I have a 2019 XRS and I wanted to change out my belt pre-emptively and keep the old one as a backup.

I remember reading that the job was a ton easier with the right tool versus the stock tool Anyone have a recommendation for one? I also kind of remember it was pretty pricey. Not sure if there are cheaper options by now?

the quick change types are not perfect
the long handle makes the job more difficult
if you have a cordless impact the oem works sweet
the evo gizmo for the bolt is also nice
because the oem tool does mark up the helix quite a bit

I just recently got the aftermarket one from Amazon, I’ve used it 3 or 4 times now. It’s way easier and faster then using a penny, I’ve had the penny work itself out before and then is scratched up the helix. I can have the belt off in seconds.
the downfall is it’s bigger so takes up more room be careful when releasing it, I wasn’t paying attention and forgot it had the tension from the clutch spring and it smashed my thumb good! Hurt for 3-4 days. I wish I got one sooner. No issues with

You have a brand new X3 don't you? You tell us. LOL

Can Am shows the same part number for all Years. Driven Open Tool 529000088
lol I'll check it later, I saw in another thread on here they revised the tool someone posted a pic. I can't find it now though.
