I just replaced the serpentine belt on my 2009 rav4 2.5. I just turned right front wheel all the way to the right then I took off small splash shield. next I got 3/8 drive ratchet and 14mm socket and put some mojo on the ratchet and slid belt off alternator pulley. then I went under right fender well and just took belt off other pulleys..to take belt off and put back on. it took me total 30 mins

Nicely done! If only changing the belt on the V6 was that easy!

I read the Haynes manual and seen a few videos .they were helpful in removing and installing the drivebelt.just glad I got it done.it saved me a 130.00 dollars doing it myself:)
