serpentine change

Bought a new serpentine belt for my 98 olds regency only to find that the job is much more difficult than my 1988. Looks like GM stuck a motor mount in the middle.

Any help on procedure to remove obstacle would be appreciated.

Thanks Tim

You need to semi remove the upper motor mpunt so you can get the belt on.You will need to jack engine up a little.(thanks GM)

Thanks for your reply Michael

Does the mount come apart or should I remove it from the motor or frame?

Thanks again, Tim

If it's like the one I ran into on a Pontiac, if you look closely, it may be spacer type mount. Check for a bolt in the wheel well area. Remove the bolt and tap the spacer out. Reverse after you have replaced the belt.

Thanks for the info, this turned into a bigger job than anticipated considering my limited knowledge and equipment. In the past, all I needed was a socket and a long breaker bar.

Not sure if moter mount will come apart but will give it a try next week.
Thanks again, Tim
