SOURCE: How do I replace a Heater Blower motor in a 2003 Pontiac Vibe?

Remove the Glove box. You will then have access to the Blower unit. There are 3 screws that are holding the blow unit in place. You will need a Phillips screw driver and a 1/4 socket. Once you have located the unit remove the 3 screws and the unit will fall straight down. Unplug the wire harness and then reinsert the new Blower Motor. If you purchase an original GM part this makes life much easier, you just screw the 3 screws back into the holes and then plug the wire harness back in and reinstall the glove box. If you use an aftermaket part you will need to do some wire splicing to make it work but it is a 10 to 20 minute job depending on which part you decide to replace the Blower with.

SOURCE: how to install serpantine belt tensioner on 2000 pontiac grand am

Basically, Remove the belt. Then remove the bolt that the tensioner pivots on and remove it. It's fairly easy.You may need to remove the belt pulley to make it easier.
The problem comes as your trying to get to it. If you can't see it well or something is in the way. Like the plastic overflow tank or something like that. Then you will need to remove what is keeping you from getting to the tensioner. I did one on a four cylinder last week. The belt pulley on that one had a left hand thread. The tensioner itself should be right hand thread.
Good luck.

SOURCE: 2005 Pontiac Vibe: when does the timing belt need

No belt. Lucky you. It's a good idea to have someone check the timing chain at 100k and every 20k thereafter. If your mileage is niceley below 100k, that gives you lots of time to find an honest mechanic.

How do i release tension on a 2004 pontiac vibe

Take note of the tensioner pulley and the tensioner arm that extends from the pulley. The tensioner pulley is the smallest pulley and has a metal arm extending from it. A bolt is located near the top of the arm. Place a ?? mm wrench on the tensioner arm bolt and rotate it forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Do not release the tensioner arm.
Pull the belt off of the pulleys and slowly rotate the tensioner arm back into its original position.

  • Step 3 Place a 15 mm wrench on the tensioner arm bolt and rotate it forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Do not release the tensioner arm.
  • Step 4 Pull the belt off of the pulleys and slowly rotate the tensioner arm back into its original position.

    Replacing rotors on a 2003 pontiac vibe

    Remove the caliper and caliper anchor and the rotor pulls off. Sometimes you need to us a hammer on the inside because of rust if you live in the rust belt. I own a 2004 Vibe so I've been there.
