Go to this website : autorepair.about.com/library/images/b1869a-lib.htm Theres your belt route. After that belt is run put a I believe it's a 5/8ths or 9/16ths socket on the tension pulley. Pull down on it and you should be good to go............Thank you for using Fixya.com..........Please rate this solution...thank you!

Buick usually puts the belt route on the top of the fan shroud for the radiator,as far as instalation you need a half in breaker bar or ratchet there should be a spot on the tensionaor pulley assembly to put the end of the ratchet or breaker bar to leverage the pulley loose anough to slip the new belt on.I replaced the - 633e68e.gifThis belt route should be close,same motor different year,and a pic of your belt tensionor.Hope this helps,please rate if it does.

1995 F150 Ford pickup 5.0 L engine can I bypass the air pump pulley and the AC with a serpentine belt and how long is it


There are some bracket kits to bypass A/C pulleys but unknown for air pump pulley. Will help by saying when you get a new serpetine belt be sure that the grooves match the pulleys. What you have to worry about is the speed of the alternator and water pump and steering pump when the belt length is changed. You may over or under speed the steering pump and have too much or too little power assist at different speeds.

Easiest way to measure this is by removing old belt, (take photo for routing first) and then use rope to do trial routing. Once you get the spring on the idler arm to fully tension for rope you should be pretty close. Then slip off rope and measure length. Do not start engine with rope in place.

My altinator belt broke off on my 2002 kia can I fix this myself?


You have install a new serpetine belt and it can be harder than you think.you have to pull back the tensioner and install the new one but you may have another problem which unless it was an old belt you need to check your water pump, idler, alt. for freeness, make sure one hasnt locked up causing the belt to fail.
