See diagram posted on radiator housing or download picture from internet site.

Use wrench, or hand, to pull/push slack adjuster away from old belt.
Place new belt around all pulleys except the slack adjuster
Pull slack adjuster to slack position and place belt onto it.

Mine is so easy to move that I can move it w/o any tools just with my hand.

Ok, Alternators are a breeze on these things. There are two bolts that hold it on, and 2 sets of wires. If you haven't taken anything apart yet, and the belt is still on it, here's what to do. You will want one of those rubber or elastic bungee cords, about 2 and a half feet long(this makes it easy). Hook that bungee cord to your hood somewhere, so that it hangs down. Hook the other end on the serpentine belt right next to the alternator pulley. If you need to prop the hood up with a stick or something to keep it up, do so. Pull up on the belt, and watch the pulleys. The one that probably has a plastic pulley on it that moves up and down(this is the tensioner) is the one that you'll put a deep well socket in the middle of with a ratchet, and turn counterclockwise. This will make the belt go loose. Now you can work the belt off the alternator pulley, and once you get it off, the bungee cord will keep it in place, so you don't have to look at the diagram. Otherwise, if it comes off, there is a sticker just under the hood either on the fan shroud or the radiator support that has the belt diagram. Now, you can disconnect the battery, pull the rubber boot down off the nut and post on the back of the alternator, remove the nut and wire, and then unhook the wire from the side of the alternator. Now, you can remove the two bolts that hold the alternator on. You Will need to pry the alternator off at this point, as it fits really tightly in place. A socket extension or a large flat screwdriver works really well for this. Once you get it off, put the new one on exactly as you took the old one off. Note, you will have to release your tension on the tensioner at some point; i just ease it down, or if I can pull it off, wedge it somewhere where it won't loosen very far. Remember, on the tensioner, you're not trying to take the nut off. All you're doing is using it to move the tensioner arm. That's all there is to this job. Sometimes it can be stubborn with the prying part, especially getting it into place. Hope this is what you're after, and if you need more info, leave a comment for me.

SOURCE: My 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier won't turn over.

first check the starter, it may need some cleaning especially the terminals for the contact inside. next the ignition switch, maybe the plastic with the wires is worn out thus not having contact.

How do you relieve tensioner on 2001 cavalier


You'll need a surpentine belt tool which you can rent at an autoparts store.
Insert the 3/8" square end of the tool into the square hole in the tensioner and push down to relieve the belt tension.

Hope this helps.

How do I program the remote in a 19990GMC Suburban 1500


Garage door openers hold the key to this issue. Get a ladder and read the label on your opener motor. Now days they use rolling code technology and an invitation process.

Read carefully, there are two processes, one excludes ALL other remotes, and one adds new ones...

Essentially the process is press and hold button on transmitter, then press and hold programming button on the opener... When lights flash, the two have communicated and will assign themselves a new communication code (rolling code) on every use...

2001 suburban. how to change a/c belt


2001 Suburbans generally have two belts. The primary drive belt and the A/C compressor belt. You must first remove the primary drive belt before removing the A/C belt. They are both kept in place with a tensioner. A standard 3/8 rachet will help give you the leverage to disengage the tensioner and remove the belt. Replace in reverse order.
