take belt off then make sure you have the right size socket and breaker bar to loosen the bolts on the tensioner and do everything in reverse to put new on

SOURCE: I cant put my surpatian

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.

SOURCE: HOW CAN I REMOVE THE BELT TENSIONEER FOR A 1997 BUICK LESABRE TO REPLACE THE BY PASS THAT GOES FROM THE TENSIONEER TO THE MOTOR

Look for the 1/2" square hole on the tensioner. That hole is were you place a 1/2" breaker bar, to relieve the tension, by pulling on the bar.

(98 buick lasaber custom)My tension pulley assembly broke , after being replaced belt still is falling off when I bump the motor?


Could be other bad pulleys. Look at the belt inline with the pulleys. If one is bad, you will see it misaligned. With the belt off the pulleys should have very little to no play and should turn by hand smoothly.

My engine accessory belt came loose on a 98 buick lesabre with a 3800 engine. Can I loosen Alternator so it can slip back on?


There should be a TENSION PULLEY/ARM that accepts a large (3/4"?) wrench or cresent wrench. You rotate the pulley in the direction to loosen (its' tension) and get the belt back in place.
Sometime if the belt has ridden off the pulleys it will need to be replaced. Turn it so the "teeth" are on the outside and see if there are cracks in the rubber. Also look for wear marks on the pulleys or "rubber" that has come off the belt.

Can not get the serpentine belt around the motor mount


on some of the 3.8 you do have to remove the motor mount,there is no way around it. It is not as bad as it sounds.
