Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
How do I replace the serpentine belt. Need a diagram.
There should be a diagram sticker on the hood or the fan shroud.
You can also draw a diagram before you remove the old belt.
There is a spring loaded tensioner you move over to release pressure on the belt.
I can upload a diagram if you can't find the sticker.

Picture is for the carbureted model but has the same patter as my fuel injected model. It's actually pretty easy to see how it goes. If the pully has groves then the grove side of the belt will fit right in it prefectly. If it's smooth then the back side of the belt with run along it. To loosen the belt tensioner do two things. first in the picture below you will see in the top middle you will see the tensioner. The back of the belt runs along it. You will notice that it looks like a solid peice. loosen the top slighty with i believe a 15mm. After that connect to the pully attached to it and pull back to the passenger side until you can slid the belt off the alternator. put back on in reverse order. really really simple once you do it. good luck
