  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen the accessory-to-mounting bracket bolt(s) and adjusting bolt.
  3. Rotate the accessory to relieve the belt tension.
  4. Slip the drive belt from the accessory pulley, then remove it from the engine.
If the engine uses more than one belt, it may be necessary to remove belts that are in front of the belt being removed.
To install:
  1. Place the new belt over the crankshaft or drive pulley and stretch over the driven (accessory) pulley.
  2. If removed, install the any other belts in the same manner.
  3. Adjust the belt(s) to the proper tension.
  4. Tighten the adjusting and mounting bolts.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.

Serpentine belt on a 3800 supercharger


there should be a decal under the hood somewhere that shows the belt routing. if its gone you can probably go to the library and find a book of your car that will show the routing and you can either draw a picture or take a photo of it.

I cant remember where the belt tensioners go on my 1997 riviera supercharged engine


Your parts dealer should be able to print a diagram for you. Also, check with the Buick Riviera owners websites.

Need belt diagram for 96 3800 buick riviea


The 1996 Buick Riviera SC has two belts. An inner and an outer belt. The outer belt is for the supercharger and the inner belt is the drive accessory belt. Rotate the tensioner pulley (idler) and remove the outer belt first. The do the same to remove the inner belt. Check all make pulleys and make sure they are free of any debris or oil.

Install

Route the belt according to the diagram above leaving the tensioner pulley for last and maintaining tension on the belt with your hand. Rotate the tensioner pulley enough to slip the belt on. Inspect your belt and make sure it on correctly before you start to put the outer belt on. Repeat these steps for the outer belt.

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Change alternator belt on 1996 buick riviera


The 96 Riviera has a motor mount that interferes with the removal and replacement of the serpentine belt. The motor mount must be loosened and the engine need to be lifted slightly to accomplish the replacement. Not good engineering on this model year.

Not too bad. Loosen water pump pulley bolts then remove belt. Remove pulley and remove all of the pump bolts.
