Does anyone have a service guide they could scan the page from or post simple instructions? Just looking at it I can't see how it comes off. I'm sure it's going to be involved. Thanks in advance.

You didn't say specifically what you have to work on, but there are both specific threads in the Writeup section, as well as this one that is quite inclusive:

I need to replace the actual tensioner on my 97. Been lucky to have made it through the winter.

Hopefully, that link will help you - but again, there are TWO tensioners on a supercharged motor... ?

please have a look at the write up Eldo pointed to, and please be aware that those *#&$(@#* plastic elbows (with their o-rings) are now available through NAPA dealers if you are replacing your accessory tensioner and bust yours or the replacement tensioner comes without (but it will take a good counterpoerson to find them)...

You won't need unusual tools or unusual contortions to get the job done.

Albert makes a good point... (note that he's talking about the 'rear' or 'accessory' tensioner.)

This stuff is in the write-ups tab at top, or can just search "tensioner". The link previously posted is for belts & pulley maintenance.
