Approaching 100k miles and think the belts should be replaced as PM.
Any tips on doing this? Tools for fan removal? I would think worth replacing tensioner pulley and idler pulleys at same time?

Check your belts and if they look ok I would address if/when your water pump or front crossover needs replacing. FWIW you can replace serpentine belt, tensioner, pulleys without touching the secondary stretch drive belt ( a pita to install) or removing the fan.

Fan removal requires a 36 mm wrench and a box end wrench to hold the crank (I used a 57 mm wrench) - These both came in a kit I rented from O'Rileys.

Fans reverse threaded, but other than that its super easy to remove.

Ha!
All done last summer apart from the belts. However will have a look to see if showing wear.
Are idler pulleys prone to self destruction? Had that happen on my Saab 93. Known weak point on that vehicle.

No idea. My idler pulley and tensioner seemed fine on my 2010 at 196k kms so I left it. The stretch belt is a pain. You can use a pry bar or the specific tool for it.
