily Gates had a video on YouTube on how to use this properly. I followed the instructions and this thing worked perfectly, just as described, and had no problems the first time trying to do it. Value, can't complain at all for the the price Rally Sport Direct has it for. Quality, it does 'feel' cheap, but considering at home use, it will last a long time. For commercial use, I would prefer to find a heavier duty tool set that's similar for everyday use and constant belt changes, but even if that's not available, the price point on this tool still makes it worth it since it can easily be purchased again and replaced in my box.
I didnt even use this to put the belt back on. It seemed a little flimsy using tie straps to hold it on, so i just rotated the pulley while forcing the best on. It didnt stretch my belt out.
The kit works fine. Keep in mind, if you are going to install the grim speed lightweight pully, you need to buy their bracket adapter piece in addition to this kit
If the A/C stretch belt can be installed on a 2008+ without this tool, I can't imagine how.
I gave the surfaces that contact the pulley a little deburr with emery cloth. Then just a light rub down with WD40 to help with the friction on install. Worked fine.

Q: Will this fit? vickylyles11 years agoI bought the Perrin Lightweight pulley but the Gates tool does not work on it since there is no bolt holes in it. I wanted to ask if this tool will work on that pulley before I order it. If not I will have to return that pulley and order yours so I can use my gates tool.
