You really need to hit the local parts store and get a diagram. It is fairly simple if you have a serpentine belt.
Providing your cavalier has a 2.2l, this is what your looking at.
i like an axhaust diagram for a 1999 chevy venture
IT IS ON THE FAN SHROUD> If it isn't there draw one before you take the belt off. If the belt is off, go to a used car lot and find a like car and draw a schematic.
You can see the serpentine belt diagram from the 2000 Ford Focus online at places like Focus Fanatics. You can also find this diagram at Go Parts.
Serpentine belts labels are being remove from cars and trucks by quick oil change company's. Like Jiffy lube
I need diagram of the fan belt for a 1997 jeep wrangler sport

I know that on my neighbor's '98 Malibu, there is a diagram under the hood, right next to the serpentine belt assembly. On my '97, it looks like there was one, but it must have come off. With so many Malibus on the road, just ask someone if they will pop their hood for you.
It look like any other cambelt
There should be a routing diagram under the hood of the car or in your owners manual, to get the belt off you need to pull or push the belt tensioner with a wrench or a rachet to take the tension off the belt so it will come off and once off the new belt installs like the diagram shows and once in place you release the belt tensioner against the belt to tighten it up.
Go to a Pep-Boys, Auto Zone......places like that.....they can run you off a copy of the belt....
