2003 galant serpentine belt replacement

My daughter just bought a 03 galant, had it for 10 days and calls me to tell me it just died and won't do anything when she turns the key. I had her lift the hood and sure enough no alternator belt, how hard is it to replace? Do I need a jack for the engine? Any help is appreciated

Pick up a belt at you local auto parts store you wont need a jack just a couple of metric wrenches and a rachet. under the hood will be the routing for the belt . follow it exactly. make sure all the pulleys spin . they all will except the crank. if any other one doesnt spin you found the reason the belt broke. let me know if you cant find the diagram ill send it to ya.
hope this helps

I got a new serpentine belt and now my car wont shift into gears... why is that? why would my transmission slip like that after i just bought a brand new belt

  • The replacement of the serpentine belt won't have any effect on the transmission. It will effect the ability of the engine to function properly if you happened to put the belt on wrong. Check the diagram below and double check your routing of the belt. If your belt is on properly AND it is the proper size and you think your transmission is slipping you want to check your transmission fluid level and perhaps consider servicing the transmission filter for starters.

Need to replace serpentine belt but timing belt is blocking my way. How do I remove timing belt?

serpentine belt comes first and then timing belt which is inside the motor.I think you have got the name of your belts the other way around.
