What bolt?In the center of the pulley or one that mounts to the engine block?If it's in the pulley go to autozone and get a replacement.If it is broken off in the block you can grab it with vice grips if it is sticking out and try to unscrew it.If it is flush with or recessed into the block you will most likely have to drill it out then retap the hole to run a new bolt into it.WARNING! Drilling at an angle or drilling too wide or too deep can breech the oil galley or the water jacket or crack the block and all but ruin the engine! If you do it yourself BE CAREFUL of what you are doing! If you aren't sure about doing it yourself,take it to a reputable mechanic or machine shop to have done! Hope this helps.Good luck!

    How do I take off the serpentine belt?


    You need to Locate the Belt Tensioner. It will have a Large Pulley with a Bolt in the Middle above the Belt and a Smaller one Below the Belt that keeps Tension on the Belt. You will need a Wratchet, Socket and Cheater Bar. Turn the Bolt in the Middle of the Large Pulley with the Wratchet and Cheater Bar. It will lower the Smaller Pulley so that you can Remove the Belt.
