Question about Saab 9 3
How much should I expect to pay for labor and parts to have a new serpentine belt put on? Can I get an estimate for just replacing the belt and another estimate if the pulley system needs to be replaced. I know rates are determined by region but If I could at least get an understanding of how many hours it take to do that would be great.

You can bypass both the AC compressor and the middle serpentine idler pulley with a 6PK1790. The middle pulley is bypassed by running the belt straight line from the upper rear serpentine idler straight to the power steering pulley, then over the water pump (the smooth pulley powered by the back side of the belt) and down to the engine drive pulley (harmonic balancer), bypassing the AC compressor) This works fine. On 9.5 models, the same basic idea, but a slightly different sized belt.
