SERPENTINE BELT REPLACEMENT

2001 Saturn SC2

Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Saturn SC2 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

Hi, I have to replace the serpentine belt due to cracks and wear and have heard that it is a nightmare to change because of the limited space. Do you know of any tricks to make this job easier and quicker?
Thanks in advance,
Chris

You can change it without removing the upper motor mount but it is a lot more challenging I support the engine with a floor jack remove the upper mount and jack the engine up and that will give you plenty of room to change it. Make sure you use a piece of wood between the jack and mount.
