It's not actually a square hole, rather a square bolt head. I had this issue when a pulley fell of my sable a while ago. It's right in the middle of the tensioner. I ended up having to use a serpentine belt tool because I had maybe 2" of space between the wheel well and the actual bolt. Leverage is key

How do you replace a serpentine belt on a 1998 Pontiac transport?

If it is like my 97 transport, 6 cylinder, the way to change the belt is as follows: Locate the tension wheel near the center of the pulleys. Using a 3/8 inch rachet (without a socket), place the end into the square hole of the tension wheel. Using the rachet, push the wheel towards the firewall to loosen the tension on the belt. Remove the belt and release the tension. Follow the diagram to replace the belt reversing the process. Make sure the grooves in the wheels line up with the belt grooves.

How do you put the alternator back on a 91 Dodge Spirit that has a spring loaded tensioner?

Install everything back on the car except for the alternator belt. You are going to need a long socket bar and a 15 mm socket. A socket bar is basically a rachet without the rachet mechanism. It has the square end on it to go into the socket at a 90 degree angle. Set up the belt on all the pulleys except for the alternator. Put the socket and bar on the bolt that is holding the tensioner on and twist it like you were tightening it. This will move the tensioner and give you slack so you can put the belt onto the alternator pulley. Once it's on and aligned, slowly ease off the bar until the belt goes tight. Remove the socket and bar and you are done.

How do you put a serpentine belt on a 2000 Cadillac Escalade?

From a standard socket wrench, the square part that fits inside the socket also fits in the center of the idler pulley (rather than buying a special tool that does the same). Fit the socket wrench (without the socket) in the idler pulley and turn to move the idler pulley and loosen the belt. Remove he old belt. Move the idler pulley again and put the new belt on. The diagram for the belt is on a sticker under the hood on the body above the grille.
