I need to replace the alternator in my 1994 GMC Jimmy S15.
How do I loosen the serpentine belt?
Thanks,

Remove the fan shroud, put a socket on the bolt head on the tensioner pulley, pull toward the passenger side with either a breaker bar or a ratchet, breaker bar is preferred. Make sure you diagram the belt routing, or have a good memory, or that the sticker on the rad. support is intact. Disconnect the battery, and the alt. is 2 mounting bolts, a nut holding the charge wire and one other connector away from being free from the truck. Took me about 30-45 mins. to do the job on my 94...
