There is a sticker on the frame above your radiator showing the routing of the serpentine belt. You will need a 9/16" (14 mm) wrench to move the tension roller out of position far enough to allow you to install the belt. Reply to this if you need further assistance.

    I am not super familiar with your car, but I have had to disassemble half of the car to get to the alternator on similar cars. I even had to take the front grill out to do some work under the hood of a Chevy Equinox. I found some great videos on YouTube.

    Hello, looking for starter location for a 2006 saturn vue 2.2l 4 cylinder.


    If it's like every other 2.2 front wheel drive Saturn, it should be at the bottom front of the engine, away from the serpentine belt side.
    Look under the car, right side. It should be fairly obvious .
    Please disconnect the battery before attempting any removal.

    How to change the serpinetine belt on a 97 saturn sl2 do we have to change it from the bottom?


    It should be easier from the top. Route the belt around all the pulleys except the alternator. Get your wrench on the tensioner and pull back. Then slip belt onto alternator pulley. It's easier with a second person, but can be done alone.

    How to replace altinator on 2005 saturn relay


    This may be difficult for what i am assuming is a front wheel drive vehicle with a 6 cylinder engine. There is probably not a lot of space to work.

    1. Let engine cool down. (no need to worry about bumping into something that may be very hot)
    2. Remove belt from alternator by loosening the tensioner pulley.
    3. Unhook any wires or plugs connected to the alternator.
    4. Unscrew any bolts and remove alternator.
    5. Replace alternator with the new one and put bolts back on.
    6. Reconnect any plugs or wires that were disconnected to the right place.
    7. Loosen tensoioner pulley and replace belt.

    This will be harder than it seems on these directions. Difficulty depends on location of the alternator, space to work in the engine compartment, how easily the bolts come out, and of course experience. Good luck.
