Find the belt tensioner; it is near the top of belt with a pulley attched to it.The tensioner is spring loaded so you will need a wrench or breaker bar to pry on it. It will have a square hole (breaker bar) or a hex fitting ( wrench) to allow you to move it. Before you do ,pay attention to how the belt runs. Simply put tension against it and the belt will slip off.

How do you install a serpentine belt on a Buick Skylark?

You will have to loosen tentioner to get belt off of all pulleys. Then you need to jack up engine or pick up engine with a lift of some kind, just enough to hold engine in place while you remove upper engine mount, this has to be done so as to slip belt past mount and off engine. Then put new belt in position and bolt mount back in place. Release jack or lift. I usually put belt back on everything but alternator, pull on tensioner and roll back over alternator. This is on a 3100 engine, or 3.1 liter. Hope this helps
