Anyone else have a problem using the belt tensioner 3/8 racket hole on the 03 sprinter. I can't fit my ratchet into the hole for some reason.

It may be a 1/2" ratchet to loosen the tensioner, or rotate the ratchet 10 degrees.

I just replace my serp belt on my 2006. I used a 17 mm socket, 12 pt. It fits on the star fitting on my tensioner.

Ya only thing that works for me is a 12pt. 17mm 1/2inch socket.
