A serpentine belt almost never breaks unless one thing happens---one of the accessories seizes and won't turn.Remove the belt and see which pulley won't turn.The serpentine belt is strong enough to keep the engine from cranking up(better grip on the pulleys compared to the old V-belts).I actually remember a tech 3 stalls down from me sell a customer an engine,only to find the alternator was just seized.(embarassing!)Any one accessory bearing will keep it from cranking up,and I'm sure you'll find it quickly after removing the belt.

remove the belt to ac compressor.take your serpentine belt go around crank pulley goes around power steering pump goes around alternator and the tensioner on the far left. the water pump on the out side and the top idler pulley out side. the belt drives them from the out side. then you put your ac compressor belt back on.

SOURCE: V groove pulley slipped off of harmonic balancer of 1999 Grand Am

After checking around, I decided to replace the harmonic balancer. I had a repair shop fix it for me and I think they over charged for the part. But, at least I'm on the road again. This Grand Am has 227,000 miles and still runs pretty good.

You use a breaker bar to move the tensioner, remove the belt and use the tensioner to put it back. You draw the belt and pulleys on a sheet of paper before removing, otherwise there should be a small diagram of the belt and pulley positions on the fan shroud or radiator support.

Need to replace serpentine belt


Serpentine Belts are relatively easy to replace with just a wrench. Locate the tensioner (spring loaded) and when you move it CW it will loosen the belt. There should be a diagram of the belt routing on the frame close to the battery, if not it will also be in your owners manual.

The water pump is in front of the engine block. If you follow the serpentine belt to the pulley that connects to the radiator fan. That pulley also is the water pump pulley,and you should see a large radiator hose at the bottom,passenger side. There should be a smaller hose from the top. Hope this help, keep me posted. Be glad to help.
