My serpentine belt broke and now i dont know how to put a new one back on

buy a new serpentine belt and refer to the diagram on the box. it will show you how to route the belt. also, there is a belt tensioner. it can be pulled back with a large prybar so you can slip the belt on the pulley.

I need a belt routing diagram for a 2000 ford taurus 24v dohc engine. Know where I can find one on the web? (No sticker under the hood. And I was dumb enough not to pay attention when I took it off.)

OK, one doesn't need a belt routing diagram to reinstall a new belt.

Just route the belt so that one by one you put the ribbed part of the belt up against the ribbed pulleys, and the smooth part of hte belt up against the smooth pulleys. Do this until one arrives at the tensioner and release tension with a breaker bar to put the belt on the final tensioner pulley.

Check that the tensioner has enough spring load for the belt to maintain the right friction against all of the serpentine pulleys.

That's all there is to it.

Belt broke that drives the water pump and alternator on my 88 plymouth reliant. another belt in the way, and cant figure out how to get the new belt on.

You can loosen the alternator that should releive the tension on the belt.
When you tighten it again make sure you can only turn the belt 90 degrees then you know you have the right tension.

Alternator belt fell off

You may have to buy a new belt because that one may have stretches. After you buy a new belt. Look at he alternator, it has two screws, one hold it in place and the other allow it ti move. Lose both a little. With a pry bar push the alternator so the belt can fit. Look for the belt routing diagram in the engine compartment. Follow it and put the belt on. You were suppose to have a belt tension tool to determine the tension. Then use your pry bar to move the alternator to position and tension then tightened alternator screws.

How do you change a serpentine belt on a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero?

Brute force - you have to pry up the tensioner pulley. The way we did it was put the belt over the alternator and A/C compressor, and get it back in place around the main bearing pulley. Then we took a bar and forced up the tensioner and slid the belt over the main bearing pulley. Voila . . .
