1995 cadillac deville how to replace serpentine belt


You'll need to locate the tensioner pulley and rotate it toward the center of the engine with either a 3/8 or 1/2 inch ratchet or breaker bar. This will allow you to pull the old belt off and install the new one. There should be a sticker near the radiator that shows the belt routing, if not there will also be a diagram in the owner's manual. This is a fairly easy job so good luck.

Replacing a serpentine belt


Don't have a chart, video, or diagram available at the moment. Can offer you generic advice.

1.Somewhere in the middle of that serpentine belt, that is wrapped around all those pulleys, is an Idler tensioner Pulley. All this pulley does, is put tension on that serpentine belt. Usually located somewhere in the middle.

The Idler tensioner Pulley will be on a bracket. It will be on the end of the bracket. The bracket usually has a 1/2 inch square hole in it. This is used for a tool, that resembles a 1/2 inch breaker bar.
-> I, use a 1/2 inch breaker bar.
The 1/2 inch breaker bar is inserted into this square hole, and the bracket is pulled to one side.
This pulls the tensioner pulley away from the serpentine belt, allowing the belt to have slack, and then the belt is slipped off of one of those pulleys. Release the pressure slowly, remove the tool. Then the serpentine belt is removed all the way.

(The Idler tensioner pulley bracket, can only be moved in one direction, to take pressure off of the serpentine belt. The direction opposite, of it putting pressure on the serpentine belt.

The spring used to put pressure is Very strong. This is also an area, where you can easily slip, cutting your knuckles, or fingers, or hand, on sharp objects. Use caution, you may want to wear a glove, or gloves!)

Then the new serpentine belt is wound around the pulleys in the correct pattern, the Idler Tensioner Pulley is once again pulled to the side, and the last of the serpentine belt is slid into place. Then you slowly release the tensioner pulley, and it puts pressure on the serpentine belt once more.

Make sure the serpentine belt is in the grooves of the pulleys, and is wound around in the correct pattern.

On the car hood inside, or on the radiator support, or perhaps on the inner fender well, or in the Owners Manual, it should show the correct pattern for installing the serpentine belt.

It could be several things, most likely the idler pulley that keeps the serpentine belt tight. But could also be, power steering pump, altenator. ac compressor or water pump. The best way to find out is to remove the belt from the car by releasing the idler pulley tension. Then one by one check each component by feeling for slack in them and spinning them by hand to see if you feel
roughness. Good luck and dont forget to rate.
