    Put a socket and bar, or a suitable spanner on the center bolt of the tensioner and turn it clockwise as though you're trying to tighten the bolt.

    The tensioner will begin to move against spring tension.

    There should be a small hole in the aluminium body of the tensioner which should align with a corresponding hole behind it once it is fully released. Put a drill bit or a hex key or the like through the hole so that it holds the tensioner in the released position, and you can now quite easily fit the belt according to the routeing on the above diagram.

    Once you have fitted the belt and ensured it is sitting nice and evenly on all the pulleys, remove the drill bit or hex key and the tensioner will spring into action and tension the belt.

Diagram for how to put on a serpant belt

I've found many serpantine belt diagrams to be located on a small diagram, most times on a sticker, posted on the frame right near the hood prop area or sometimes it is posted on the underneath of the vehicle's hood itself.

My 2003 sunfire has no serpantine belt diagram

hello bert... that diagram is usually on a sticker under the hood, though sometimes on the front engine brace, or even on a small plastic tab directly covering the belt. If for some reason a belt-routing diagram is not present in the motor cavity, create your own diagram by drawing circles for the pulleys and how the belt routes around them.

Just in case it isn't there, here is the diagram:

2001 Saturn SL1 serpantine belt change

This is an easy job. I found that it is easier if you have someone help you. Raise and support vehicle and remove pass. tire & inner fender splash shields. There are two clips ( one on each half ). Once the shields are removed you can access the tensioner easily ( 14mm ). There should be a diagram of how the belt is routed on the rad. support.Hold back the tensioner and remove the old belt. Install is reverse of removal.
