The belt will start by putting the outside facing on the alternator. then it runs the back of the belt onto the water pump, third its back goes onto the tensioner and fourth the belt runs onto the steering pump just as the alternator did, facing in.

Usually under the hood or somewhere in the engine compartment there is a belt route diagram. Hope that helps.

The tensioner pulley on my 1997 Cherolet Cavalier Z24 will not move so I can replace my serpentine belt. The old belt wore off while driving.


You will have to replace your serpentine belt tensioner. Call local auto parts store and ask them if you can get just the pully or if you have to by the whole tensioner. Call around and don't be surprised if you can't get what you need from your local auto parts store because some do not carry after market belt tensionrs. In this case you will need to order it from a GM dealership's parts department.

Serpentine belt came off need to know how it goes back on


this is hard to exsplain without showing you a photo ,but i will try. first get the belt around the engine crankshaft which is the pully closest to the bottom and center of the engine. when standing in front of engine start to lead the belt to the right and connect to power steering pump then up to generator, next thare is going to be a smooth pully not groved like the others to the left,put the smooth side of the belt on bottom of this pully and continue left to the ac/compressor go around ac/compressor andstraight down to the belt tensioner , and then right over to the water pump which has a smooth pully not grooved. remember the smooth pullys will always carry the smooth side of the belt and the grooved pullys the grooved side of belt. the belt tensioner will half to be released by a serpantine belt tensioner tool sold at your local auto parts store. these instructions is for 3.8 liter engine, if you have a 4.6 liter engine it will be different, so repost stating that you have a 4.6 if this dont help
