Yes you should alway be careful when removing belts and hoses as a mistake can cost you fans and radiators easily. First look for the belt tensioner. It will be a spooled item that presses against the belt tightening it by spring pressure. May a note of the route the belt takes and always put the new belt on the same way. The tensioner pulley may spring down a fair ways after you release it with the belt off. Just be sure you can still get at the tensioner at the right angle for putting the belt back on. whenthe belt is off make sure all pulleys and bearing are good and sound making no noise or vibration. If they do change them now and save a headache later.

2000cadilac devile just replaced serpintine belt now car wont start ,just clicks..take off serpintine belt and will start r i ght u 0 what could it be???

Most likely one of the things that the belt drives is frozen. Check that your water pump, power steering pump, alternator, etc all turn without the belt.

Serpintine belt

Here's video for the same job on a 1999 Grand Am.

Nearly all the steps are the same - including jacking the engine & removing the mount bolts. You can skip the part about changing the tensioner pulley if you are not replacing it.
I hope this helps!

Sterring noise i changed the pump but the noise still there

given you have replaced this pump and it is assumed to be new, your 2005 has a serpintine belt set up so isolation via removal of belt per unit makes noise solving troublesome. It is possible to use a mechanics stethoscope to isolate your noise, but these are hard to come by, accepting no responsibility here for advise followed for injuries or damage,,,you can if, " VERY very careful" do the same thing with a long wooden dowel placed on the suspect unit AWAY from the moveing belt pully/wheel, and then on the area of your ear that is closest to the hing of your jaw, you will hear it if that is the problem,, sometimes with the serpintine system thee ideler's and the belt tension idlers that you use to remove and replace the belt have worn bearings in them creating audible sounds that seem to come from the power steering. One other suspect is a worn brush set in your alternator to commutator running in a worn track on the commutaor. If you Know it's the Power steering pump drain/ and remove and return for replacement.

How to remove serpintine belt

Release the belt tensioner and the belt will virtually fall off the pulleys. Make a sketch of the route of the belt before you do that as it can become confusing when you try refit the new belt.

I need an exploded view of water pump replacement

Not too difficult of fix. You'll need to remove the serpintine belt. Drain the radiator. Remove the pulley from the water pump ( I believe three 10MM bolts) After removing this pulley you'll have access to all of the bolts holding in the water pump (I believe there are 5 or 6 8MM bolts) Reverse on install. No need to over tighten on the replacement pump as it has an o-ring seal. Take special care in reinstalling the serpintine belt. I'd get a bit of help to help hold the belt in place as you go.

I hope this may have assisted you, please let me know.

First you need to remove the serpintine belt or alternator belt. If it is a serpintine locate the tension pully(the one that doesn't look like it does anything) place a wrench over the pully bolt and pull while removing the belt. Most generaly all alternators have two bolts holding them in. Remove both bolts. and remove alternator on some vehicles you need to remove the top engine mounts to remove the acctual alternator. make sure you if you do this you put a jack under the bngine block. NEVER ON THE OIL PAN. After that simply remove the old alternator and replace it with the new one reinstall the serpintine belt as instructed on either the underside of your hood or where the hood latch is.

There is a pulley that appears to be not operating anything. This is an idler pulley, Attach a socket to the center of the pulley, when apply pressure it will turn releasing pressure on the belt, remove belt paying attention to the route. Replace belt as it came off. You will be fine.
