    Why not bringing the car to the dealer?

    Re: 996 polyrib belt

    save extra cash, and I like to work on the car myself,its fun my friend is a porsche tech at newport beach porsche and he is teaching me everything that i need to know on a 996, but happens to be on vacation at the time and wanted to change this myself.

    Re: 996 polyrib belt

    The polyrib belt is a snap to change on a 996 C2/4 engine. My personal experience is with a '99 C4. Here's what I wrote about the process:
    Don't know if I mentioned my experience changing the PolyRib (serpentine) belt on my '99 C4. Bottom line=it was easy. Just get the air filter box out and it's all before you. One kink was that all the doc said that you need a 27mm socket on a breaker bar on the nut in the center of the tensioner/idler pully to 'relax' it's tension so as to unlace the belt from any other one of it's pulleys. Turns out that, on my car at least, it's not a 27mm nut, but a 24mm nut. Well, I've never had to turn a 24mm nut/bolt before so I don't have that socket.......but, found that an 15/16ths" fits just fine. Use the socket on the idler hold-on nut and turn it to relieve pressure on the belt. Unlace it from the rest of the driven parts. Reverse to install the new one. Advice...if you don't have the manual with the belt diagram, draw yourself a pic of the belt route before you remove the old one. Helps to have a friend do the lever while you lace in the new belt.
