14mm. use a deep socket or a really short extension and pop off the cap over the bolt on the lower t-belt cover. when putting it back on don't torque it too much. i think its supposed to be 38-40ftlbs. check a book for torque specs.

thank you. oh and im also changing my cam gear to a Aem adjustable. so i need to take it off.

that sounds like if it got off a bit it would fuck my shit up.

ive taken the cap off already but what it feels like is the socket is to big to fit into the hole no matter what i do i cant get it to get around the bolt. i'll toy with it a little longer.

its easier if you take the lower cover off, but if you use a thin walled 14mm socket, you can get it on there without removing the lower cover.

alright, yeah because its a tight fit in my eg. im gonna try it with a thin walled socket then. if i cant get it i'll just take my bottom cover off.

oh and i have to get to the tensioner because the belt loosened its self up after some shit happened so its loose enough to get off just not put back on. also i dont want the chance of cross threading my camshaft.

thanks guys
