    Replace info for engine drive belt

    With my 997 turbo, getting fed up with a badly squeaky belt.  Belt oil stops it until another rain.Looks like just removing air cleaner assembly gets access to the fabric-drive belt.  Is that correct or is it more complicated??

    No answers on that one, probably because most people here think that if you need to ask, you should be taking it to the shop to get it fixed.

    Not trying to be smartass by saying that so bluntly. Just don't think it's a good idea to start working on a late-model upmarket car without any kind of workshop manual or model-specific knowledge.

    I was just trying to find out how difficult a job it is.  I thought checking thru the Forum would be simplier than asking the dealer folks. Often the sign in guys give wrong info.     Is it simply taking out the air cleaner assembly?  I know with the exhaust, the whole bumper comes off and if a mechanical mess like that is required to put on the fan belt, I will just stay with  the squeaky belt and coat it with belt spray after every rain.  Things lately are not simple and with this belt change even if done at the dealer, I don't want the car half torn apart simply to replace the belt.  I can do the oil spray if that is the case.  In the past I have gotten good mechanical info for many things from this Forum and I thought this was a simple tech-question to answer.
