You know, I replaced alot of these and seen that on the directions. And yet they do not put a mark on the new belt. I have looked these things over and found know way to tell. So I just put them on. I have never had one come back. May I also recommend that since your already in there, that you replace all the timing components and the water pump too, if it's in there.You don' want to go back in a couple of months from now.
Unplug the motor wiring, remove the bolts holding the motor bracket (4 I think) remove the hoses from the pump and lift the motor and pump out. Remove the 3 screws on the pump and separate from the motor. Put the belt on the pulley and replace the pump. Slide the motor and pump back in with the belt attached, but don't put the 4 bolts on until you put the belt over the tub pulley. Then put them in and plug the wiring back onto the motor.
That should do it!
The basic process to change that pulley is to first loosen and remove the serpentine belt. Make a diagram on paper of the belt path, if there isn't one under the hood on a decal.This is done by putting either a wrench or ratchet on the tensioner, and rotating it away from the direction that it applies pressure to the belt. There is either a square hole to put a ratchet in, or a hex head to attach a wrench. Once you get the belt slipped back, examine the belt to see if it needs replaced. The tensioner assembly is held to the engine with a couple bolts, and can now be removed and replaced. Reinstall the new or old belt, and the last step is to rotate the new tensioner back and slip the last section of belt under it.
It may be a bit corroded on the long bolt that is the pivot bolt. Just put a bar or large screwdriver between the alternator and the engine and pry it (making sure both bolts are plenty loose), or pry it toward the engine with whatever will give you leverage if you don't have the belt off. It will come, don't be afraid of it. If you make no progress let me know by comment.
This will work.
You better have the alterntor checked, you said the battery was putting out 12v. was that with the car running or off? If it was running, it should have pushing between 14 and 15 volts, if it wasn't with it running, replace alternator.
