get underneath or above either way you can get to it. It is right in front of the engine where your sepentine belt is. You belt goes around all your pulleys and the tensioner/pulley. You can use a 3/8" ratchet to stick in there and pull down on it, that is how your belt comes off. You can also adjust it's tension if you need to with a socket. I would youtube it if you need. It is pretty easy to deal with.

**STOP** PRIOR TO REMOVING THE BELT TAKE NOTE OF THE BELT ROUTING, CHECK FOR A DIAGRAM ON THE RADIATOR SHROUD Now to replace the belt, rotate the automatic belt tensioner counterclockwise to release belt tension. remove the belt from the auxiliary components and slowly release the tensioner. Route the new belt over the various pulleys, **see note above**, then rotate the tensioner and set the belt in the grooves. be sure the belt is seated in the grooves on all pulleys, then release slowly.

The Chevrolet S10 doesn't have a timing belt.

The water pump would be a standard rotation. The serpentine belt moves clockwise on the model truck which would make it standard not reverse. With a serpentine belt system like the one in the 2000 S10 4.3, any pulley that is grooved turns clockwise. Any pulley that is smooth turns counterclockwise. The water pump pulley on that S10 is smooth and turns CCW.

First get the right tool, I had a long flat bar that had an assortment of sockets to fit the spring loaded Idler. Locate the diagram of the belt path on the hood or cowling, your going to need it! Disconnect negative battery cable for safety. You might need to remove the fan shroud or other items to get clear access. Use the tool to rotate the idler and release belt tension and remove belt from one pulley carefully keeping you fingers clear of being pinched. Install new belt following path show on diagram, rotate idler and loop belt over last pulley and release. If the belt is too short or too long, recheck the path, it's real easy to go round the wrong way and end up way off, belts are usually correct and length problems are operator error. Replace any other parts removed, connect battery and inspect belt is running smoothly.

I just changed the one on my 1992 s10, its a serpentene belt which is one belt for everything. you need a rachet and a pipe or something to go over the handle of the rachet to give you more leverage. the rachet will go on the bottom of the idler pulley in the front. Just make sure you know the routing of the belt before taking off the old belt, usually a belt diagram is near the hood latch on a sticker. You should be able to put the rachet on with the pipe over it and push toward the passenger side and the belt should come right off, and just reverse to put the new belt on.

Accessory drive belt and or belt tensioner.

take your belt off look on right hand side of motor if looking at motor should be close to bottom of motor 3 or 4 bolts will hv to take pulley

Get a ratchet with a 3/8" drive. You may need a short piece of pipe for leverage. You could use a 1/2" drive (bigger wrench) with a reducer on it. Or even a breaker bar with a reducer on it, as long as it is 3/8" at the end. Crawl under the truck. On the lower passenger side you will see the belt tensioner pulley. In the arm, between the pulley and its pivot, you will see a 3/8" square hole. Put the wrench in it. With the wrench set correctly, lift the tensioner and slip the belt off of a pulley.
