Loosen the tensioner pulley on your Monte Carlo 3.1 liter engine. Slide the tensioner pulley to the right. The serpentine belt can be removed. Put the new serpentine belt on and slide the tensioner pulley to the left.
on the front of the engine and it is run by the serpentine belt.
Near the top of the serpentine belt path is a belt tensioner; it is spring loaded and has a shinney pulley on it. Insert a wrench into this tensioner and pull against it and the tension will be released so you can replace your belt. I am assuming your question is about the serpentine belt.
You can change an idler pulley on a 2001 Monte Carlo by first, removing the negative cable from the battery. Using a socket wrench, loosen the tension adjustment bolt. Slide the serpentine belt away from the pulley. Remove?æthe center bolt, and remove the pulley from the engine. Replace the pulley,?æreturn and tighten the bolts, and replace the serpentine belt.
The belt itself costs around $20 so if you do it yourself there you go... idk how much a garage would charge
on the passenger side of the car and it's driven by the serpentine belt.
Look under the hood of the car for the diagram or in your owners manual if you have it.
Look on your timing chain cover there should be a diagram attached.

If you mean the serpentine belt that runs the pulleys on the front of the car, there is a tensioner pulley that you can turn with a wrench to release the tension. Make sure you remember the routing of the belt so you can put the new belt on the same way.
there is no way to tighten your belt it has an automatic belt tensioner if it is making noise it may be the tensioner or the belt also check to see if it routed correctly
