There is a belt tensioner wheel below the alternator pulley. Use a long box-end wrench to rotate the nut on the tensioner wheel CCW (as seen from the passenger side of the vehicle). Using a tie-wrap, bungee cord, string or duct tape, hold the free end of the wrench (now under tension) by connecting it to any available bolt or metal object in the engine compartment. Now the old belt is loose and you have both hands free to remove the old belt and install the new belt. You may need to use a bright light to see what you are doing and a thin metal yard stick to push the belt around the bottom pulleys. When the belt is in place, free up the wrench and release the tension, then remove the wrench.

The 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier 2.2 liter engine drive belt diagram can be found in the owners manual. The belt diagram can also be obtained from most auto-parts stores, when you purchase the belt.

I know on my cavalier which is a 2001 it is possible to re route the serpentine belt away from the air conditioner compressor. I was having trouble with mine popping the belt off. Hope I helped you out.

Never as the 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier does not have a belt, it has a chain that should last the life of the engine.
