Finally managed to fit my new alternator to my N/A, which was a pain.

I am now struggling with fitting the belt, is this even possible for one person to do?

Any tips, or advice would be greatly received

I am trying to fit it via the wheel arch, so you can only get one arm in there.

I cannot see how you can hold the tensioner back, and fit the belt at the same time?

I always lift the back end. Take away the wheel. Take away the undertray. Then it is quite easy. 

I do it 2 times every year. Before and after the MOT.
