How do you change the serpentine belt in a 1996 Pontiac firebird?

there should be a routing diagram right under the hood, if not

take a cell phone picture before replacing it so you know how to

route it. You will see a tensioner, something that the belt goes

accross and normally spins when the engine is running, you will

need a 15mm wrench, just stick it on this and pull back, it should

relieve the tension on the belt enough for you to remove the belt,

you will then have to reverse this procedure to put the new belt

on... Should take less than 5 minutes on a V6 because there is

plenty of room, if you have a V8 it will be a little tougher
