I do not have a owner manual, and the diagram of proper installment of the serpintine belt is not on my cadi anywhere. How do I install my new belt?
where can I find a diagram that shows me the proper way?

I have yet to figure a way to transfer illustrations. I will try to verbally describe it for you. From the crankshaft pulley, forward to the a/c, up and around the idler, and back to the alternator. From there it makes a long span up to the p.S, turns and goes down to the tensioner. The belt has to be rotated 90, and brought between the tensioner and timing cover, and then to the crankshaft. Where we started. It may make it easier to start with the tensioner, it would have been a bit more confusing if I had started there. Hope this helps. If you take and make a drawing as I described, it may aid.
