This is the diagram but you should have factory belt diagram sticker is still somewhere under the hood
If not:
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

SOURCE: the hood latch on my

You will have to get under the car , and reach up behind the front grille as far up as the hood latch, and MANUALLY release it. It's tricky but doable. I've done it many times. Hope this helps

SOURCE: 1996 Buick Park Avenue hood latch seized cannot

Most likely the CABLE is seized. Unless the latch is damaged , should be movable, Either on a lift, or by laying on your back, reach your arm up behind the front grille, and manually move the latch. Not hard to do. Hope this helps

The hood lever is stuck inside the car. Tried pushing hood done etc. stuck in an outback town in NT. Need to change the dead battery!

Push hood back down hard,then pull on
hood release hard again.If not work,trace wire
inside as far as you can and get grips or pliers
and pul from as far up the line as you can.If it
opens as it should,you can easily unattache wire
from pull handle put a knot in wire,this will shorten it
so easier to undo next time.Infact you might try that first.
If none work which I doubt,get push to start and drive
to garage.LUCK

Starter motor grinding

This sounds like you will need to remove the starter to be sure...this grinding is usually caused by the spring loaded armature not releasing to retract into the starter after starting...this grinding means the starter is not disengaging from the flywheel...sometimes installing shims to shorten the engagement length works, but on your late model Toyota, this would be unusual...probably will need to replace the starter. Continued driving could cause serious damage to the flywheel, a costly repair...don't wait to repair or replace...the engine and transmission need to be seperated to replace a damaged flywheel. Try the starter first. Hope this helps. You share a famous name with "Harry Morgan" of the MASH TV series:)

Replace rear brake shoes and drums cant get drum back on

You need to adjust the brakes so it will go back in. There is an adjuster with gear and teeth on it. Turn it untill you can fit the drums. Then once in there you still have to adjust it again so it will not be loose otherwise the brakepedal will be too low and the handbrake wont engage enough to hold the car.

Hood release won't release - raising my hood is a two person job. One person inside the cabin to pull and hold release tab while second person lifts hood. How do I tighten (shorten) cable?

It might be sticking, you should have rubber pads that are at the hood corners, make sure they are not missing, and give the latch and hinges some spray lube.

98 corolla interior door handle linkage rod ajustment

The door latch doesn't release when the handle is pulled fully? Firstly, ensure both ends of the rod are attached, which I assume you've done since you're asking about adjustment. To adjust the rod, simply put a little bit of bend in it - effectively shortening the length between the two ends. I would do this with the rod on the door and in position. Pick a spot on the rod where it will not catch things, and just bend it a little by hand. Try the door, and increase the bend until the latch releases.

2000 chevy malibu headlight replacement

To remove the headlight assy, there are two black tabs above the housing that you pull up about an inch and that will release the assy, so you can pull it out and access the bulbs. The bulbs will twist out of the housing. Be sure not to touch the new bulb with your skin. The oil on your fingers will shorten the life of the bulb.

89 ranger manual trans slipping already replace clutch and slave cylinder? still slipping any help?

Manual transmissions do not slip ie. when the gears mesh, there is no slip unless they strip out and make an awful noise and will not pull henceforth.

You probably still have a slipping clutch plate against the flywheel. You need to adjust the clutch petal linkage shaft to allow the pressure plate to be release from the thrust bearing, ie shorten the shaft length.. If you and most likely you do just have the clutch release slave cylinder that releases the clutch when you apply the petal. You need to bleed the slave cylinder of any excess fluid or air that may have entered the line if you opened it at any point. You need to bleed it as you would a break cylinder and this should fix ya.
good luck.
good luck

'96 Ford Explorer hood latch not working

This is not the solution I wanted. My wife was driving to visit our daughter, and the idler pully came apart. She had the vehicle towed to a garage, where they changed the cable, along with repairing the pulley.
I could have fixed it myself, and saved some money, but I didn't get the opportunity.
