I've a cooper, and have had a squeeky belt for the last month or so when i start the engine and i have tried to fix it myself.
The Haynes manual recommend dropping the engine to get at the belt tensioner with a 3/8" drive ratchet, however this seems pretty darastic, so i tried the above method. I took the wheel well off , but couldn't move the tensioner. Are there any additional suggestions?
Otherwise its off to the garage!
