There is usally and idler wheel that the fan belt goes around that you have to push away from the belt with a socket wrench or a special tool you can buy at most auto stores (a long bar with the proper drive on the end of it). Sometimes I just use a crow bar pressing againt the idler pulley if there is something safe to press agaist. Sometime you have to losen the alternator bolts and tip the alternator away from the belt if it runs of the same belt as the fan.

How do you release tension from the serpentine belt to change water pump on a 89 oldsmobile cutlass ciera?


In the middle of the idler pulley/tensioner, there is a bolt head (I think it is a 13 or 15mm). Use a wrench or socket to turn it away from the belt, this will release the tension on the belt and allow you to remove the belt. Be careful, it is spring loaded....

Need to replace serpentine belt


There should be a diagram of the belt routing on the engine near the belt, the radiator support, or the hood. If not, make sure you draw a diagram of the belt and pulleys before you remove it.
There is a spring loaded tensioner that keeps the belt tight. You move the tensioner away from the belt to release the tension while removing the belt. Install is the reverse procedure.

Changing serpentine belt does it require a special tool


no,15 mil.wrench to release the tensioner ,the bolt is left hand thread,so it won't unscrew when you release the tension on the belt.
If there is no diagram on the rad. support of the belt routing you may want to draw a "map " of the belt routing just to be safe.

How to change serpentine belt on 1993 Olds Cutlass Ciera V6 motor


Click on the following direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagrams that you will need for your specific engine size and options (AC/No AC...etc).

Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating it\moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them
