Well it's been about 4.5 years since I originally wrote up the DIY and was time to change the belts again (actually by the look of them, a little past time to do it!). Glad I wrote this up as a reminder of the steps. This time I wasn't able to get the tensioner to detention as the allen head bolt stripped. Ended up having to take the hydraulic tensioner out, drill out the allen bolt, bought a new Grade 12.9 allen bolt at ACE and a new pulley at Advance Auto (twice the price of Bav Auto, had I only known as I was there yesterday :bang head and got everything back together.
