= How do you replace the serpentine belt on a 2002 ZX2 = Start by making a diagram of the belt route. Have the new belt handy. Raise the car on jack stands or ramps. Locate the tensioner pulley and release the belt tension from beneath the car on the front of the engine. (Bolt head is 14 mm) It will take some work but get the old belt off the car. (Good time to inspect water pump, hoses etc.) Refer to the diagram, route the new belt around pulleys. Leave the belt off the tensioner pulley, and the pulley immediately above it. Push the tensioner pulley back (to release position) and with the aide of an assistant, position the belt on the remainder of the pulleys. Release the tensioner pulley only after everybody is out of the way.
