How do I take out the power steering ump to replace a serpantine belt in a 98 buick park ave?

Vin K or Vin 1 ?
Removal Procedure
The accessory drive belt drives all engine mounted accessories. All driven accessories are rigidly mounted to the engine. Drive belt tension is maintained by a spring loaded belt tensioner. A belt squeak when the engine is started or stopped is normal and has no effect on belt durability. The drive belt tensioner can control belt tension over a broad range of belt lengths; however, there are limits to the tensioner's ability to compensate. Using the tensioner outside of its operating range can result in poor tension control and/or damage to the tensioner.
Important: Ensure that the wood block extends past the width of the oil pan in order to avoid damage.
  1. Use a jack with a block of wood on the jack under the oil pan in order to support the engine.
  2. Remove the engine mount to engine mount bracket nuts.
  3. Remove the engine mount bracket front upper and lower nuts.

Remove the engine mount bracket front upper and lower studs and spacer.
Lower the engine as necessary and rotate the tensioner to remove the drive belt.
Remove the drive belt.

Serpantine belt repair

Some vehicles have a idler arm which takes a 1/2 inch ratchet. You move the idler over to get the tension off the belt;remove,replace. A Dodge is probably like a jeep which has a movable idler. You loosen the hex head bolt in the center of the idler and loosen the bolt running along the side of the same bracket. This moves the idler down to take the tension off the belt. Remove it and make sure to route the new one in the same way. There is usually a diagram on the top of the fan shroud or radiator support to show you the correct routing. Hope this helps.

How do I change the serpantine belt on my dodge magnum (2007)

you need to take the tension off the belt by pressing on the automatic tensioner pulley. once the tension is off the belt can be removed. the new one goes on in reverse. The new one might seem very tight. Wrap the belt around the hardest pulley(s) first
