Hi guys, working on replacing my timing belt and accessories, as well as changing out the PCV on my car. Have a couple of questions:

1.) How is the tensioner supposed to be set on our cars? I saw a video that had them rotate the eccentric counter-clockwise until about the 7 o'clock position (but it was an T5 S60, I think), and then I saw a post on here that said to start at the 10 o'clock and rotate clockwise until the "arm" is at the 12 o'clock position. I went with the latter, since it was S60 R specific, but I want to make sure that's correct.

2.) How in the hell did you guys remove the part of the hard PCV hose that wraps around the back of the engine? I can't even get fingers on the banjo bolt, let alone a wrench. Is there an easier way?

Thanks!

Figured out the PCV part; once I realized where the hose hooked to the block, it was a matter of cutting up my hands enough to get the new one on.
