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.

1997 lasabera 3.8 belt tensioner removal procedure


Ok you do not remove it ! You simple remove the tension from it. There is usually a nut or bolt on the front of it. Put a ratchet or breaker bar on that and go to the opposite direction from the belt. sometimes you will need three hands to remove the belt. Good luck! hope this helps.

Do I have to remove pass side motor mount to change serpetine belt on 1999 lesabre


Not sure, but I had a 1997 Malibu and I had to loosen the top motor mount and jack up the engine to get enough room to get the belt under it. (What a crappy design). Sounds like the LeSabre is the same way.

Fan Belt replacement


Sort of, look at the belt closely before you remove it to make sure the belt is not looped through the motor mount. On some makes there is a motor mount that is attached to the sidewall of the vehicle and this mount must be removed to remove and reinstall the belt, otherwise, yes it is that simple. Make sure you know how the belt goes back on. There should be a diagram under the hood for the belt routing. Or you can grab a sheet of paper and draw it yourself. If you do attempt to change it and the motor mount must be removed, you have to support the engine weight with a jack before removing the mount. Be careful and please let me know if this was helpful.

Serpentine belt


You actally have to take the Motor Mount off. The way I did it was to remove the Front Right Wheel and the Plastic Guard. There you will see the Motor Mount and the Bolt that needs to be removed. Once removed, the melt piece betwee the bracket and engine pops out. Then you can replace the belt and put everything back together.
