PUTING ON THE DRIVE BELT

1996 Holden Commodore

Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Holden Commodore 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 540200 miles

Could you please tell me or send me a picture of the belt configuration. The car is a 1996 Holden Acclaim VS V6. The belt came off due to a pull on the water pump coming apart. I seem to get it on ok, but it doesn't tension.

Thankyou if you can help me out.

I don't have any info for non-US models. But after some research, I understand that Holden is a subsidiary to General Motors, and Commodore uses the same engine and Buick, Oldsmobile and Chevrolet 3.8L Ecotec V6. This is the serpentine belt diagram for a Buick with 3.8L V6.
