See "Related Questions" below for much more about dealing with Taurus - Sable serpentine belts & tensioners

BEST advise! Go to your nearest AutoZone Store and ask for a Serpentine Belt Tool: OEM27115.

You may borrow the tool for free, just leave a $25.00 deposit which is returned to you when you bring it back to them. With this tool the job is child's play.

Put the 15mm socket on the tension pulley bolt and pull the tool in a clockwise direction to releive the tension on the belt. Two people(4 hands) will make the job much easier.

Look on the bottom side of the hood of your car for the diagram showing the routing of the belt. You should have the new belt on in less than a half hour.

You can even do it in their parking lot. No other tools are necessary.

A 15mm Crescent Wrench (THE ROUND END) will fit into the VERY NARROW AREA. The reservoir should be moved to give more space...Leave the Large

Hose attached (if possible)...Make the LOOP over the ALTERNATOR your last

obstacle... While pulling forward on the Tension - Loop the Alternator and

you're DONE.. Del

How do you replace the serpentine belt on a 1999 Buick LeSabre?

There is a spring-loaded tensioner pulley that keeps tension on the belt. The tensioner should have a place to fit a ratchet wrench or breaker bar (may or may not need a socket). The tensioner bar rotates clockwise or counterclockwise to release the tension on the belt. Be sure and note how the belt is routed so you will install the new belt in the same pattern. The tensioner is self-adjusting.
