The best way to get to the tensioner is to remove the passenger side wheel and the plastic cover piece behind it. Make sure you have the car on HIGH QUALITY jack stands, as you will be working under the car. I believe the tensioner takes a 5/8 wrench, but you'll need a thin one with a bend, as there is NO room for a socket. It's a bit of a pain, but possible with the correct wrench. Again, DO NOT take the chance of having the car simply on a jack. Your children will thank you.

In order to replace the serpentine belt on a 1994 Buick Skylark It appears that something has to be removed in order to remove the belt and replace it. What exactly has to be removed?


Nothing has to be removed. Just relieve the tension on the belt and it will come off. Find the tensioner pulley and pry it back. Look for a square hold where you insert a 1/2" ratchet. If you find none look for a way to pry it back. All you have to do is relieve the tension.

Removal of serpentine belt on a 1996 Buick automobile?


check if it has a tensioner, it look like a useless pully and put a breaker bar on it and pull it and the belt should loosen up, if theres no tensioner the alternator should have bolts to loosen up the belts.

Changing the serpentine belt


Your vehicle has an automatic belt tensioner. It should be located near the other pullies because the belt runs over it too. Usually required is a ratchet or box end wrench to work it. Once you get the wrench on the pulley, pull the tensioner loose to remove the belt and the reverse to replace it. The vehicle should have a routing diagram for the belt.
I believe the belt diagram is on the left corner on the passenger side.
Good luck and hope this helps
