There is a spring loaded belt tensioner that you have to move back using a wrench so you can get the belt back on. It's rare for these belts to come off without a good reason so check all the pulleys to make sure none of them are locked up or damaged in a way that would cause the belt to derail or your belt may come off again.

LOOSE BELT MORE LIKELY YOU HAVE A BAD BELT TENSIONER.A BAD BELT TENSIONER WILL CAUSE BELT TO SLIP.WHEN THAT HAPPENS ALTERNATOR CANT SPIN FAST ENOUGH TO KEEP BATTERY CHARGE.AND IF YOUR WATER PUMP DONT SPIN FAST ENOUGH ENGINE WILL OVERHEAT AND YOU WILL HAVE POWER STEERING PROBLEMS ALSO HAVE DRIVE BELT TENSIONER CHECK OUT AT A GARAGE..

How to set timing on a 99 olds mobile alero?


If you are going to do a timing belt job you should get a book. Along with timing you will need to torque specs. Most parts stores sell manuals for $20.

Yes it does because the belt is what allows all the individual pullies to rotate so without a belt the Alternater doesn't spin so the battery doesn't charge and the power steering pump doesn't rotate as for the belt diagram it should have a sticker showing the diagram on the radiator support or on the underside of the hood
