If it is a transverse (belt facing the tire) then yes the motor mount bracket has to be removed.

Belt is worn out, or tesioner pulley is worn out. Check to see that all your pulleys line up correctly also, that can cause the belt to 'walk' off a pulley.

How do i get to the blinker bulb on the 97 olds 88ls in the fron?

To change the blinker or headlight bulb on an 1997 Oldsmobile 88: Open the hood, remove the plastic cover thing so that you can see the housing for the light. On the back side of the housing there are three clips, remove those (I was able to remove them with just my fingers). Once the clips are removed the whole headlight slides out the front of the car. Now you can easily replace any of the blown bulbs.
