Default Timing Belt Replacement

Recently,I was grazing on Youtube, and came across a clip about replacing a timing belt. Simple, but effective way if you are only replacing the belt and not touching the tensioner or the water pump etc.

The guy had a box cutter knife, and he left the old belt on the car. He made a slit in the middle of the belt between the camshaft pulleys. He rotated the engine, extending the slit until eventually he had the entire belt cut into 2 parallel pieces. He then removed the front half of the belt, leaving the rear half still in place. He then fitted the new belt onto the front of the pulleys, idlers etc and then cut the old belt and slid it off. So simple, yet effective. The new belt may be a bit difficult to fit (not having been stretched or worn), but it would be worth a try. Make sure that before you cut the old belt off, the crank is at TDC and all the cams are at their marked positions.

Sorry, I cannot remember the clip title. If anyone else has seen this and remembers, maybe they can post the title here?
