The leSabre has a three point motor mount. The belt runs through the middle. The lower mount is a light brace; it doesn't seem to really support much.

The mount is a spacer tube a couple inches long. It's held in place by a stud. Remove the stud and the space tube comes out and the belt comes through that opening!!!

Jack up the right side of the car. Pull the plastic splash shield out of the way and prop it with something. You might want to take the wheel off and lower the jack some. There's nut around the stud. Then the end of the stud has a torx male end. Requires female torx socket. I don't recall the size. Check yours out since it's two years earlier, it may have a different setup.

The suggestion is to support the engine lightly when removing that stud. You're not supposed to use a piece of wood lightly under the oil pan, but some do. I saw someone raise the left side of the car slightly to support the motor. They left the wheel in place not jacket up.

    Just be sure you get the belt lined up properly on all the pulleys and placed in the correct grooves before starting the car

The belt goes around the crank pulley, up the left side to the alternator, wraps around the power steering pump and down to the tensioner pulley, back up onto the alternator, then down and around the inside of the water pump. Not between the motor mount and the pulley.

If you have AC it goes from the alernator to the AC compressor, then back up to the water pump and down to the crank.

Remove the lower bolt on the engine mount housing, then remove the spacer. The belt will slip right through.
