I have the same car and you can remove one engine mount bolt that blocks installation by going thru the righthand side wheel well. When you remove the bolt a spacer can removed from the engine mount and you install the belt. A pain in the @#$% but not as bad as described by the shop manual.

How to change a 1996 chevrolet 1500 pu fan belt


this is done by locating the spring loaded tensioner and taking a 3/8" ratchet and pushing. it is only spring loaded. make sure you follow the routing diagram or if one is not handy under the hood, draw it out as to not forget. it ONLY goes on one way. make sure also that the writing on the belt, you can read it normally without having to stand on the engine. if you dont these belts have the potential to squeek like a bad pulley or belt.

My problem is that i cant find a way to put the engine belt on my car. The engine bracket is in the way so i just need help putting the belt on. Am i supposed to take the bracket off and then put the belt...


There are 2 types of engines that you need to remove two bolts from the the engine bracket. to be able to install the belt. remove the bolts . not to be confused with the nuts . In order to replace the belt. there are only 2 bolts. Then you pry the tensioner to loosen the belt. remove it and press the tensioner to install the new belt. it will create tension automatically. hen replace the bracket.
