    How do you replace the belt for the A/C compressor on 2002 Escalade 6.0?

    It looks like you have to remove the serpentine belt to get the A/C belt behind it - looks like no big deal.
    But how do you get the belt onto the compressor pulley. It looks like you cannot even get to that side. Please help. I do not want to pay $165 to a local shop for a $30 part.

    Thanks, I see it now. The diagram for the A/C belt on the fan shroud is wrong. All the documentation I found online is wrong too. It does not show the tensioner pulley. However, the diagram for the sepentine is dead on. You have to take off the serpentine first. Then swap the A/C belt (# 378K4). 5 minute job. Very easy.
