Is there a DIY for replacing the belts, tensioners and water pump?

Coming up on 75k miles so I'm looking to do DCT fluid, diff fluid, belts, tensioners, and water pump. Is there anything else I should be doing?

Check for the install DIY of performance pulleys. It should detail most of what you would need to do for the parts you want to replace.

Any hints? The water pump/alternator belt tensioner looks like its behind the water pump pulley. Do the radiator hoses need to come off?

No the idler puller needs to be taken off to get that belt. Basically take out the bolt and the pulley will come out vertically with the belt. Reinstall the same way with the belt on. Like the tech said, watch the DIY videos on YouTube for performance pulleys. It's the same steps to replace the belt
