Usually it takes a special tool or a crowbar to take the load off the tensioner to remove the old belt and install the new one. Make sure you have a diagram of the belt routing before you take the old belt off.
There should be videos on Youtube for GM engines.

SOURCE: how to change the serpentine belt on a lumina euro 3.1??

I found on my 92 lumina 3.1 the easiest way to change the belt is to have two people handy (you and a helper) push the belt tensioner (which is more in the middle of the belt system, its the only thing that has give when pressure is applied) down (which will loosen the belt) have your partner slip the belt off the altenator (which should be on the very top of the belt system on the passenger side) and just pay attention to the way the belt is routed as you remove it, put the new one on (routed correctly) push the tensioner again have your partner slip it back over the altenator....and you have a new belt on with no tools :)

just pay good attention to the routing of the belt, and i also think there is a black cover over the belt which needs to be removed before the old belt can be taken off (if you dont see it at first you will find it) it has 3 bolts i think and also a diagram of the routing....

TIP: the tensioner will take some muscle to move down, and yes the belt is running over it....

If it's a 4.2l it is on the left of the vehicle under the power steering pulley. It twists to the right, or clock-wise as you are looking at the engine. Use a 3/8" ratchet handle and possibly an extension.
Good Luck. I'm not sure if you have a v8.

SOURCE: diagram for 1998 buick lasabre serpentine belt

I found the diagram in my owner's manual.
I replaced the belt on mine just 2 days ago. All you need to do is remove one bolt from the lower motor mount and remove the spacer. After you relieve the belt tensioner, the belt will slip right through the gap. Don't forget to support the engine before removing the bolt. As a backup I took a photo of the belt with my digital camera beforehand... just in case.

How can i tell if my 1998 chevy lumina car motor is locked up?


Does it have oil in it? If it does, its more than likely its not, take the serpentine belt off or which ever one that's around the alternator.An alternator that has a bad bearing can seize up and keep the motor from turning over.
