Re: any one have trouble changing belts? looks hard to reach

The number indicates the length, I'd say it's important to get the right one. Order from your dealership.
As for replacing them, I pulled my fan shroud out and removed the fan, makes it a lot easier, but I'm told it can be done without doing so. The 2 longer belts are held by tensioners, the bolt through each tensioner hold everything in place, and a bolt leading down to the tensioner is what adjusts them. The alternator belt has the locking bolt and adjusting bolt on its bracket.
