How do you install a serpentine belt on a 1998 Chevy Pickup truck?

First, get a new serpentine belt. There is a de-tensioning

wrench that you can borrow from Kragen Auto Parts, or Pep Boys.

This wrench is at least 3 feet long, and you attach it to your

alternator's back end, which has a bar-metal spring tensioner. The

wrench bends back this tensioner spring, which allows you to remove

the old belt, and put in the new belt.
