If everything is loose it might just be binding in the carrier as its quite a tight fit some gentle leverage (be careful the'res some fragile vents on it) in a strong place like the pulley might shift it perhaps with some penetrating oil where it sits in the carrier, or a ...

Re: Fan belt replacement

It's at the bottom of the alternator and acts as the pivot. It is a bit tucked away but you can get a socket on it. I think it screws directly into the carrier so you don't have to worry about holding the other end

Re: Tow Bar and Rear Exhaust Box

Are we talking about a Granvia or a Hiace here - I'm not sure if the exhaust systems are the same - so the fitter might be right. It might be possible to reposition the silencer box slightly differently by using longer or shorter rubber hanging mounts. Unfortunately the exhaust sections bolt togethe...

Re: bigger alloys

16" tyres with a 60 profile would be pretty much the same rolling radius as the stock 215/70 x 15 - so gearing and speedo accuracy would be unaffected.

If the wheels are wide enough 225's fill the arches nicely and don't foul anything
