Hi,
There's a tensioner pulley at the front/middle of the engine. It's the little wheel between the power steering pump and the alternator - the belt runs on the underside of it. You have to get a wrench or ratchet on the center nut of this pulley, and rotate it counterclockwise until you can slip the belt off. It is a lot of force, so having a helper could be good if you need both arms.

There should be a label showing the belt routing somewhere under the hood. If not, it helps to take a photo of the belt routing beforehand,

    No. That nut is left-hand threaded. Clockwise will loosen it.

My 95 buick le sabre needs new front speakers but i cant figure out how to get off the front plastic piece


the door speakers?
there is one screw near the handle to open door, there is a screw on the outer edge of the door panel, you pop off the switch cluster and there is 2 screws in there, the door panel will have clips that hold it on, gently pull to pop them loose, the speaker is at bottom right, if you have concert sound II there is also a tweeter above the speaker

HOW DO I TIGHTEN THE LOOSE BELT AFTER INSTALLATION ON 97 BUICK LE SABRE? REALLY NEED A DIAGRAM TO MAKE SURE I INSTALLED THE SERPENTINE BELT CORRECTLY.


There may be a diagram imprinted on fan shroud. There is a belt tensioner that tightens the belt. Also when installing belt be sure you have grooved part of belt riding on grooved pulleys. And flat side of belt riding on flat sided pulleys.

Loosen the serpintine belt on 95 buick lesabre


I'm sure you got it figured out by now, but I just did this today. the belt can be given slack by placing a ratchet on the belt tension pulley (the smaller one located to the left of the alternator) and applying counterclockwise pressure. This will give you enough slack to remove the belt. It is helpful to draw a little diagram of the belt configuration, so when you put on the new one, you get all the directions right.
