There is a pulley that keeps the belt tight and it is spring loaded. you will notice that there is a nut on the front of the pulley. attach a box end wrench on it and pull it away from the belt. be very careful, there is allot of tension on it and it can be a real knuckle buster. once you pull it away from the belt, you should be able to remove it. If you don't have a diagram of the way the belt goes back on, you should probably take a few pictures before you start. good luck...and watch your fingers.

It appears to be right above crankshaft pulley. Your lower radiator hose should go to the pump.

How to change serpintine belt for 97 buick le sabre


These were a real pain in the neck to change, you may want to take it to a shop if you don't have a lot of experience. The hassle of doing it yourself may outweigh the cost.
Here's the procedure, but it is easier said than done:

REMOVAL
  1. Remove the following components.
    1. The engine mounting bracket lower nut.
    2. The engine mounting bracket lower stud.
    3. The engine mounting bracket lower spacer.
  1. Remove the belt.
INSTALLATION

  1. Install the belt. Refer to Engine Mount in order to install the following components:
    • The engine mounting bracket lower nut.
    • The engine mounting bracket lower stud.
    • The engine mounting bracket lower spacer.daves944.gif

How do i bypass the heater core on a 97 buick le sabre


Ok to eliminate having heat in your vehicle and/or replacing a damaged heater core unhook both the 5/8" id hoses going to your heater core then remove them and connect a hose between both outlets to loop them. Newer replacment water pumps have interchangeable outlet fittings which can be removed and plugged with a pipe or drain plug if applicable the same as with your water neck fitting. Connecting the 2 together is a much easier fix

How to replace drive/serpentine belt for '97 buick le sabre 3.8? do u have to remove engine mount/bracket or just engine mount?


You don't have to remove the mount. Go thru the wheel well on the passenger side and remove the motor mount bolt just right of the crank pulley. Then remove the stud that the nut was on. Then remove the sleeve that the stud goes thru. Then you can change the belt.

HOW DO I TIGHTEN THE LOOSE BELT AFTER INSTALLATION ON 97 BUICK LE SABRE? REALLY NEED A DIAGRAM TO MAKE SURE I INSTALLED THE SERPENTINE BELT CORRECTLY.


There may be a diagram imprinted on fan shroud. There is a belt tensioner that tightens the belt. Also when installing belt be sure you have grooved part of belt riding on grooved pulleys. And flat side of belt riding on flat sided pulleys.

How to change a water pump on a 1999 Buick Century 3100?


the water pump on the 3.1 isnt to hard to change ...
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Partially drain the cooling system into a suitable container.
  3. Remove the drive belt guard.
  4. Loosen the water pump pulley bolts before removing the drive belt. This should help keep the pulley from turning as the bolts are loosened.
  5. Remove the drive belt. Remove the water pump pulley bolts and remove the pulley.
  6. Remove the water pump bolts and separate the pump from the engine front cover.

1997 buick le sabre


its the electrical connection at he fuel pump,if this is ok ask if they replaced the strainer on your fuel pump,your fuel pump is inside your gas tank ,you have to drop the tank to service,most fuel pumps are not warrantied if you dont change the strainer,when your car shuts off the sediment on the strainer falls back into the tank,but when you run your car and it sucks up the gas thru the strainer to the pump it clogs the strainer and the fuel pump cant pump,you shoiuld find out if they changed this because your forcing your fuel pump to work harder,was it a new fuel tank or used one that they put in
