3.8L Engine

  1. Insert a 1/2 inch flex handle in the square hole in the tensioner. The tensioner has a square hole cast into the rear of the tensioner body directly behind the pulley. Rotate the tensioner clockwise and remove the belt from the pulleys.

NOTE As an alternate method, a 16mm socket can be placed on the tensioner pulley bolt and rotated clockwise to remove the belt.

To install:
  1. Following the schematic on the decal under the hood, loop the drive belt over all the pulleys except the alternator pulley.
  2. With the belt installed properly on all except the alternator pulley, rotate the tensioner as described above and install the belt on the alternator pulley. Ensure that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.

4.6L Engine
WARNING Do not allow the drive belt tensioner to snap back as damage to the drive belt tensioner or personal injury could result.


  1. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise with a breaker bar installed in the 3/8 inch square hole in the drive belt tensioner.
  2. Lift the drive belt over the idler pulley flange and remove the drive belt.
To install:
  1. Following the schematic on the decal under the hood, position the belt over the pulleys, except the idler pulley.
  2. Rotate the tensioner as described above and install the belt on the idler. Ensure that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.

There are 2 possible diagrams depending on if you have a 4.6L SOHC or a 4.6L DOHC. This information should be on the plate under the hood. Best of luck!

SOURCE: How to change a serpentine belt on a 97 buick

  1. Remove the belt guard or coolant recovery reservoir as required.
  2. For 1996-99 supercharged engines, perform the following:
    1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    2. Remove the right-hand splash shield.
    3. Remove the connector from the crank sensor.
  3. For 1996-99 vehicles, remove the engine mounting bracket lower nut, stud and spacer. Carefully lower the vehicle.

CAUTION To avoid personal injury when rotating the serpentine belt tensioner, use a tight fitting wrench that is at least 24 in. (61cm) long.

  1. Take note of the belt's routing. Lift or rotate the tensioner using a suitable sized breaker bar in the square opening or box end wrench on the pulley nut. Remove the belt from the pulleys.

Need diagram for placement of serpentine belt for 97 Ford Taurus


Auto Zone has that information on line here. You didn't say what size engine you have or whether it is OHV or DOHC, but according to their numbers, almost 90% of 97 Taurus are 3.0L OHV.
