Question about 1997 Cadillac Eldorado
You need to pull the tensioner in the opposite direction of the belt side to loosen the belt enough to remove.You should diagram out the way the belt is routed first also.The tensioner is the part that looks like it isn't really attached to anything purposeful and is spring-loaded.It may be a little difficult to move,but you should be able to move it enough to get the belt started off.Good luck!

I replaced Intake Manifold Gaskets this weekend, which is a pain, however the water pump shouldn't be too difficult. Once the serpentine belts is removed, the water pump pulley is just attached with 4 bolts, I think they are either 10mm or 13mm if I remember correctly? They ARE a pain, because the pulley wants to turn, but it's do-able. After that is off, the water pump is pretty easy, roughly 6 or 8 bolts around the perimeter, just make sure the new one goes on the correct orientation, not turned clockwise/counter clockwise. There isn't a BIG difference in the bolt pattern, but it's enough to MAKE a big difference. Get each bolt threaded by hand before cranking them tight.
