Use a 9/16- inch box-end wrench to rotate the tensioner clockwise and release the tension on the belt.
Remove the belt and CAREFULLY release the tensioner.
Route the new belt over the pulleys, again rotating the tensioner to allow the belt to be installed, then release the belt tensioner.
Make sure the belt is properley positioned on each pulley.
Hope this helps you???

I cannot reach pulley bolt on my 2002 saturn any suggestions on how to reach it to replace belt

You have to jack up the right side of the vehicle, remove the right tire and the wheel well covering in order to gain easier access to the right side of your engine compartment in order to change the serpentine belt. I have changed the serpentine belt on my 2002 SC-1 Saturn without doing this, but you have to be very patient because there is only about 2 inches of clearance to work. A long handled box wrench works for me on the tensioner bolt when removing the belt.

I have a 2002 Saturn SL-2 with about 107,000 miles on it. At what mileage point should I replace the timing belt to make sure I don't wait too long for that?

Timing belts typically have a 60,000 mile changing interval meaning yours is now long overdue, if it has never been changed.

I have a 2002 saturn sl2. power steering pully squeals opon cold engine start. Belt looks good, seems to be effected by the fan motor as well.

Check to make sure there is enough tension on the belt. Belt tensioners are pretty common on these to fail. If there seems to be enough tension try taking off the belt and putting it back on so it rotates the other way. If the noise stops replace the belt. Flipping it just helped you confirm it was the belt and not something else.

2002 Saturn Vue V6 AWD sounds like an F1 car when i drive it. Very loud constant noise. Checked trans fluid and it was fine.

I have a 2002 saturn vue. Same thing..sounded like a jet engine ...loud humming as I accelerated . It got increasingly worse. It turned out to be the front wheel bearings. Replace them, now the noise is half as loud...have to do the rears also! 93,000 miles on it. Also, don't forget to replace the timing belt. It it goes too long and breaks, it will trash the engine...

I am replacing a timing belt on Saturn vue 2002 awd v6..which pulley is the tensioner pulley? Does the crank pulley come off or do I need a puller?

only the outside pulley needs to coime off not the cam belt sprocket ,from the sound of it ?? i feel you should entrust this job to the local garage because if you make a mistake you will crunch the valves into the pistons
