Take a large ratchet or breaker bar and insert it into the square hole on the spring loaded belt tensioner;(it has a free-wheeling pulley on it) place tension against it and you will be able to install the belt. I hope this helps you. Mark

Removing a serpentine belt from 1989 Buick century?

There is a spring loaded pulley called a tensioner that puts the correct tension on the belt. That needs to be retracted so the belt can be slipped off. I have found using a ratchet socket makes this easy to do. Otherwise you run out of travel room before relaxing it sufficiently. Make sure you know the proper routing of the belt before taking it off, otherwise you will have trouble putting the new one back on..
