What would cause my serpentine belt to not fit on my buick lesabre custom 2001


Those belts have a tensioner on them. IF the belt is too big then the tensioner might not be retracted. It might be missing. There are idler pulleys too. If you have high miles on the this car, the pulley or the tensioner might be worn. The tensioner also has to be pulled back to have the belt put on.

Do I need to remove motor mount to replace the serpentine belt?


On my 01 LeSabre, changing serpentine belt is a breeze.

Use a 5/8 socket and strong arm on the tensioner pully, rotate towards the back of the car to loose tension on the belt, then just slip the belt off. I was suprised how easy it was to do.

I want to replace the serpentine belt on a 2003 Buick LeSabre Custom with V6. How do I release tension on it?


look for small pulley with a square hole in it then you will have to install a 3/8 ratchet into it and pull in either direction until you see the belt loosen its a spring loaded tensioner so it will return once pressure is relieved, be careful these tensioners are very strong. in some cases they use a bolt and you will have to use a socket to release the tension most tensioners are located towards the center of the belt routing.

How do I change the serpentine belt on a 1998 Buick LeSabre, 3.8


My friend;
Try this;
  1. Check the belt pulley may have attaching tension bolts (Nuts), etc.
  2. Loose the belt pulley attaching tension bolts (Nuts), etc.
  3. Normally there are three bolts & or nuts u need to loose to allow u swivel the pulley side way.
  4. Once loose, swivel the pulley side way.
  5. Mostly, you don't have to remove the bolts & or nuts completely.
  6. You may need to remove other serpentine belt to reach the power steering belt.
  7. Removing those other belts work same as the power steering belts or other belts.
