Question about 1997 Saturn SL
If the belt is loose, the tensioner is not doing its job. common problem especially after 10 years. these are sold at parts stores for about 50 bucks. jack up right front, put on stand and pull wheel off. open service port in plastic wheel well liner. there it sits. there is a little map on the radiator support showing how the belt is routed and where you put the long wrench to loosen the tensioner. loosen the tensioner, take off the belt, take out the two bolts, pull the tensioner out, put the new one on and bolt in, put the belt back on, have a confederate put the belt over the tensioner while you hold it back with the long wrench. put the plastic port back on, put the wheel on, lower the car and drive.
a caveman could do it. confused? search on on youtube for same thing and watch someone else do it.
