SOURCE: Replace belt tensioner pulley on 1994 buick skylark

You need to put a piece of wood underneath the oil pan and place a jack underneath the oil pan/motor, loosen the motor mounts that are next to the belts, then raise the motor enough to reveal the nuts/bolts for pulley...just dont raise the oil pan so high that you crush it or break something, only enough to be able to reach tension pulley...

Serpentine belt


The tension pulley could be going bad, if I were going to replace it I would also replace the best. That way it may last a long time.

I need to take off the belt how do i take it off a 1991 buick skylark?


You will have to loosen tentioner to get belt off of all pulleys. Then you need to jack up engine or pick up engine with a lift of some kind, just enough to hold engine in place while you remove upper engine mount, this has to be done so as to slip belt past mount and off engine. Then put new belt in position and bolt mount back in place. Release jack or lift. I usually put belt back on everything but alternator, pull on tensioner and roll back over alternator. This is on a 3100 engine, or 3.1 liter.

good luck

In order to replace the serpentine belt on a 1994 Buick Skylark It appears that something has to be removed in order to remove the belt and replace it. What exactly has to be removed?


Nothing has to be removed. Just relieve the tension on the belt and it will come off. Find the tensioner pulley and pry it back. Look for a square hold where you insert a 1/2" ratchet. If you find none look for a way to pry it back. All you have to do is relieve the tension.

Idler pulley replacement?


Once the belt is removed, the center bolt from the idler pulley should unscrew normally with a socket. The replacement pulley bolts back in with the same bolt, then just put the belt back on. The bolt should be very snug, but do not overtighten ir it will shorten the life of the idler. As tight as you can get it with one hand using a typical 3/8" ratchet should be adequate. There should be a belt routing diagram on a sticker under the hood. Belt removal and reinstallation is achieved by using a 3/8" drive ratchet or breaker bar to engage the square hole on the spring loaded tensioner arm and flex it clockwise on most engines. On other GM engines, placing a socket on the center bolt of the tensioner pulley and turning clockwise will flex the tensioner to loosen the belt. When you have the belt off, check all pulleys for smooth rotation and listen for squeaking. If any of them bind or squeak, they should be repaired/replaced as well. Installing a new belt is also a good idea when replacing the idler.

Removal of serpentine belt on a 1996 Buick automobile?


check if it has a tensioner, it look like a useless pully and put a breaker bar on it and pull it and the belt should loosen up, if theres no tensioner the alternator should have bolts to loosen up the belts.
