It's really not helpful at all.

You have to reference the workshop manual anyways because he did not include any of the torque specs. In that case there is a step by step guide on the pages with the torque specs.

I'm sorry you don't find it useful. While i agree it doesn't any torque spec's, I'm doing my T-belt very soon. I have the workshop manual for all the spec's & steps to do the job but as a "DIYer" not a mechanic I find the little tips & greater detail described in the post helpful in combination with using the manual.

If you'd like to delete it feel free, just thought it would be helpful for anyone like me who have the skills to do the job themselves but don't have the wealth of experience of being a mechanic for a living.

I agree it's pretty helpful for the people who haven't done it before and are learning. The only thing I would advise for people who haven't done it is to torque the tensioner and crank pulley bolt properly. Anyone who's done this a fair few times knows how tight to do it, its a feel thing you pick up over time. Tensioner bolts generally have an acceptable range of torque, unlike head bolts which MUST be to exact specs.
