    I need some advice please!! I 'm swapping my b16 into my 95 hatch and when putting my timing belt back on the tensioner froze and the bolt snapped in half. Any suggestions anyone???? Any info would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    THere is no other advice except take the half of the bolt left in the motor out and get your self a new tensioner assembly. If there is tension on the belt at the moment, pry the belt off and then work on the tensioner. Its not a big deal, you can do it big guy! haha
