T-belt changing troubles

Any recommendation to prevent this from happening or how to deal with it?
Thanks to Frag and others on suggestions: removing the radiator is easy and quick and makes MUCH more room for work. Also his method of removing crankshaft pulley bolt (putting the car in 5th gear and standing in brakes) worked great.

Other alternatives? If the nut breaks loose from the plastic, I've heated the bolt/nut with a soldering gun. This melts the plastic and allows nut to be 'welded' back into the rear cover.
For those where the nut isn't going back in, I've used a zip tie instead of a bolt. The timing belt cover is to keep rocks and the like out, and a zip tie can accomplish this.
