Question about 1997 Buick Park Avenue
How's your engine coolant level? If you've got a water pump leaking coolant, your belt will squeak, as the pump will leak the coolant directly onto the belt. You'll see the spray pattern under the hood if it's been going on for a while.

You must press on tensioner to make room for new belt. The tensioner then re-traps and keep belt tension when new belt in on. So in other words you have to put belt over all othe pulley leaving tensioner for last using a 3/8 ratchet with out a socket (just the square end) in the hole thats in the tensioner pushdown/up to make room for belt to slide on. If the belt seems short make sure that it is routed the correct way. Good Luck get back to me if you need more help and leave me a "rating". Thanks

there is a pic under the hood that showes the corect way to run the belt. over and under diferant pulleys. figure out the corect way it goes and use a breaker bar to pull the tenchenor so you can slide the belt on, then let go slow and your done. the soring holds the pulley at the exact right tension. you can do this it's not that hard... good luck

Firt - study & write down (draw) the belt path,,
and be sure about it..
Then - put a wrench on the nut in the center of the tension pully.. Move the tension pully to loosen the belt.. Pull belt off..
Repeat to put new one on..
Should be pretty easy..
