The belt, most likely is shot...just get it replaced. Your car comes equipped with a "tensioner" pulley that keeps the belt tight all the time. Unless you have mechanical experience, I really do NOT recommend trying this job at home...Just DON'T GO TO THE DEALERSHIP!
Good Luck

You most likely need a new serpentine belt and/or tensioner. Both are extremely easy DIY jobs with simple hand tools.

Noise comming from motor like screaming like a belt failing


Sounds like a belt is slipping. Most probably the altinator belt. Its just a case of tightening it up. In most cases this is done by looseing the altinator a bit and pushin it to make the belt tighter

How to tighten the altinator belt


You might have the wrong belt. I just did this on my 92 Marquis and ended up with the belt for a 97. The gear layout was all wrong for the first. There was an additional wheel called the 'idler'.

You should see it if you stand in front of car, look at the belts behind radiator fan, look to the top of those belts and it should be to the left with a belt hooked to it.

Automatic seat belt removal and replace with regular seat belts


You'd need to pickup the need parts at the junkyard. You'll need the "A" to "B" pillar trim, lower "B" pillar trim, front seat belts and seatbelt giude from a 1995 SC1 or SC2.

The treaded hole in the frame of the car where the track of the automatic seatbelt assembly attaches is in a slightly different place than the three point system. Its not a problem though. You just need to drill a 3/4" hole slightly above the existing hole in the trim panel. The existing hole is hidden by the seatbelt and not noticable at all.

Everything else pretty much bolts or snaps into place.

I've done this swap on several 1991-1994 Saturn S-Series.
