Fan Belts Replacement

I have a 94 D90. The belts have been squealing and I noticed the AC and Power Steering Belts are both loose. In addition, they both look to be cracking and old.
1. Can I buy these belts at the local Kragen/Autozone?
2. How difficult is it to change all the belts (AC, Power Steering, Alternator, and Water Pump)?
3. What is a fair quote for a shop to do all the work for me?
4. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I got a new set of belts at NAPA, they had them all in stock.

But the power steering belt on mine is a seriously major pain in the ass, I have to basically remove the power steering pump to get the belt off since it's a double pully setup.

What do you think is a fair price to replace all four belts and labor?

Maybe $50 for the belts and maybe an hours labor.

For me the biggest pain in the arse was finding out that my water pump was going!!

I got my belts from NAPA. They work fine.... But they ARE a different size than OEM! It's only slight and they will work.

I ended up taking the pulley off the PS pump to get the belt on.

Cheers,

I never used the OEM belts at all, do they go on/come off without dismounting the pump?

I believe so... I had already purchased the Napa set, so I just used 'em. A friend of mine, who's helped me out with a TON of issues on my D90 and has been working on LRs for I would say more than 40 years... The Napa belts are a bit more deep than the OEM (probably due to the "teeth"). All I know... It was a bitch trying to replace all my belts.

All in all, at least for me, I didn't want to spend a bajillion dollars on friggin belts. Napa's will work.
