Its not that hard . Look at the idler pulley for the belt there is a squire slot troward the front in the middle of the pulley . A 3/8 ths . extentoin for a standerd socket drive fits neatle into it put it on the wrench and push the tenisioner to the center of the engine . This will release the tention on the belt and it will come off. You may have to remove the fan shroud from the radiator and you may want to snap a picture of the belt routing on your cell . And install by pushing the tenisioner again with the new belt . A nd it would be a good idia to replace the tenisioner as well it is a ware part and is likely why your belt went in the first place

Make sure that the belt is fully seated in ALL pulleys, if it still slips off, then you have a pully that is bent, or out of alignment.

My chevy maLIBU ALTERNATOR BELT SPINS THEN STOP CAR WON'T GO ANYWHERE


Vehicles: Chevy (GM) Malibu 2001-2005 3.1L SFI OHV 6-cylinder

Your battery has died since the alternator is not charging it. Jumping the car works to start the engine since the Malibu is using the energy of the second car to start and turn the engine.
Its possible that your belt may not be correctly routed or tensioned.

Check your 3.1L engine accessory drive belt routing. The arrow points in the direction in which the drive belt moves.

Accessory Drive Belt Installation/Removal
GM 3.1L Engine

NOTE
Routine inspection of the belt may reveal cracks in the belt ribs. These cracks will not impair the belt performance. The belt should be replaced if the belt slip occurs if a section of the belt ribs are missing. A single serpentine drive belt is used to drive all engine accessories. All belt driven accessories are rigidly mounted with the belt tension maintained by a spring loaded tensioner. The indicator on the movable portion of the tensioner must be within the limits of the marks of the stationary portion of the tensioner. Any reading outside of these limits indicates either a defective belt or tensioner.

(1) Remove engine mount.
(2) Rotate the drive belt tensioner in a clockwise motion using a breaker bar or serpentine belt tool.
(3) Remove the drive belt.

To install:

(1) Rotate the drive belt tensioner in a clockwise motion using a breaker bar or serpentine belt tool.
(2) Install the drive belt. Connect the serpentine drive belt last to the power steering pulley.
(3) Install engine mount.

How do you change the serpentine belt chevy malibu 200


Well you don't have to remove the tensioner. If you look at it, you'll see a 3/8 square hole in the arm of the tensioner. Put a ratchet wrench, or breaker bar in the hole, and you can move the tensioner, it is only spring loaded. The diagram for how the belt laces in should be on the radiator core support. Lace it for the majority around, move the tensioner, and once you have the belt in line, release the tension on the tensioner arm.

Need step-by-step instructions for installing a serpentine belt on a 6 cyl. 1997 Chevy Malibu.


The path should be listed under the hood on a decal, you will need a breakerbar and apropriate sized socket to compress the idler to put the belt over that pulley... just remember to put the breaker bar through the belt before compressing the idler assembly .
