    I hesitated to use a socket and standard 16" breaker bar on the bolt in the center of tensioner for fear of breaking the bolt off and a five point wrench is not long enough to give you the leverage you need to move the heavy spring thats in the tensioner. Is that bolt strong enough to hold the stress and pressure leverage that will be applied ??

Firt - study & write down (draw) the belt path,,
and be sure about it..

Then - put a wrench on the nut in the center of the tension pully.. Move the tension pully to loosen the belt.. Pull belt off..

Repeat to put new one on..

Should be pretty easy..

97 Buick Park Ave. Non-Ultra. Mileage 200K. Was squeaking at morning cold start for about 5 to 10 min. Replaced Serpentine Belt, belt tensioner, alternator, and PCV Valve. STILL squeaking at cold start....


How's your engine coolant level? If you've got a water pump leaking coolant, your belt will squeak, as the pump will leak the coolant directly onto the belt. You'll see the spray pattern under the hood if it's been going on for a while.

1979 buick im not sure if it was a park ave or a 5th ave but i need a diagram on how the power steerign and altantor belt goes on i forgot which one goes in forn of the other i replaced the water pump but...


A park Ave. is a Buick and a 5th Ave. is a Chysler the Buick can have 3 different engines so I need to know which engine. The cysler 5th Ave. is a 318 400 or 440 the buick is a 455 350 olds or a 350 chev or a 350 buick. 3.8 buick. The 8th number in the VIN will tell your parts store guy and he shoul be able to prvide the belts and the picture of how they go on. Sometimes the picture is on the fan shrould and sometimes it's on the package the belt comes in ( some gates belts that only fit your car.
