Trying to R & R the serpentine belt on a 1999 Olds Delta 88. The belt is routed arond a motor mount. Do I have to jack the motor and disconnect it from the motor mount in order to remove and replace...


yes you do. place a floor jack under engine with a block of wood on top of jack to protect the engine, put just enough pressure on jack to steady engine. remove motor mount, then jack up engine a bit to take belt off. replace the belt then lower jack and attach the mount. on the mount only the outside bolts need to come off to raise engine. do not remove from engine side unless you are changing it or its bad, be carefull when raising engine, pick it up from a sturdy place, not the oil pan. have a good day !!

Do you have to remove motor mount to change the belt


jeffriesa97, You fail to mention what size your engine is here but I will take you through the procedure. If your belt goes over and under the motor mount then yes you will have to remove it first. The motor will have to be supported first. Place a piece of wood on a floor jack and place it under the oil pan. Raise the jack until you see the engine come up a little. Remove the engine mount. I believe they are 15MM bolts holding it in. You may have other things attached to the mount. Remove these and set aside. Check your belt tensioner to see if it returns to it's original position before you put the new one in. If it sticks then either lubricate it or replace it. Reverse the procedure for replacement. Good luck with this.

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.

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.

Fan Belt replacement


Sort of, look at the belt closely before you remove it to make sure the belt is not looped through the motor mount. On some makes there is a motor mount that is attached to the sidewall of the vehicle and this mount must be removed to remove and reinstall the belt, otherwise, yes it is that simple. Make sure you know how the belt goes back on. There should be a diagram under the hood for the belt routing. Or you can grab a sheet of paper and draw it yourself. If you do attempt to change it and the motor mount must be removed, you have to support the engine weight with a jack before removing the mount. Be careful and please let me know if this was helpful.
