Question about GMC K1500
OK, you need to be careful if you have to ask this. Serpentine belts use a large tensioner.
You can flex this tensioner with a breaker bar and a socket in order to get the belt back on.
After that, the tensioner regulates the belt, no other work needs to be done. Please note.
THE TENSIONER CREATES A GREAT DEAL OF PRESSURE ON THE BELT.
If you get your finger between a pulley and the belt and release the tensioner, you could loose a finger.
A novice mechanic can do a replacement just have someone with you incase you oops.
Here is a YouTube video of replacement. This guy uses a crescent wrench but I prefer a breakerbar.
