Can you change it yourself?

Hi KYLE9901;

Welcome to the Bonneville Forum!

Please add your year and trim of your vehicle to your signature line. That way when you start asking questions in other areas of the forum, we all have a better idea on how to assist you. Click on "Quick Links" above, go down to "User Control Panel" and then click on "Edit your Signature" It'* pretty straight forward from there.

The serpentine belt is not that difficult to replace yourself, but if you need a mechanic to replace it, it shouldn't cost your more then 30 minutes of time if you already have the belt.

you'd be surprised how non-confusing cars can be. as for tools you can grab a good size set at you local auto parts, sears ect store use them once and they pay for them selves (what is mech labor now a days). Where are you from if you are in CT or NJ I wont mind helping you out. BE surprised the satisfaction on ecan get from work on his own car. Have fun with the new ride.

Hiya Newbie!

It'* pretty tough for us to tell you how much it'll cost at a mechanic'* shop. We don't know if you go to the guy that reads "Please screw me" on each person that walks through his door or the honest guy that'll charge you reasonably.

The job should take about 30min if they know what they are doing. You will probably get charged an hour.
