    You have a spring-loaded tensioner. When working it provides proper tension without outside adjustment. If belt isn't tight, likely the tensioner has failed.

How do you replace the serpentine belt on a 1995 Buick century 4 cylinder?

This is the advertised procedure:


Except Serpentine Belt
It may be necessary to loosen more than one pulley or remove another belt to access the drive belt, such as the power steering and air conditioning.
  1. Loosen the driven accessory's pivot and mounting bolts.
  2. Move the accessory toward or away from the engine until there is enough slack in the belt to slip it over the pulley of the driven accessory.
  3. Remove the belt from the engine.
  4. Install the new belt and move the accessory toward or away from the engine until the tension is correct. You can use a wooden hammer handle as a lever, but do not use anything metallic.
  5. Adjust the belt tension, then tighten the bolts.
Serpentine Belt
  1. Place a tool over the tensioner pulley axis bolt.
  2. Rotate the tool counterclockwise to relieve belt tension.
  3. Remove the drive belt.
  4. Carefully release the tensioner pulley and remove the tool.
To install:
  1. Route the belt over the pulleys, except tensioner.
  2. Place tool over tensioner, rotate counterclockwise and install belt.
  3. Remove the tool, then check alignment of tension and belt.

A listing of serpentine belt diagrams can be found HERE. It will show you the location of the tensioner pulley, which must be loosened in order to remove and install the new belt. When the new belt is on, just readjust the tension via the tensioner pulley.

You should have a diagram of your serpentine belt routing located under the hood somewhere. The OEM usually places them near the top of the radiator.

If the comprtessor itself is bad, you can unplug the activation wire located up fron of the unit, this will allow the clutch bearing to turn separate of the compressor. If the clutch bearing is the cause you will have a problem, these belt systems are so crazy that it would be almost impossible to select a belt to do what you want.
