The ventures serpentine belt can be removed and replaced by releasing pressure on the tensioner. Just take your large socket wrench and insert the square head into the square slot on the tensioner and use it to release tension on the belt. The tensioner is the triangle-shaped arm located just a bit below the alternator. Carefully remove the old belt and then replace the belt as shown on the diagram located on the belt guard. You can put most of the belt in place before using your wrench again to release the tension and finish putting the belt in place. It helps to have a long wrench. I used a socket extension that I attached to the handle. It took me less than 5 minutes. It was pretty much like resetting the chain on a 10 speed bike.

How long does a serpentine belt last on a 2001 Chevrolet Impala?

Just check every oil flush your serpentine. It could last a long time...and a short time. It depends on a lot of points: wheater, serpentine quality, bearings... When serpentine is about to fail, or, if it seems to be cracked, scratched or any other ...ed, just change it. The answer above is not from a supervisor or team member and should be disregarded. The correct answer would be 35,000 to 40,000 miles. Rule of thumb is 3 cracks per square inch.
