Use a long wrench on the tensioner pully nut (located in the center of the pulley) Move the wrench to removed tension from the idler (this is spring loaded to maintain constant pressure on the belt) once that is done, the belt should be able to slid off the alternator pulley. With the belt removed from the pulleys, you will have to remove the engine mount bracket to be able to replace it. To do this first support the engine, then remove the bracket. You will then be able to remove the serpentine belt. Look under the hood for the belt routing diagram and re-install the belt, followed by the engine mount.

1998 saturn serpentinebelt diagram


I had 4 saturns, 91-01, all of them had a little silver sticker in the engine bay with a belt diagram, also showing how to release tension to remove and replace the belt. further if you note the inside of the belt is ribbed, thus the belt goes around those pulleys which are ribbed, and the smooth back of the belt goes against those pulleys which are not ribbed.

How do you know your serpentine belt on a 2006 nissan altima is going out


Serpentine belts should be replaced every 60k miles. You do not want it breaking while driving down the road. To inspect the belt look at the grooved side of the belt. If you see cracks in the rubber then I would replace it.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Multi-rib belt Removal & Replacement


Check on upper rad shroud or under hood for routing diagram. Depending on what engine, procedure may vary a little. I wouldn't panic on replacing anything other than belt unless you noticed something noisy under hood in last while.
If not up to it, a mechanic should be able to do it for you in a few minutes usually, but won't hurt to ask before, just in case.

Replaced belt tensioner and now the belt is to long


Your complete post does not display. So, I can only assume the rest says your belt is to big or to small. No matter what the case may be you have routed the belt incorrectly on the pulleys. If the tensioner is the same then the belt could not change the length. Rember, the outside smooth side of the serpentine belt rides on the smooth pulley surface and the ribbed pulley rides on the ribbed side of the belt. Look on the radiator cowl or the bottom side of the hood and it should have a routing schematic for you to follow. If it is gone just follow the smooth or ribbed formula above. Good luck.
