There should be a belt tensioner you can loosen off. loosen it, feed your belt through then tighten up the tensioner. note - get a diagram off how to feed your belt through all the wheels.

SOURCE: How do you change a serpentine belt on a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero?

Brute force - you have to pry up the tensioner pulley. The way we did it was put the belt over the alternator and A/C compressor, and get it back in place around the main bearing pulley. Then we took a bar and forced up the tensioner and slid the belt over the main bearing pulley. Voila . . .

Change the alternator


First, take several pictures of the serpentine belt arangement so you know how that goes back together.
Here are the steps I recommend :
- 1 ) Remove negative cable (black) from the battery.
- 2 ) Loosen the serpentine belt by pulling back the belt tensioner( you may need a special tool)
- 3 ) Remove the connector plug and( red) hot wire.
- 4 ) Pull the bolts out holding alt on bracket.
- 5 ) Pull out alt.
How do you know that the alt is bad ? A auto parts center can check it for you.
What are you replacing it with, new or used.
Please let me know how it goes.

Hello. look around inside of the engine compartment, on the inside of the hood, and in your owner manual. They always put a diagram of the serpentine belt somewhere.

Just changed my serpentine belt and now its getting hot. almost positive that the belt is on right. could i have done any damage when i broke my serpentine belt. it was running when it broke


First verify that the belt is on correctly. If the belt is around the water pump the wrong way it will spin the water pump backward and not correctly circulate the coolant causing it to overheat. When you drove it without the belt did you overheat the motor?How quickly does it overheat? Does thermostat ever open?

'93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC


You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.

Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.
