loosen the alternator and push the alternator to-wards the engine,put your new belt on ,fitting around the 3 pulleys once fitted look and see that the belt is in line.If your happy the belt is lined put a small bar between the engine and alternator and force the alternator out towards the front this should tension your belt tighten bolts on alternator.;at the longest point between two pullys in the middle of the belt move belt up and down with fingers if tension is right it should not move more than about 150ml,hope this helps you.adrian

If your caddy is the 1.9 diesel
The mark you are looking for is on the flywheel. Remove the plastic plug in top of the bell housing to reveal a small arrow. Rotate engine until the flywheel TDC mark lines up with this arrow

Theres a good chance that motor is ruined if the belt broke.. I'll have to do some research and see if its an interference engine. if so.. Ya probably gonna need some extensive cyl head work.. I'll get back to ya
