Removal & Installation - 3.8L Engine

L32 Engine
1. Rotate the drive belt tensioner using a 15-mm box end wrench on the pulley nut.
2. Remove the drive belt.
After the new drive belt is installed, make sure that the mark on the drive belt tensioner is within range, as indicated on the tensioner housing.

3. To install, lift or rotate the drive belt tensioner using a 15-mm box end wrench on the pulley nut.
4. Install the drive belt. Make sure the drive belt is properly routed. Make sure the drive belt tensioner is operating properly.

L67 Engine
The supercharged 3800 engine utilizes two drive belts. The outer drive belt drives the supercharger. The inner drive belt drives the following components:
Power steering pump
Water pump

Air conditioning compressor All driven accessories rigidly mount to the engine. Spring-loaded belt tensioners maintain the drive belt tension. Each drive belt has its own tensioner. A drive belt squeak, occurring when the engine starts or stops, is normal and has no effect on the durability of the drive belt. The drive belt tensioner can control the drive belt tension over a broad range of drive belt lengths, due to stretching. However, there are limits to the tensioner's compensation ability. Poor tension control and/or damage to the tensioner may occur after using the tensioner outside of its operating range. Replace the drive belt when this occurs.

1. Lift or rotate the supercharger drive belt tensioner using a 15 mm box end wrench on the pulley nut.
2. Remove the supercharger drive belt.
3. Lift or rotate the drive belt tensioner using a 15 mm box end wrench on the pulley nut.
4. Remove the drive belt.
5. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Hope helps with this.

After reinstalling the serpentine belt on a 2004 Chevy impala LS 3.8lt motor, is there a way to adjust the belt tension.

With a non sc
one belt. If you have sc that show two belts.
The picture is non sc. If the new belt is too loose, maybe the tensioner has a problem or you got the wrong belt? Check the accessory pulleys/bearings, see if any movement, the wrong way.

Replace water pump belt on a 3.8 chevy impala

You will have to 'untension' the serpentine belt first. Then to reinstall, put the belt on then loosen or 'untension' the belt tensioner. Very simple process. The belt tensioner is the first thing and the last thing you touch when changing the belt. The tensioner will apply tension to the belt after install.
