Well, I finally did my own belt, Dr Pulley Slider and shoes replacements today.
Not hard, but nerve wracking knowing that if I do it wrong and can't fix it right, it's a long road to San Francisco. Anyway, I'll find out tomorrow if everything runs fine since I had a dinner to attend and it went late.
Question though. I wanted to change out the spark plugs as well, and when I took off the little cover to access the plugs, I couldn't get the wires off the plugs. They just won't budge. I'm used to just a firm pull and it's off. These are feeling like there's a trick to squeeze somewhere to cause a release, or unscrew something to release. I checked the wiki, but there's nothing for the 2009 MP3 500. I did a forum search using +'s to get the exact wording, nothing helpful, just seeing that others had changed them fine. SO, what am I missing?
Any advice will be much appreciated.
Special Thanks to BubbaJon for his pictorial for the change! It came in very
handy for me and is a permanent PDF in my files.
