    "Last weekend the alternator belt on my 2001 Mercruiser snapped. I bought a new one to change, however I realize that the belt must go through the engine mount, is this real or what? Is there any other way to get the belt through without undoing the engine monut? Or do I REALLY have to unbolt the mount? If yes, how do I do it without the engine colapsing!!!! Please help, I have promised my 6 year old daughter that I would get it fixed and came to find out is a little trickier than I thought."
