"How do you change the serpentine belt oOn both of my Bonnevilles (1996 SE and 1998 SSE), the belt is routed around the front engine mount to get to the air conditioner accessory. Once you turn the tensioner counter-clockwise using I believe 5/8" socket with a 1/2" drive breaker bar, so you have good leverage, you can remove the belt from the accessories. The front engine mount has three legs that connect to the front of the engine (on the passenger side of the car). You have to unscrew the lowest of the three mounting points (easiest done from the under side of the car, with the plastic shielding moved out of the way), which is right next to the crankshaft pully. Then there is a round tube spacer in between the engine block and this leg of the engine mount that you take out, and you can pull the belt out through there.

Bolt can also be removed through the right front wheel well with wheels turned far to the right.

To change the serpentine belt on a 2003 Pontiac Bonneville, loosen the tensioner pulley and remove the old belt. The tensioner pulley is the wheel in the belt system that has a bolt through the middle in a slot that can be adjusted. Put the new belt on and tighten up the pulley.
