    Someone help! My gs pulled the same crap as my rs, belt for alternator flew off in rain, since this belt sits behind serpentine belt, is there a Easy way to replace this without having to undo the timing belt/serpentine belt... can’t remember how I fixed this before, think I ended up finding out my timing belt was breaking so I took it all off anyway. Appreciate the advice ahead

    Timing belt does not need to be removed to get to the alternator belt. You will need to remove the A/C belt though.

    If I’m not mistaken the alternator belt runs to the ac compressor, and usually sits behind timing... can’t remember for sure tho

    I changed mine a couple months back. Took a little over 2 hours to do both, even less once you get used to it. Timing belt removal is not required.
