SOURCE: serpentine belt

You actally have to take the Motor Mount off. The way I did it was to remove the Front Right Wheel and the Plastic Guard. There you will see the Motor Mount and the Bolt that needs to be removed. Once removed, the melt piece betwee the bracket and engine pops out. Then you can replace the belt and put everything back together.

motor mount does not need to be removed. there is an idler pulley which can be lifted up using a socket and long bar. the belt relaxes and is easily removed and replaced.

How to fix a leak that seems to be coming from the water pump or A/C?

No, that sounds like the water pump pulley. Loosen the 4 bolts with the serp. belt still on, then remove belt, and remove the pulley and the 4 bolts. Drain the coolant, and now you can remove and replace the water pump. It is not fixable, it must be replaced. Be sure and clean the mating surface of old gasket material and dirt, grease, etc. YouTube should have lots of videos on water pump replacement, maybe one for Aleros.

How do I replace a serpentine belt bypassing the air conditioner ... I am not using the air conditioner pulley at all.

Odds are you can't. The ac compressor is mounted in the belt routing so it would need the pulley to keep the belt tight.
You can get a used compressor from a salvage yard and mount it in place of your old part if necessary. It will allow the belt to run even if it has no freon in the system.
There are a few vehicles that a replacement dummy pulley was designed for, but I am not aware of one for your vehicle. Usually if you try to run the belt without the compressor pulley, it will rub against something or not allow the belt to run in the right direction.

How do you replace a serpentine belt on a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero V6

yall are ignorant fools, on the v6 model it is necessary to lift the engine from it's mount to thread the serpentine belt. ghetto way is to slap a 2x4 under your oil pan and jack it up, an engine hoist does the same but classier, and less chance of breaking anything. once it's threaded around the mount, work it onto the pulleys and when it comes time to tension it up have a buddy slip the belt under the smooth pully in the middle while you push on the auto tensioner. should slip on with a little effort, make sure all your Vgrooves are lined up, and the belts path is free of obstructions, like bent ta bs that can chaffe the belt. if everything looks good, turn her over.

Replaced engine belt on 1999 saab 9.5 old belt broke thought their would an adjustable that i could move to get new belt on then tighten it back up

These should have a belt tensioner pulley........It is designed to be pushed up or down to slide the belt over the pulley that is mounted to the tensioner.....Normally the tensioner will have a square slot in it to put a 3/8 or a 1/2 in ratchet head into it and move it up or down.....Some tensioners are designed to put a socket or wrench on the pully bolt head..then push tensioner in tightening position to flex tensioner and slide belt over pulley.....It has to be one or the other......Just look very closely at the pulleys...Some tensioners have an arrow on the side of it showing which direction to push it to re-install the belt....It is mounted sperately by itself....It is called Serpentine Belt Tensioner .......................................It is self adjusted...It is flexed up and down very fast while it is running and if it ever gets loose from age you just replace it.......There is no nut and bolt adjustment for a serpentine belt..................Hope this helps.....................................Metalpoet

2006 Toyota Corolla, every morning there is squeaky sound when I start the car. Later, it goes away. It is for the past six months. Is it serpentine belt causing this sound, if so how I can loose...

The problem is the rear motor mount is filled with hydraulic fluid that leaks onto the accessory drive belt. The motor mounts fail prematurely and the fluid makes the belt squeak. Toyota dealership I took my 2006 Corolla to replaced the motor mount and belt free of charge.

When iput my car in gear i can fell the motor raise up with a thump noise also fan belt makes a winning sound

The Motor raising up issue is, you may have a worn or broken Engine or Transmission Mount, inspect the mounts by having someone or you, look at the mounts while someone else puts the car in gear. If you see the mounts move excessively, than the mounts need to be replaced. The whining or squealing Fan Belt may be a worn, glazed or loose belt. I would inspect the belt and tighten or replace as needed.

I replaced the water pump and cut the old serpentine belt out that was tangled around the pulleys Now I cannot figure out how to get the motor mount off to get it up around the alternator pulley

Here's a link to a web site to give you a diagram for your serpentine. Just insert the year,make,model, and engine size. Once there, you will see to the left a link below the part number called "Routing diagram". Best of luck on your repair.

Installing the serpentine belt

The power steering pump is only held on by two bolts that are removed thru the pulley holes. Anyway you don't have to remove the whole motor mount just remove the nut that holds the mount just to the left of the balancer. then remove the stud with a inverted torx bit. then remove the sleeve the stud went thru and then the belt will come off.

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 . . .
