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.

Im going to have to change my serpentine belt on a 96 buick park avenue. 3800 non supercharged. Looked at it yesterday and it looks like I have to unbolt motor mount to get the belt off? Is there an easier...


yes.that is the only way.You have to unbolt the motor mount. To replace the serpentine belt on a V6 3800 series non-supercharged motor, you must jack up the motor and remove a motor mount. Before going any further make sure that the factory belt diagram sticker is still somewhere under the hood; if not, make a detailed diagram of the path of the belt. You must then use a breaker bar with a socket (I believe 13/64") and pull it toward the front of the car to release the belt tensioner. Put the new belt on, tighten it, put the mount back on, and lower the jack. Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How to change a serpentine belt


This SHOULD be how it's done, but not so on the 90's Park Aves.
With this 3.8 L V-6, you have to remove the motor mount on the side of the engine--and without the proper tools it's about a $290 job for the dealer.

Serpentine belt


You do not need to remove the mount, but one of the bolts on the lower portion of it. You will need to remove the 15mm nut, then the stud comes out with a reverse torx bit. The collar in between the mount will come out with some work. Then you can remove the belt with the mount still in place.

Installing the serpentine belt


The power steering pump is only held on by two bolts that are removed thru the pulley holes. Anyway you don't have to remove the whole motor mount just remove the nut that holds the mount just to the left of the balancer. then remove the stud with a inverted torx bit. then remove the sleeve the stud went thru and then the belt will come off.

Driving without a belt can cause the motor to overheat, will cut power steering, and will not recharge the battery, so you should probably get a tow
Good Luck
