How do you loosen the belt to replace the alternator on a 1999 Ford van?

The idler pulley is on a spring loaded arm. To release the tension, use a long breaker bar, or a long pipe on a box wrench. Use the proper size wrench or socket, and put it on the idler pulley bolt head. Rotate the idler arm assembly in a counter clock-wise direction and the tension will be released. Then you can remove the belt. Hint use rubber bands to keep the belt on the other pulleys while replacing the alternator. Joedi

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

Best to get a shop manual for this operation, if you have not replaced it before. Usually there is an "Idler Pulley" on many late model cars that is "spring loaded". You "Bias" this pulley using the big nut in the middle of the pulley (usually with a socket wrench) so that the serpentine belt has enough slack in it so you can remove it. Install new belt by reverse procedure. TommyTrouble
