Then loosen the bolt in the center of the idler pulley with the AC belt on it. Above this pulley is a bolt that you loosen to relieve the tension. Remove the tension and the ac belt will come off the pulleys. Simply pull the belt around the fan blade and reverse to reinstall and set tension an belts and that's it.... Chuck

Just slightly different than on lesser cars: Saabs have two alternator belts that run in parallel. This belt pair also drives the water pump, so they wanted to be sure you wouldn't get stranded. But it's pretty easy: your alternator runs on an adjustment track. Loosen both bolts and pivot the alternator so you can get the belts off. Look how they're routed before you remove them. If you have AC the belt for that is blocking in your alternator belts, so loosen the compressor and take it off. Then put the new belts you bought in place, tension the alternator (I stick a broomstick between the alternator and engine, and pry the belts tight), tighten both bolts, tension the AC compressor and tighten it, and you're done.
