I removed the bolt for that motor mount while a jack held the engine up. When the screw was loose enough to take out completely, I raised the engine up slightly so I got enough space to run the belt through it. Don't use a jack by itself, find a piece of wood and let it rest on the wood or a tool that is meant to hold up a tranny or engine.

The bottom bolt of the motor mount can be removed. There is a cylindrical metal spacer there that drops out when the bolt is removed, leaving plenty of room for the belt.

Do you need to remove the l/h side motor mount to replace serpentine belt on a 2001 park avenue?


No it is not necessary to remove the motor mount on either the standard 3.8L or the super charged engine. Just remove the tension on the tensioner and remove the belt or belts, both will come off without removing the motor mount.

Replacing serpentine accessory belt. Is it necessary to remove motor mounting brace to remove and install new serpentine belt?


From my understanding I think you have to remove the motor mount and mount the engine to remove it because I have been asking different mechanics about the serpintine belt on my 1998 Buick Lasabre.

There is no diagram for replacing my broken serpentine belt on my 1996 regal 3800


On the bracket that attaches the motor mount to engine, the lowest nut and stud must be removed (can reach by removing wheel and from bottom). Then remove spacer (that goes around stud), install belt then reinstall spacer, stud and nut.

Do i have to disconnect motor mount to replace my drive belt


Depends on the motor. If there is a mount on the passanger side that the belt goes around then yes. Don't fret though, easy to get around. Use a jack and a piece of wood on the oil pan to support the motor so you can remove the motor mount to remove the belt. Again, this is on SOME gm motors not all. On the others the mount isn't in the way at all.

Supertine belt


Some of these have a motor mount that has to be removed in order to take the belt off. I am assuming that you have probably gotten that far and need to know why the belt is wrapped aroung this mount? Hope this is 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.
