To remove the serpentine belt use a 1/2" breaker bar to rotate the tensioner upward off the serpentine belt while removing the belt from the pulleys. When installing the new belt make sure the belt is aligned properly in the grooves of the accessory pulleys(or the costly new belt will be shredded when the engine starts).

When I had mines done they called it a serpentine belt and the installation was quick and minimal under $100.00 including labor and the belt.AnswerAll cars have drive belts. If, however the car only has one belt and it "snakes" up and over the pulleys it is termed a "serpentine" (snake) belt because of the way it is routed around the pulleys. Older cars have usually 2 or 3 belts that do not overlap or go over/under the pulleys. The belts simply go around the outside of the pulleys and are tensioned by a manual adjustment. Serpentine belts usually have an automatic/no-adjustable tensioner for the belt. Hope this helps!
