    '92 Deville Serpentine Belt

    I just finished installing a new Idler Pulley and bought a new Belt for my '92 Sedan Deville. Struggled for an hour and still couldnt get the new belt on. I followed the belt route diagram thats on the sticker. I get the belt around all the pulleys and when its time to pull back the belt tensioner I cant get the belt to go under the idler pulley. Maybe the belt is too small? Any help would be appreciated.

    Did you check to see if the belts are same size?
    Other thing I can think of I usually have belt on idlers/tensioner pulleys and find a diff pulley to slip on when pull it back. My PA would not go on over the idler but easily went over alt instead.

    I would suspect you got the wrong belt.

    Wrong size belt, routing belt wrong way, wrong pully size.

    Are you using 1/2 breaker bar to released tension on the pulley?

    Make sure it's the right belt. If is you probably missed the order of how it routes around the different pulleys and the way the pulleys are laid out on those engines you can be looking at the picture sideways and not know it until you're kicking yourself when the belt doesn't fit.
