  • There is a bolt and spacer on the lower side of the engine mount housing that needs to be removed and the belt will the go right on. If you are pulling the serpentine wrench one way to no avail try pulling it the other way.

We need replace the serpentine belt on a 1998 Buick Lasabre


Easy job on those vehicles. Usually need a wrench that fits over the belt tensioner, and you raise or lower it, taking tension off the belt. then just slip it off the nearest pulley-often the alternator pulley. Now you can let go of the tensioner and remove belt. Notice how it is fit. There should be a diagram on a sticker of how the belt fits on.

Why cant I get the serpentine belt on to the tensioner pulley?


You either got the wrong parts or you need to move the tensioner just a little bit farther.

SERPENTINE BELT REPLACEMENT


Use a breaker bar to release tension on the serpentine belt at the tensioner pulley, the pulley that pivots unde spring tension to allow the belt to be tight against all of the pulleys.

Remove the belt, and note how it was routed on the various pulleys. Draw a diagram for yourself before removing.

Assembly is a reverse of the removal.

How do i release the tension belt ... cant seem to find bolt being referred to in other docs


Here's the procedure on how to release and replace the tension belt of your car.

Step 1
  • Open the hood on the Volvo S-60 and find the serpentine-belt routing diagram. The diagram should be attached to the top of the fan shroud that covers the radiator. If not, draw out the exact routing method of the serpentine belt around each pulley with a pen and a piece of paper.
  • Step 2 Locate the serpentine-belt tensioner that is in the very center of the engine. The tensioner will have a square bolt head in the center of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 3 Slide the open end of the 5/8-wrench onto the square bolt head in the center of the belt-tensioner pulley. Turn the tensioner pulley counterclockwise and slide the serpentine belt off of the tensioner pulley.
  • Step 4 Remove the serpentine belt from the other pulleys and pull the belt out of the engine compartment.
  • Step 5 Slide the new serpentine belt into the engine compartment and around the crankshaft pulley.
  • Step 6 Route the new serpentine belt around each pulley. Turn the belt-tensioner pulley counterclockwise again and slide the serpentine belt around the tensioner pulley. Release the tensioner and it will tighten the belt around the pulleys. Look over the belt to ensure that it is inside of each pulley.
  • Step 7 Crank the S-60 and look over the serpentine belt with the motor running. Let the engine run for about one minute and shut the engine off. Close the hood.

    How to change serpentine belt on 97 laSabre


    On the underside of the hood or on the radiator shroud there should be a decal showing the routing of the belt for the engine that came in the car. The tensioner pulley (should be designated on the decal) will need to be moved to remove the old one and to reinstall the new.

    How to change a serpentine belt on a 97 buick lasabre?


    1. Remove the belt guard or coolant recovery reservoir as required.
    2. For 1996-99 supercharged engines, perform the following:
      1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
      2. Remove the right-hand splash shield.
      3. Remove the connector from the crank sensor.
    3. For 1996-99 vehicles, remove the engine mounting bracket lower nut, stud and spacer. Carefully lower the vehicle.

    CAUTION To avoid personal injury when rotating the serpentine belt tensioner, use a tight fitting wrench that is at least 24 in. (61cm) long.

    1. Take note of the belt's routing. Lift or rotate the tensioner using a suitable sized breaker bar in the square opening or box end wrench on the pulley nut. Remove the belt from the pulleys.
