Today, I left my comfort zone a bit and helped Jimmy (jimmymoo) replace the accessory belts in his beater, an Infiniti QX4. It's interesting how they used a combination of ribbed and v-belts on this particular motor. The tensioning mechanism for the v-belt is very similar to the one used on E30s, but the design is much more durable and accurate, if a bit more time consuming.

Rick also stopped by to pick his car up today.
