Question about Buick Cars & Trucks
The belt tensioner is making a noise i want to replace it can you send me pictures showing how to replace it?
You can probably changed it without pictures. You can take the serpentine belt off, and to do that you actually turn that tensioner that you want to replace, which releases the tension on the Belt. Once you have the belt off there is one bolt to take off the tensioner arm. It all comes off in one unit, and the new one will come already assembled, with a new bolt, ready to disc boat right in. There was a little pain that needs to line up to make sure you get it in the right position, other than that there's nothing to it.

You can try rotating the spark plug boot a little bit-not even a 1/4 turn-to break the seal between the plugand the boot. Then pull the boot wire off with a pliers on the metal boot shield. Once the boot has beet rotated on the plug, the shield helps to remove it.

disconnect battery first, unbolt alternator(3 bolts), cross bar bracket(2 nuts) unhook both heater hoses out of the connectors(each has a 7mm head bolt in them, then twist loose), remove belt, then there are 3 bolts holding it on the motor, has a plastic elbow to the intake and an o-ring seal male port that goes into the timing cover. gently pry back and forth to work it loose so not to break either the elbow or the port off. alot of times it seizes up in there. the elbow is a hat trick to get in and out also, just be patient and take your time
