Where could you find an illustration on replacing serpentine belt on '97 Buick Park Avenue?
There should be an illustration in your ownners manual.Just had mine done.. mechanic had to remove psgr side motor mount to release belt. Not a fun job.trust me this ne job you want to pay someone to do, you need to lower the engine cradle to remover the PS motor mount,you could also visithttp://www.just .com/questions/5psw-replacing-serpentine-belt-1998it is the same for a 97. full illustrations and step by step directions.you will need an 18mm for the mounts and a 15 mm for the tensioner. it is an involved job but doable for the amateur. just make sure you have the engine supported and that the wood use is very important. -------------------------------------------------------------------This isn't a job if you aren't mechanically inclined. I didn't want to have to take the motor mount off, so I found an alternative solution, which involved me taking a reciprocating saw to the lower spacer on the motor mount so that I could slip the belt in underneath. I then used a thick washer to make the difference, and it'll allow me to easily change it in the future.You will need some specialized tools, mainly (if I remember correctly) a reverse torx bit (just like the impression left by a torx bit). The job took me two days because I was trying to figure things out. Like the OP said, not impossible, but if you aren't sure you can do the job then you will be asking for trouble.
