There will be a diagram of the routing of the belt on the bottom side of the hood. You need to specify what engine you have also. One common thing is the tension pulley, you will need to pry on it to relieve tension in order to put the belt on. Make sure you save the alternator for last as you can get to it a lot easier that the rest.

I need a diagram of a serpitine belt on a 1998 cavalier and will I need to remove any bolts to release it or put on.


You should have a diagram of the belt installation on the radiator support, usually a sticker.
I found your owners manual online but there is no reference to the belt. You may have to buy a Chiilton's or like manual from Orielly's or Autozone to get the pattern. Most serpentine belts use a tensioner and it
has a big bolt in the middle of it that you can put a wrench on and pry it to the side that makes the tensioner loosen off the belt and then slide the belt off the tensioner or other easy to reach pulley. You should nbot have to remove any bolts. That was the whole idea of the sepentine. A tensioner to keep it tight and easy removal and replacement.
Here is the site for the manual.

Change a serpentine belt on a 1996 chevy cavalier


Diagram should be under the hood
The auto tensioneris down low and dificult to get to.
If it has not been changed in a while you will need a long thin push stick and a serpentine tool.
Push on the belt hard at the auto adjuster and pop the belt off the smooth pully (located top).
hook up the serpentine belt tool and then mount the new belt

How do I release the belt tension pully to replace serpentine belt


You can run down to your local auto parts store and buy a serp belt tool. Or you can take a 3/8 drive ratchet, locate the 3/8 square hole in your tensioner and put the ratchet in the hole. For more leverage I put a deep socket over the ratchet handle and put a long 3/8 extention in the deep socket. This will provide ample leverage and will save buying more tools you do not need. Simply move the tensioner to the direction that takes pressure off of the belt.

Water pump replaced


timing belt has nothing to do with changing the water pump and that engine should have a timing chain anyway.... assuming it is the serpentine belt:

there should be a belt tensioner. A pulley that is spring loaded and keeps the belt tight. It wouldn't have any grooves in it like the other pulleys. get a wrench on the center bolt and pull it clock-wise, put the belt on, then release. It is easier to do with two people. make sure you route the belt correctly.
