You should have an idler pully...when you find that, find the correct size wrench and push down/up to relieve pressure on the belt then just slide it off.

I HAVE A 03 CHAVY CAVALIER AND MY BATTERY LIGHT CAME ON TODAY AND MY AIR STOPED WORKING. IT WOULD STILL BLOW BUT IT WAS NOT COOL.


Hi Britnie, The battery light means it's not charging , Alternator problem , possibly ! Is there a auto parts store near you ? Most will check it out for free ! With ac not working too , could be just the serpentine belt . The belt turns the alternator an ac compressor !

Need to change a serpentine belt for a 2003 cavaalier is there an easier way


I would just release tension on the belt with a breaker bar. And put the new belt in by weaving it through the various pulleys, smooth side, followed by grooved side, and so on until the belt is on every pulley except the tensioner pulley.

Again, release tension on the tensioner pulley with the breaker bar, and then put the loop of the belt on that pulley and you're done.

Change a serpentine belt on a 1996 chevy cavalier


Diagram should be under the hood
The auto tensioneris down low and dificult to get to.
If it has not been changed in a while you will need a long thin push stick and a serpentine tool.
Push on the belt hard at the auto adjuster and pop the belt off the smooth pully (located top).
hook up the serpentine belt tool and then mount the new belt

How do I release the belt tension pully to replace serpentine belt


You can run down to your local auto parts store and buy a serp belt tool. Or you can take a 3/8 drive ratchet, locate the 3/8 square hole in your tensioner and put the ratchet in the hole. For more leverage I put a deep socket over the ratchet handle and put a long 3/8 extention in the deep socket. This will provide ample leverage and will save buying more tools you do not need. Simply move the tensioner to the direction that takes pressure off of the belt.
