I have also replaced my 1998 motor mount with one from Amazon. I went to a junk yard and they were all broke so it is a common problem.

How do i install new serpentine belt?

You'll have to buy or rent the tool used to release the spring tension on the belt by the idler pulley. While holding the tool in position to release tension., grab the belt and bull it off one of the other pulleys. Let go of the tool to remove the belt. Pay attention on how it wraps around the other pulleys or observe the belt routing diagram on the label under the hood

1998 Buick Park Avenue, replaced serp belt, but now no tension.

Hello. The tension can be adjusted. Just loosen the tensioning pulley, use a crow bar to put tension on the serpentine belt and tighten that tensioning pulley back down. Joe

How to change a serpentine belt

This SHOULD be how it's done, but not so on the 90's Park Aves.
With this 3.8 L V-6, you have to remove the motor mount on the side of the engine--and without the proper tools it's about a $290 job for the dealer.

How do you put a car belt on

There is a spring loaded tensioner pulley that you usually put a 1/2" ratchet in a hole to pull and release the tension but as you pull you must slip the belt off one of the pulleys.Reverse for install. If the belt goes around a motor mount you must support the engine(block of wood and floor jack) and remove the motor mount.

Good luck!

Can't get drive belt off a 1996 buick park avenue

My sincere apologies for the delayed response.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.
I have only been a free contributor to this site for the past 4-months.

I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway.

on the following LINK. It has the Belt Diagrams you will need.

Standard Rules for Removal of the Serpentine Belt:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.

3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.

Let me know if this helped.

Is there still Tension on the Belt? If so, You will need to find Something that will Push the Pulley in the Lower Position so that you can remove the Belt. Not going to be Easy and you will need a Helper for this Job. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

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

Replace a serpintine belt on a 1997 Buick Park Avenue

Your car requires you to removed the motor mount to replace the belt. The best way to do it is to place a piece of wood on a small jack and jack up on the engine oil pan. Then removed the motor mount and replace the belt. There is no other way to do it.
