This is an easy job. There is a small spring-loaded idler pulley that maintains the proper tension on the belt. To remove the belt, you must first relieve tension on this pulley. Do this by inserting a ๏ฟฝ drive ratchet or breaker bar into the center of the idler pulley and apply enough pressure to slip the belt off. Before removing, pay close attention to how the belt snakes around all the pulleys. There should be a diagram in the engine compartment, near the hood latch. If not, sketch it before removing the belt. Reinstall the belt in accordance with the diagram. It is easier if you do the idler pulley last.

You can't, the serpentine belt (or fan belt) on a grand marquis is equiped with a self tensioner, if your belt is making noise it either needs to be replaced or one of the pulleys on the cars may be loose and would need to be replaced.

Engine used a serpentine belt, with a spring-loaded tensioner. You cannot tighten the belt. If the belt is slipping, either one of the driven components is going bad and dragging the belt, or the tensioner is bad.

The belt tensioner is rotated clock wise with a 15 mm wrench or belt tool.

You will need to loosen the tensioner pulley on your 1994 Pontiac Grand Am. The old serpentine belt will come loose and can be removed. Put the new serpentine belt on and tighten the tensioner pulley.

You don't repair a serpentine belt. You replace the worn or broken belt with a new one.

You can change the serpentine belt by loosening the tensioner pulley. When the tensioner pulley is loose and the serpentine belt will become loose. Put the new serpentine belt on and tighten the tensioner pulley.

The serpentine belt pattern for a 1998 3.5L Isuzu Trooper can be obtained from the car manufacturer upon inquiry. Isuzu is responsible for this information.
