I don't know if you are in the US but wherever you live, I'm fairly sure you can buy an aftermarket service manual for that car.
In the US, Haynes and Chilton are widely available from larger auto parts stores for <$20 US.
I recommend every driver own one since it will answer many such questions and give you some insurance that a repair shop can't BS you too much.

How do I remove the belt so I can remove the Water Pump?


If you are referring to serpentine belt, Thisis how to do it. Lift the hood and prop it open. Find thelock nut on the serpentine belt and use a wrench to loosen it. Turn the adjustment bolt counterclockwiseto remove the serpentine belt. This bolt is located under the water pump hose.Remember how you remove the belt so that you can reroute the new beltcorrectly. Install the new serpentine belt by securingit on the pulleys in the same route as the old belt. Check the belt routing onthe underside of the hood to make sure you get it right. Create tension in the back of the belt byturning the adjustment bolt clockwise. Check that the belt is on each pulleyproperly. The belt should be centered on each pulley, not on the edge.Tightenthe lock nut to secure the serpentine belt in place.

Trying to find a belt diagram


Most every car in US has a serpentine belt diagram usually on the underside of the hood. (one extra wide long belt only) But could be anywhere under the hood. Look around.

If not serpentine, then you can usually figure it out just by looking at it. Place belts loosely and examine the line up.

Trailblazer serpentine belt diagram


Hi, first, keep this diagram around as you will need it to route the serpentine belt when you reinstall it. There may also be a diagram under the hood by the radiator.

Hi there, I have ust replaced the timig belt on my seat inca van/ vw caddy..... the belt seems to be out and cant find a diagram online wonder if you can tell me what I can do???


Do you mean the serpentine belt? The timing belt is typically found on the inside of t he engine. There is usually a diagram under the hood itself in the area of the serpentine belt that shows its proper routing. Be sure that you route it around the belt tensioner. This is what create the proper tension on the belt.

Serpentine belt


there should be a sticker somewhere under the hood or on the hood (inside) that tells you the proper routing of the belt.
If the a/c belt is seperate and installed on the outside of the pulley and the serpentine belt runs on the inside of the pulley.. yes you have to take it off first.

2003 Jetta tdi serpentine belt


hi doug
im dave
there should be a diagram for the belt somewhere under the hood of your car usually adjacent to the emission (VECI) label near the rad the belt or on the actual hood
the tensioner is automatic adjusting. using a ratchet and the proper size socket rotate the tensioner (usually anticlockwise but youll be able to tell as you turn it) to release tension and slip the belt off of the alternator pulley. be careful not to let go of the tensioner while slipping the belt off or you will hurt your fingers!
