The serpentine belt? Or just a plain V-belt.? Oh well, doesn't matter, they both have different tensioners, you have to find the tensioner or the pulley with the tensioner on it, It will look like a bracket with a square hole in it, this will accept a 1/2 drive breaker bar end or ratchet, loosen up the front bolt and torque that baby over to pull the belt tight and tighten it back up. If that isn't it, look for a pulley with a long bolt through the top of it, it will move the pulley up and down to tighten the belt, The lock bolt is in the front of the pulley. If that isn't it, look for a part, power steering pump, alternator, air pump, something that will move to tighten up the belt, Usually the power steering pump will be it, Loosen up the front bolt and pry the pump over to tighten up the belt, lock it back up. And the last place, if you haven't found it by now, will be underneath, it is the same as the pulley tensioner, only the adj is made from below. Now that you are totally confused, I can't think of another place it would be. Those are the most common, on all cars. Hope this helps.

How to route the serpentine belt on a 96 cadillac sls


there should be a diagram under the hood or in your owners manual. if not its always a good idea to have a repair manual and it would include that information. haynes or chilton would be the best and they are usually pretty cheap (10-20 bucks)

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

3.0L Engine
  1. Disconnect the battery negative cable from the battery terminal.
  2. Remove the Pre-volume chamber.
  3. Remove the serpentine drive belt from the generator.
  4. Raise and safely support the vehicle securely on jackstands.
  5. Unscrew the terminal nuts and remove the electrical leads from the generator.

  11. Remove the generator from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Place the generator into the vehicle.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle securely on jackstands.

  4. Install the lower bolt and nut and tighten to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).
  5. Install the upper nut to the generator and AIR injection crossover pipe, and tighten the nut to 30 ft. lbs. (40 Nm).

  9. Install the pre-volume chamber.

On some models, the generator is water-cooled. When this is the case, the repair procedure is as follows:
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the accessory drive belt.
  3. Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
  4. Remove the radiator.
NOTE If your vehicle is equipped with air conditioning, refer to the information regarding the implications of servicing your A/C system yourself. Only an MVAC-trained, EPA-certified, automotive technician should service the A/C system or its components.
  1. Remove the A/C condenser.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle securely.
  3. Disconnect the coolant inlet and outlet hoses from the generator.
  4. Detach the electrical connections from the generator. The regulator, the battery output, and the heated windshield (if equipped) will need to be unplugged.
  5. Remove the generator fasteners from the generator.
  6. Remove the generator from the vehicle.
To install:

Fig. This shows the coolant outlet hose being removed, signified by the "1" in the diagram
  1. Attach the generator to the engine and tighten the fasteners to 37 ft. lbs. (50 Nm).

  3. Tighten the battery output cable to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  4. Reconnect the coolant inlet and outlet hoses to the generator.

How do you put a pulley belt on a 1997 cadillac seville sts


Align belt on track as shown on the sticker on hood or radiator fan housing. There should be a diagram there. Then take a socket and breaker bar and either push down or pull up on the tensioner pulley and put belt on. Once belt is on, release tensioner pulley and you should be good to go.
