Replace a serpintine belt on a 1997 Buick Park Avenue

I have a diagram of how the serpintine belt is to be wound around everything, but I don't see how to remove it. It looks like the motor mount is in the way, and would have to be romoved. Surely there is a more simple way of taking it completely off and putting the new one back on. I can take the belt loose from the tension pulley, but I need to remove and replace the belt.

Your car requires you to removed the motor mount to replace the belt. The best way to do it is to place a piece of wood on a small jack and jack up on the engine oil pan. Then removed the motor mount and replace the belt. There is no other way to do it.

At the top of the engine there is a pulley that appears to go to nothing. This is a tensioner pulley. Take a wrech to the bolt on the front of the pulley and pull it towards the inside path of the belt. After dropping about 1 inch, you should be able to lift the belt off and out.

To replace the serpentine belt on a V6 3800 you must jack up the motor and remove a motor mount. You must then use a breaker bar with a socket (13/64") and pull it toward the front of the car to release the belt tensioner. Put the new belt on, tighten it, put the mount back on, and lower the jack.
Driving without a belt can cause the motor to overheat, will cut power steering, and will not recharge the battery, so you should probably get a tow
Good Luck
