There is a tension pulley located on the left side and down about half way down with a arm attached to it, you have to pull the tension arm up to release the belt. actually on the 96 model it not that simple just to change the serpentine belt you have to disconnect MOTOR MOUNT before you can remove belt i know that sound crazy but i have a 96 acheiva sc v6 that i change belt on not pretty!

is it hard to change the water pump on a 1992 Oldsmobile achieva. Yes, it is very hard to replace a water pump on an Achieva. When the pump died on my 1996 Achieva, the engine needed to be unbolted and removed to get to it. As I recall, it cost about $500. I have a 95 Olds Achieva 3.1 and the water pump was very easy to change. Mine is on the front passenger side of the engine. Very easy to get to, just be careful not to break any bolts off. lol
