Sorry for the delay. I am personally going back to answer your unanswered question.
I do not know if you still need the answer, but I am going to answer it in case you still do.

Click on the following direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagrams that you will need for your specific engine size and options (AC/No AC...etc).


To answer your direct question: Yes you have to remove the Engine Mount. Scroll Down and see Diagram #G00286624 on the Link.

Replacing serpentine accessory belt. Is it necessary to remove motor mounting brace to remove and install new serpentine belt?


From my understanding I think you have to remove the motor mount and mount the engine to remove it because I have been asking different mechanics about the serpintine belt on my 1998 Buick Lasabre.

How to replace drive/serpentine belt for '97 buick le sabre 3.8? do u have to remove engine mount/bracket or just engine mount?


You don't have to remove the mount. Go thru the wheel well on the passenger side and remove the motor mount bolt just right of the crank pulley. Then remove the stud that the nut was on. Then remove the sleeve that the stud goes thru. Then you can change the belt.

Take off the motor mount?


No. You have to remove one bolt and stud. Go thru the wheel well and look to the right of the crank pulley. You will see an 18 mm nut. Remove the nut, then remove the stud with an inverted torx bit if it doesn't come out with the nut. Then remove the spacer that the stud went thru, and then the belt will come off.

Do I have to remove pass side motor mount to change serpetine belt on 1999 lesabre


Not sure, but I had a 1997 Malibu and I had to loosen the top motor mount and jack up the engine to get enough room to get the belt under it. (What a crappy design). Sounds like the LeSabre is the same way.

Fan Belt replacement


Sort of, look at the belt closely before you remove it to make sure the belt is not looped through the motor mount. On some makes there is a motor mount that is attached to the sidewall of the vehicle and this mount must be removed to remove and reinstall the belt, otherwise, yes it is that simple. Make sure you know how the belt goes back on. There should be a diagram under the hood for the belt routing. Or you can grab a sheet of paper and draw it yourself. If you do attempt to change it and the motor mount must be removed, you have to support the engine weight with a jack before removing the mount. Be careful and please let me know if this was helpful.

Serpentine belt


You actally have to take the Motor Mount off. The way I did it was to remove the Front Right Wheel and the Plastic Guard. There you will see the Motor Mount and the Bolt that needs to be removed. Once removed, the melt piece betwee the bracket and engine pops out. Then you can replace the belt and put everything back together.
