We need replace the serpentine belt on a 1998 Buick Lasabre


Easy job on those vehicles. Usually need a wrench that fits over the belt tensioner, and you raise or lower it, taking tension off the belt. then just slip it off the nearest pulley-often the alternator pulley. Now you can let go of the tensioner and remove belt. Notice how it is fit. There should be a diagram on a sticker of how the belt fits on.

Replacing serpentine accessory belt. Is it necessary to remove motor mounting brace to remove and install new serpentine belt?


From my understanding I think you have to remove the motor mount and mount the engine to remove it because I have been asking different mechanics about the serpintine belt on my 1998 Buick Lasabre.

How do you change serpatin belt on 98 buick lesabre with a 3.8 liter engine..it looks like you have to take motor mount loose?


The manual has this step in it: "remove the engine mounting bracket lower nut, stud and spacer. Carefully lower the vehicle."

It never said to raise the vehicle, so I think there is an error here.
However, it is an indication that the belt needs to slip under the motor mount.

Recommend you put a floor jack under the engine, prop it up, remove the mount stud, and lower or raise the engine as needed to get the belt out.

If you don't have a floor jack, you can accomplish the same using the car jack on the regular jack point, jacking it up, and then putting some bricks and 2 by 4s under the pan. Then let the car down until the engine touches. Take the nut off the stud and raise or lower the car as needed to open a gap for the belt to pass thru.

OK? If you have more questions, please let me know.

The volt light comes on then the car stops what can i do?


Replace the alternator and serpentine belt. You can pick up a new alternator at Auto Zone with the serpentine belt and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted.

Diagram for 1998 buick lasabre serpentine belt


I found the diagram in my owner's manual.
I replaced the belt on mine just 2 days ago. All you need to do is remove one bolt from the lower motor mount and remove the spacer. After you relieve the belt tensioner, the belt will slip right through the gap. Don't forget to support the engine before removing the bolt. As a backup I took a photo of the belt with my digital camera beforehand... just in case.
