Hey there, To replace the serpentine belt on a 1999 cavalier, is a fairly simple operation provided you have the right tools. You will need a *OEM* brand serpentine belt kit, if you dont want to buy it($33 beans), you can rent one from your local auto-zone or advance auto parts store. About half way down the passenger side of the engine, there is a belt tensioner. This is spring loaded and holds the belt tight against the pulleys during normal operation. you take the long red handled lever in the serpentine kit and put its 3/8 square socket head into the 3/8 square hole in the belt tensioner. You then simply push the lever CLOCKWISE until you have released enough tension on the belt to slide it off of the pulleys. It then can be removed completely and a replacement put on. To replace the belt simply reverse the procedure. There is a serpentine belt diagram on the underhood of most GM vehicles. !!!Caution!!! On My 2001 Cavalier with factory ac, I had to work around the ac lines, place a bottle jack under the engine(not on the oil pan) and wind up unbolting the passenger side motor mount, and the radiator overflow tank in order to gain enough access to service the very tight area around the pulleys. This may be different for you TK out!!!!
