I don't have the figure for your car, but the below figure shows how to remove the A/C belt.
the other belts should have a simple slot in the bracket for adjusting. If you have more questions, let us know.

  1. Disconnect the negative (-) battery cable.
  2. Drain the cooling system.

CAUTION When draining engine coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted to ethylene glycol antifreeze and could drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or is several years old.

  1. Disconnect the upper radiator hose at the elbow and then position it out of the way.
  2. Remove the right side engine under cover.
  3. Loosen the power steering pump and the air conditioning compressor and then remove the drive belts.
  4. Remove the water pump pulley.
  5. Matchmark the crank angle sensor to the upper front cover and the remove it. Carefully position it out of the way.
  6. Position a floor jack under the engine and raise it just enough to support the engine.
  7. Remove the upper engine mount bracket at the right side of the upper front cover.
  8. Remove the upper front cover.
  9. Align the timing marks on the camshaft pulley sprockets and then remove the crankshaft pulley.

The crankshaft pulley may be reached by removing the side cover from inside the right-hand wheel opening.
  1. Remove the lower front cover.
  2. Loosen the tensioner pulley nut to slacken the timing belt and then slide off the belt.

To install:
Do not bend or twist the timing belt. NEVER rotate the crankshaft and camshaft separately with the timing belt removed. Be sure the timing belt is free of any oil, water or debris.
  1. Install the crankshaft sprocket with the sprocket plates.
  2. Before installing the timing belt, ensure that the No. 1 piston is at TDC of the compression stroke (all sprocket timing marks will be in alignment with the marks on the case).

When the timing belt is on and in position, there should be 39 cogs between the timing mark on each of the camshaft sprocket and 48 cogs between the mark on the right camshaft sprocket and the mark on the crankshaft sprocket.
  1. Loosen the timing belt tensioner pulley nut.
  2. Temporarily install the crankshaft pulley bolt and then rotate the engine two complete revolutions.

Fabricate and install a suitable 25mm thick spacer between the end of the crankshaft and the head of the crankshaft pulley bolt to prevent bolt damage.
  1. Tighten the tensioner pulley bolt to 16-22 ft. lbs. (21-30 Nm).
  2. Install the upper and lower front covers.
  3. Install the crankshaft pulley with its washer and tighten it to 105-112 ft. lbs. (143-152 Nm).
  4. Install the engine mount bracket.
  5. Install the water pump pulley. Install the crank angle sensor so that the matchmarks made previously line up and tighten the bolts to 61-70 inch lbs. (7-9 Nm).
  6. Install all drive belts and adjust.
  7. Install the right side engine under cover.
  8. Reconnect the radiator hose and refill the radiator.
  9. Connect the battery cable and start the engine. Check engine timing and for any leaks. Road test.

Head lights dim and lose power steering when at low speed light stop sign or parking

The most common cause of these problems is a loose slipping fan belt. For most cars the belt is held tight by a tension-er. This is a pulley that is spring loaded. Usually the tension-er applies the force to the back side of the belt. Tension-er has been known to stick and not flex with the belt allowing the belt to slip. Also if the belt is worn it can slip. Another possibility is that one of the accessories, on the belt circuit are having trouble rotating prohibiting the belt to operate freely. Careful inspection of the belt will determine its condition. With the hood open listen to the motor at idle and the sound of a squeaking belt is an indication that the belt is slipping. To test for the tension-er with the engine off try tapping in the direction of tightening the belt on the tension-er with a rubber mallet. Start the engine and observe if the condition is still the same. If it has corrected the problem than the tension-er either needs to be cleaned or replaced.

How do you replace the serpertine belt on a 1999 Buick Century with a 3.1 liter engine?

These belts are very easy to change. Before you start draw the diagram of how the belt is routed. Once you have the routing, there is a spring loaded tension er pulley. You will need to pry it over to get the belt off. Then once you get the belt off, then put the new belt on all of the pulleys. Once it is on all of the pulleys. Pry the tension er and put it back on that pulley.
PLEASE RATE! A lot of free questions don't get answered. So PLEASE click the 4 thumbs up!
Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!

Serpentine belt replacement

You will only need to locate the fan belt diagram to replace it on correctly and a 1/2 breaker bar or ratchet to back off the tension er while replacing belts check the tension-er bearing if it feels ruff when you turn it replace it. Check water pump also to see if it turns smooth same with the alt.
