Hey Shelly==Pull up on the belt and you will see that there is a tensioner pulley that is spring loaded and holds tension on the belt. Pry the tensioner to release the tension on the belt then remove the belt and instll the new one. There should be a schematic for the routing for the belt on the fan shroud. If it isn't there draw a schmatic before you remove the belt. Don't rely on memory. This is not as easy as it sounds but not real difficult. GoodluckJoe

Depends on how you ran the belt. On a V belt, looking at the front of the motor, the water pump would be turning clockwise. If on the serpentine you ran under the water pumppully and are running on the back side of the belt as some do, then the pump would be turning counter clockwise and yes, running backwards.
