You shouln't have to.
It may take a little longer to remove and a lot of patience.
If Alternator, or AC or power steering in the way, take them off the engine and put to one side, DO NOT disconnect the AC, just remove if in the way

Supercharger


It is all about what you need to pull out to get to it comfortably. It may be possible to take your wheel off on the side that it is on and reach it from under the car.

2004 pontiac grand prix supercharger make a whining noise power streering is full


Hello
All superchargers get pretty noisy make sure that the supercharger is full small allen head inspection plug next to the supercharger pully, the next thing to do would be to remove the supercharger belt and start it and see if the whinning goes away if it does then it is the supercharger making the noise. I wouldn't rule out any of the other pulleys making the noise remove the other belt and make sure that all of the other pulleys spin freely and make no noise when you spin them by hand.
Good luck

Im going to have to change my serpentine belt on a 96 buick park avenue. 3800 non supercharged. Looked at it yesterday and it looks like I have to unbolt motor mount to get the belt off? Is there an easier...


yes.that is the only way.You have to unbolt the motor mount. To replace the serpentine belt on a V6 3800 series non-supercharged motor, you must jack up the motor and remove a motor mount. Before going any further make sure that the factory belt diagram sticker is still somewhere under the hood; if not, make a detailed diagram of the path of the belt. You must then use a breaker bar with a socket (I believe 13/64") and pull it toward the front of the car to release the belt tensioner. Put the new belt on, tighten it, put the mount back on, and lower the jack. Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Engine noise on 1995 Buick Riveria SC 3.8 L V6


remove the supercharger belt... check for play in the supercharger pulley... there is a plastic coupler that connects drive from the supercharger cone to the main body of the supercharger... these wear out ... it is a problem on both the series 1 (1995) and series 2 (96-99) supercharged 3800 engines

these motors have two carrier pulleys and oone tensioner. lookinjg at the motor from the rightside of car the belt goes as follaws: crank pully to super charger from the left. the right side goes up to the lower carrier which will have the flat of the belt riding on it. from there the belt routes to the upper carrier
[ loop it over so the grooves ride
] and then under the tensioner any questions contact goldenvegasart@gmail.com

These cars have a lot of problems with all the idler pulleys and the tensioner. You will most likely have to replace them.You may also want to check the harmonic balancer and make sure it is running true.Spin the supercharger by hand with the belt off,it should spin freely with no end play in the shaft to speak of.I hope this helps...Dan
