Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Replacing The Serpentine Belt

Replaced the serpentine belt, under the guise of “while I am in there”. It was quite a hassle, but unfortunately, I will do it again as this belt seems a little short to my liking. The tensioner has ample room to move this way, which is not how I like to see it.

I replaced it with a Dayco 6PK2440 belt if I am not mistaken.

Finally fitted a new serpentine belt tensioner, needed to wait for a Torx T60 bit to be able to take the tension of when you fit the serpentine belt.
