If you remove a motor mount without a cherry picker or hoist holding the engine in place, you run the risk of crushing yourself under your car. Each motor mount is two separate pieces of metal held together by a fairly large bolt in the middle. One end of one piece is attached to the engine block the other is attached to the frame of the vehicle. But I would suggest not attempting this without someone's help that knows how to do this. If you're not sure where the motor mounts are it leads me to believe that you will either break an expensive part or kill yourself.

Do you need to remove the l/h side motor mount to replace serpentine belt on a 2001 park avenue?


No it is not necessary to remove the motor mount on either the standard 3.8L or the super charged engine. Just remove the tension on the tensioner and remove the belt or belts, both will come off without removing the motor mount.

How to put on the serpentine belt


Hello! I'm not sure if you have the supercharged, or non-supercharged version of the 3.8 liter V6 - so I've posted both for you.

Do i have to disconnect motor mount to replace my drive belt


Depends on the motor. If there is a mount on the passanger side that the belt goes around then yes. Don't fret though, easy to get around. Use a jack and a piece of wood on the oil pan to support the motor so you can remove the motor mount to remove the belt. Again, this is on SOME gm motors not all. On the others the mount isn't in the way at all.

How does the drive belt come off? do I need to remove the lower bolt from the motor mount? looks like it goes though the mount


YES ON THIS (3.8 LITER?) YOU MUST REMOVE THE MOTOR MOUNT TO REMOVE THE SERPENTINE BELT. NOT THE BEST DESIGN THAT I'VE SEEN. HOPE THIS HELPS. GOOD LUCK

one tip - if you look by the crankshaft pulley to the right you will see a tubular looking shaft about 1" diameter , you will notice you can't get the belt out from under this piece , it has a nut on it , once you take the nut off , you will notice it has a star shaped point on the tip of the stud , it requires a reverse torx socket or wrench to remove the stud , when you get the stud out the tube piece it can be removed , then the belt comes off , replace the belt , now comes the tricky part , fitting that tube spacer back into its spot , it can be difficult , once its in place put the stud back in , and put the nut on and tighten it.
