Default TIMING BELT HARD TO GET ON

I changed the water pump on my 03 pt cruiser 2.4l manual transmission. I am at the point where I'm putting on the timing belt. I can't get it over the tension pulley. Any ideas?

You'd need to retract the pulley- remove the 'tension'!

It's easier to get a belt over a big pulley than a small one- so slide 'er on 'em all incrementally.

Sorry for not being intimate with each tensioner, 99% of my experience is on the old Neon hydraulic tensioner.
