Default Underdrive Pulley

How hard is this to install? Would I be able to install it myself?

not sure what kind of engine you have, but from past experience on my Lancer, it was pretty easy to do. The longest part was removing the front wheel to access the pulley, but it was more of a simple lock the pulley and then remove the 4 bolts, and then re-run the belt. Now ours may be a bit tighter as everything is in the front, but should still be accessable.

Since it is a Challenger forum I don't think you need to take off the wheel Space around the pullies is tight and you have to think about all your tensioners and keeping your timing marks lined up.

yes Mullit.... it is a Chally site, I own a Chally, but from my past experience and since Dodge used the Mitsubishi engine in almost 80% of their cars, I figured I would shed some light on the question.

The front wheel may not have to be removed in this case as the pulleys are in front. But the question wasn't fully defined to what platform motor he's running. If he has the V6, there is sufficient room to get to the pulley from under the car, if it's the bigger blocks, well that tends to be a different ball game. Room is tight and on some forums I have read some members remving the front clip to get to the pulley. I don't think he has to worry too much about marking for timing as it would only be an accessory belt getting swapped out, the underive pulleys I've seen only affects the serp belt that runs acces/alternator.
