There should be a label under the hood that shows the pattern and You Tube has lots of videos by brand and year that show the actual process. Process if done correctly is to hold the spring loaded auto belt tension unit back (mine you just insert the head of a 3/8 ratchet and pull it back, move the belt into position and back the tension off, smooth on belt to smooth on pulley and grooved part of belt to groved parts on the other pulley.

Try You Tube first and you will get the idea, easier with a second person to help, I recently did mine alone outside with a temperature of 14 degrees.

If the belt came off for no reason inspect the tension unit.

97 Buick Lasabre Serpentine belt-Remove front passenger wheel & access panel behind the wheel. Find the bottom of the crankshaft and the belt through the wheel well. Find the point where the lower engine mount bracket is attached to the engine. Remove the nut and then the stud/bolt. Remove the spacer that was on the stud. Record the routing of the belt and then remove it. Remember how the belt came out so know how to put the new one in. Install the new belt and check the routing. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How do I put the serpentine belt back on a 1998 saturn sl2 after I have installed a new alternator


there is a little stick man illustration sticker under the hood showing how to release belt tension by moving the tensioner arm. if the serpentine belt is still on the lower pulley then put the belt on everything except the tensioner, then move the tensioner arm as needed, put the belt in there and release the tensioner arm. most likely going to need two people to do this.

if the belt has come off the lower pulley then you are going to have to remove the service panel behind the right front wheel and put the belt back on lower pulley, then do as above described. this would be a great time to put a new tensioner, a new serpentine belt, and a new "dog bone" motor mount on as it will all be right there to work on with that service panel out.

Need directions to put on a serpentine belt


All you need is a pry-bar about 24" long that could reach as far as the idler (towards the passenger wall within the engine compartment). The idler is the one that maintains the tension for the serpentine belt during operation. Next is to insert it on the back of the idler (note that there is a slot for it to go and lift down towards you. Your serpentine belt would become loose then your can remove the belt.

DO NOT DO THIS WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING,

The serpentine belt came off while driving. Any solutions? How does the serpentine belt need to look to go back on? Do you have a diagram?


If the serpentine belt came off while driving you need to check all of your pulleys. The most common cause is a belt tensioner. If you have never put a belt on you may need to install a new one anyways.
