one tip - if you look by the crankshaft pulley to the right you will see a tubular looking shaft about 1" diameter , you will notice you can't get the belt out from under this piece , it has a nut on it , once you take the nut off , you will notice it has a star shaped point on the tip of the stud , it requires a reverse torx socket or wrench to remove the stud , when you get the stud out the tube piece it can be removed , then the belt comes off , replace the belt , now comes the tricky part , fitting that tube spacer back into its spot , it can be difficult , once its in place put the stud back in , and put the nut on and tighten it.

Squealing


My first impression would be the serpentine belt is worn ...specifically it has "glazed" and stretched so it no longer has the ability to effectively grip the drive pulleys it spins. Typically when the serpentine belt loses "traction" it will squeal as it slips on the metal pulleys of the accessories it is designed to operate. There also may be a problem with the the tensioner ...a device used to keep proper tension on the serpentine belt. This is an easy and relatively inexpensive repair ...probably cost between $100 and $200 ...depending on whether the tensioner needs replacing.
You really need to get this fixed. If the serpentine belt fails ...it breaks or comes apart ...you will lose power steering and the water pump as the two critical accessories the belt operates. Obviously the loss of power steering can make the car difficult to drive and the loss of the water pump will cause an engine overheat condition fairly quickly. The A/C and alternator will also drop off line but these aren't as critical as the steering and water pump.

There is a tensioner pulley attached to an arm.
Release the tension on the belt by undoing the pulley arm bolt, the belt will have enough slack to slide off the pulleys.
To put it back on, you find the diagram on the radiator guard or under the hood.

Need to replace serpentine belt on 96 pontiac bonneville don't have diagram on how to put it on pulleys, and motor mounts are in the way how do i do it?


On Bonnevilles (1996 SE ), the belt is routed around the front engine mount to get to the air conditioner accessory. Once you turn the tensioner counter-clockwise using I believe 5/8" socket with a 1/2" drive breaker bar, so you have good leverage, you can remove the belt from the accessories. The front engine mount has three legs that connect to the front of the engine (on the passenger side of the car). You have to unscrew the lowest of the three mounting points (easiest done from the under side of the car, with the plastic shielding moved out of the way), which is right next to the crankshaft pully. Then there is a round tube spacer in between the engine block and this leg of the engine mount that you take out, and you can pull the belt out through there.

I Started my car an my serpentine belt poped off and seems loose.


You may need to take it to a shop or have someone replace the tensioner for you as that ca be the only reason as to why your belt came loose unless the belt snapped in which case you need to replace the belt good luck
