Do you mean serpentine? If so yea you can with a long boxed end wrench and some muscle. Find the tensioner pully and turn it where it turns toward the center of your engine to get slack and replace. Just turn the wrench back and you should be in business.

My main belt broke while driving home, had car towed home we replaced the belts and car will not turn over its as if low battery but used another working battery so what else could it be


/mm.
What type of vehicle? Which type of belts?('V-belts or the wider (~1inch) multi-grooved Serpentine belt)
Your broken belt may have hit something when it broke. Does it click-click-click, or no responce to 'start' possition at key?
Might have knocked large battery cable, or small starter wire loose (or cut it 'open'), or some ground-wire, or ignition wire, or module/harness connector loose.

Watrpump replacment


the water pump is located on the side of the engine block where the cam belt is .its a straightforward job but again its a physically hard job as the cam belt and auxiliary belt need to be removed .and you will loose all your coolant .then the timing will need to be set up .when your car is due for a cam belt { its always worth replacing the water pump on any car }as its such a pain trying to change the pump again ..if you are thinking of doing this yourself ..I would think again ..it is beyond the scope of a DIY mechanic from the point of view you will nned a ramp and even if you a good home mechanic I doubt that you will have a 2 post ramp!

What happens if the drive belt breaks


if a drive belt breaks, the debris can interfere with other engine components and do additional damage. rule of thumb belt life is 6yrs or 60000 miles. the belts operate critical engine systems ( alt, water pump, power steering pump) not something to short cut on. belts are noisey when cold due to additional load from battery use when starting or cold fuuids. have belts and tensioners checked for wear and correct operation

1997 nissan sentra serpentine belt


The serpentine belt has nothing to do with the brakes. It does have something to do with the alternator which charges the battery. the burning smell is probably the result of wasted grooves on the underside of the belt. it is the belt you see just inside the car engine compartment that turns the AC unit compressor pully , the alternator, etc.it is connected to the crankshaft pully.. If you have a front wheel drive it is located on the side of the engine compartment.

Water Pump Replacement


Follow your fan belt - it goes around the water pump pulley. Can be done at home with a little mechanical abilty and tools - not real fun - some of the bolts are a little hard to get to
