There are also two serpentine belt types for the 2002 sable. The S and U type engine. Take the old belt with you the the parts store. As for the diagram, I googled it under images and about a dozen correct ones came up. Remember the 2002 sable is the same as the 2002 Tarus.

You must remove the transmmission. then if you can make enough room by releasing the motor mounts and placing two by fours under them you'll be able to gain acess to drop the oil pan. Drain it, first of course. After which, you'll need to remove the timing belt/chain cover. But before this you'll need to remove the waterpump, power steering pump, A/C if so eqipt,and the alternator. Then you'll be able to remove the timing cover. Line up all timing marks and remove the belt/chain. Then you may have to remove the oil sump tube and screen "IF" it is in the way of dropping the crankshaft. Loosen the crank. bearing bolts in a military rotation from center to out side. Keep each bearing cap in the exact position it came from the engine block on a diagrammed piece of cardboard. You should then be able to remove the crankshaft.Reverse the order for replacement.Put some bearing grease on the new bearings to keep them in place while reassembling the engine. Good Luck!, Dana

Removed two screws from the perimeter of the door, one in the back edge and the other under the bottom. Remove one screw from the handle cup where the window switch is located. Placed some tape around the edge of the handle cup for protection against scratches and pried the cup out with a small putty knife. It is hard, but will pop out. Next I taped the paint around the door panel and used a flat bar to reach behind the panel and had enough of a gap to see the orange tabs and pried each one to remove the panel completely. The panel does not need to be lifted up to removed, just pull it straight off the door. A few tabs may still be holding, but will pop off with a bit of pressure.
