Between the power steering pump and the water pump. The only one of two pulleys that is smooth versus grooved.

On my 97 Cavalier I can use a 15mm box end wrench on the spring tension idler pulley. The idler pulley is in the middle of all the pulleys on the belt. It is right under the engine mount and above the crankshaft pulley. It is difficult to get to, but I can put the wrench on the bolt in the center of the pulley and apply clockwise force (looking at the engine from the passenger side fender) to rotate the idler down. This will loosen the belt. You will need to do the same to re-install the belt. Be careful, the pulley will try to spring up when you remove the belt. Make sure you memorize or draw the belt path before you remove it. If you forget, Advance Auto Parts can print a diagram. It was the same for our 2004 Cavalier. I took the right wheel off and lining behind it.... much much easier! (pulley and belt right there)

you should be able to put a socket wrench in the front of the idler pulley. Push away from the tension of the belt, then remove the belt. MAKE SURE you remember how the belt came off. Loosen the bolts on the pulley, then remove. Install new pulley, then put the belt back on.

Yes, a 1997 Chevy Cavalier does have a distributor cap. The distributor does not have points and a condenser. This part is one electronic unit.

Your power steering units pulley has worn or broken bearings. This can harm your vehicle, suggest you have it replaced.

The A/C compressor is located on the bottom of passenger side of the engine. It is the unit between the crankshaft pulley and the idler pulley. It is driven by the serpentine accessory belt.

Next to the oil filter, bolted to the block.
