As crazy as it sounds, I don't see why not. Based on my limited knowledge of a 2002 L200, the power steering is run off the back of the camshaft and the water pump is driven by the timing belt. The only things the serpentine belt runs are the A/C and alternator. Obviously you won't make it very far running without an alternator, but at worst you kill your battery. Serpentine belt on a 2.2l 4 cylinder 2002 L200 has nothing to do with the water pump or power steering pump.

No you cannot drive without the serpentine drive belt. You could drive without the ac belt but not the drive belt. To try could cause damage to the vehicle. So please do not attempt it. If you have any questions please let me know by following up with a comment. If this helped you please feel free to rate the solution. Thanks, Midwest-tek

No you definitely DO NOT want to drive it without the serpentine belt for many reasons. Your alternator will not be charging and your water pump will not be turning which will overheat the engine.
Thank you,

Can the serpentine belt if put on backwards cause the timing belt to jump in any way on a 2003 saturn l300 v6


the serpentine belt has ridges in it, and should only be put on with the ridges facing downward toward the ridges on the pulleys., there is a possibility that the timing could have jumped due to the serpentine belt slipping.

How to replace serpentine belt on SAturn Vue


On the 4cly 2.2 engine you DO NOT need to remove the engine mount. If you remove the right front wheel, there is an access panel held in place by plastic push pins. If you remove this panel, it is very easy to remove the belt by attaching a serpentine belt removal tool to the 3/8" drive hole in the tensioner arm.
