There isn't a fan belt on them.

Another Perspective:While the above is absolutely true, Saturn's DO have a serpentine belt which powers several devices and some people refer to that as a "fan belt".

The radiator fan on a Saturn is electric, as a result it does not technically have a "fan belt".


The alternator, AC compressor, Power Steering pump, and coolant pump all operate on the serpentine belt.

To replace the serpentine belt:

  1. Set the parking brake and block the rear wheels of the vehicle.
  2. Jack up the front of the vehicle and support it on jack stands.
  3. Remove the passenger side wheel/tire assembly, then remove the inner mud shield to expose the pulley end of the engine.
  4. Note the routing of the serpentine belt, and even photograph it if you think there may be a possibility that you could forget.
  5. Take tension off the serpentine belt by turning the tensioner arm.
  6. While Tension is off, slide the serpentine belt off several of the pulley's.
  7. Remove the old serpentine belt and route the new belt according to the diagram or photo that you made above.
  8. Release the tensioner again, allowing you to put the new belt back in place on the remainder of the pulleys.
  9. Replace the mud shield.
  10. Replace the tire/wheel.
  11. Put the car back on the ground.


Often a belt wears prematurely because it has become oil soaked or because the tensioner spring became weak.

Also, bearings wear and become loose and/or noisy.

While the belt is off:

  • Examine the idler pulley bearings for noise or wear.
  • Examine the power steering pump for oil leaks.
  • Examine the alternator for noisy or worn bearings.
  • Examine the water pump for leaks, since a leaky water pump can cause your belt to fail, AND is an indicator that it's about to fail completely.

Doing such work yourself allows you to perform routine preventative maintenance so that you won't have something catastrophic occur, leaving you stranded somewhere.
