Put an 18mm, or whatever size is correct, socket on 1/2" drive bar, or ratchet , and put it securely on nut in center of tensioner pulley. Standing in front of car, you need to pull it upward, with bar on right side, or from passenger side, pull toward you with bar pointing upward. If no socket, try a long wrench same size that will fit on nut good & snug, be sure in each case to pull as straight as possible to avoid wrench slipping off.

What would cause my serpentine belt to not fit on my buick lesabre custom 2001


Those belts have a tensioner on them. IF the belt is too big then the tensioner might not be retracted. It might be missing. There are idler pulleys too. If you have high miles on the this car, the pulley or the tensioner might be worn. The tensioner also has to be pulled back to have the belt put on.

I want to replace the serpentine belt on a 2003 Buick LeSabre Custom with V6. How do I release tension on it?


look for small pulley with a square hole in it then you will have to install a 3/8 ratchet into it and pull in either direction until you see the belt loosen its a spring loaded tensioner so it will return once pressure is relieved, be careful these tensioners are very strong. in some cases they use a bolt and you will have to use a socket to release the tension most tensioners are located towards the center of the belt routing.

How do i change the cerpintine belt?


There should be a routing diagram under the hood. Put a wrench on the tensioner pulley (the one with the spring in/on it) to release the pressure on the belt. Remove the belt. Follow the routing diagram, put the wrench back on the tensioner pulley apply pressure to get the belt back on. (to give you enough room to get the belt back on all of the pulleys)
