Who told you you had to remove an engine mount bolt. I replaced a serpentine belt on a mercury grand marquis and it i was just a matter of relieving the tension on the tensioner pully and positioning the new belt back on. I actually used my waistbelt(yes the belt on your pants) as a "rope" to pull the new belt up and over the last pully. it is easier when two people work on it but i was by myself. Your engine compartment should have a diagram of how your belt goes in case you forget to pay attention to that.

We need replace the serpentine belt on a 1998 Buick Lasabre


Easy job on those vehicles. Usually need a wrench that fits over the belt tensioner, and you raise or lower it, taking tension off the belt. then just slip it off the nearest pulley-often the alternator pulley. Now you can let go of the tensioner and remove belt. Notice how it is fit. There should be a diagram on a sticker of how the belt fits on.

Replacing serpentine accessory belt. Is it necessary to remove motor mounting brace to remove and install new serpentine belt?


From my understanding I think you have to remove the motor mount and mount the engine to remove it because I have been asking different mechanics about the serpintine belt on my 1998 Buick Lasabre.

How to replace drive/serpentine belt for '97 buick le sabre 3.8? do u have to remove engine mount/bracket or just engine mount?


You don't have to remove the mount. Go thru the wheel well on the passenger side and remove the motor mount bolt just right of the crank pulley. Then remove the stud that the nut was on. Then remove the sleeve that the stud goes thru. Then you can change the belt.

Need diagram for a Serpinetine belt for a 1998 Buick LaSabre


I can get a picture for you. You will need to take loose a hidden bolt and remove a sleeve from the motor mount to replace the belt. Feel under the bottom arm of the mount and you will feel a nut, I believe it is 18mm. Remove the bolt and screw and then the sleeve. Let me know if you need a picture for routing.

How do I change the serpentine belt on a 1998 Buick LeSabre, 3.8


My friend;
Try this;
  1. Check the belt pulley may have attaching tension bolts (Nuts), etc.
  2. Loose the belt pulley attaching tension bolts (Nuts), etc.
  3. Normally there are three bolts & or nuts u need to loose to allow u swivel the pulley side way.
  4. Once loose, swivel the pulley side way.
  5. Mostly, you don't have to remove the bolts & or nuts completely.
  6. You may need to remove other serpentine belt to reach the power steering belt.
  7. Removing those other belts work same as the power steering belts or other belts.

Diagram for 1998 buick lasabre serpentine belt


I found the diagram in my owner's manual.
I replaced the belt on mine just 2 days ago. All you need to do is remove one bolt from the lower motor mount and remove the spacer. After you relieve the belt tensioner, the belt will slip right through the gap. Don't forget to support the engine before removing the bolt. As a backup I took a photo of the belt with my digital camera beforehand... just in case.

Serpentine belt


You actally have to take the Motor Mount off. The way I did it was to remove the Front Right Wheel and the Plastic Guard. There you will see the Motor Mount and the Bolt that needs to be removed. Once removed, the melt piece betwee the bracket and engine pops out. Then you can replace the belt and put everything back together.
