How do you replace the serpentine belt on a 1995 Buick century 4 cylinder?


This is the advertised procedure:

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Except Serpentine Belt
It may be necessary to loosen more than one pulley or remove another belt to access the drive belt, such as the power steering and air conditioning.
  1. Loosen the driven accessory's pivot and mounting bolts.
  2. Move the accessory toward or away from the engine until there is enough slack in the belt to slip it over the pulley of the driven accessory.
  3. Remove the belt from the engine.
  4. Install the new belt and move the accessory toward or away from the engine until the tension is correct. You can use a wooden hammer handle as a lever, but do not use anything metallic.
  5. Adjust the belt tension, then tighten the bolts.
Serpentine Belt
  1. Place a tool over the tensioner pulley axis bolt.
  2. Rotate the tool counterclockwise to relieve belt tension.
  3. Remove the drive belt.
  4. Carefully release the tensioner pulley and remove the tool.
To install:
  1. Route the belt over the pulleys, except tensioner.
  2. Place tool over tensioner, rotate counterclockwise and install belt.
  3. Remove the tool, then check alignment of tension and belt.

I need a routing diagram for a 1999 Buick Century. and does it have a tensioner?


all cars that have a serpentine belt have tensioners the belt routing should be on a sticker on the cover or metal bar above the radiator,sometimes they have put on a belt cover at the front upper pulley showing the routing.if it is missing you can go to a parts store or a the dealer to look at the routing of the belt,better yet if you draw the routing on a piece of paper before you take it off also works

How do you replace the serpertine belt on a 1999 Buick Century with a 3.1 liter engine?


These belts are very easy to change. Before you start draw the diagram of how the belt is routed. Once you have the routing, there is a spring loaded tension er pulley. You will need to pry it over to get the belt off. Then once you get the belt off, then put the new belt on all of the pulleys. Once it is on all of the pulleys. Pry the tension er and put it back on that pulley.
PLEASE RATE! A lot of free questions don't get answered. So PLEASE click the 4 thumbs up!
Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!

I have a buick century 1997 that needs a new fan belt. Can I do it myself, and how do i do it?


This car should have an electric fan. Maybe you mean a new serpentine belt. Yes you can do it yourself. There is a tensioner that you have to loosen the tension on the belt. The old one will come right off and the new one will go right back on. You will have to loosen the tensioner again to get the new one on. It is a pretty easy job. Make sure you draw a diagram of how the old belt is routed.

How to change a belt on a 1995 Buick Century


A listing of serpentine belt diagrams can be found HERE. It will show you the location of the tensioner pulley, which must be loosened in order to remove and install the new belt. When the new belt is on, just readjust the tension via the tensioner pulley.
