Default Chaning the belt on a 95 Bonni?

OK so i try and change the belt on the car and it has a motor mount right in between sop my guess is that it has to be removed in order to change the belt?
Can anybody shine some light on my please.

Which belt on which engine?
A Series I NA 3800 serp belt is changed w/o the removal of the engine mount. I'm not sure about the SC Series I & II'* though.

I have the book for both. I can give you the step-by-step instructions but I need to know what car you are dealing with.

i dunno about you but with mine i just got a breaker bar and applied counterclockwise pressure on the tensioner to loosen the belt. replace, follow the belt routing diagram on the radiator.

can be done under one minute.

I haven't ever changed mine, but I can see where Caedo is coming from. On my Series II engine, it appears that the belt encircles one of the mounts. I don't see any obvious way of changing the belt without removing that mount. Is there a way?

Ok the lower bar that attaches to the block from the motor mount can be disconnected this bar is the one I used. Takes a bit of work and make sure you take off the pressure on the mount so its easy. Use a jack or a bar properly positioned across the engine bay to take the engine weight.

TY

This can be quite a task though, I just gave up and took my 99 in to Goodyear and had them do it for me, They have the right tools for hte job, and it only took them a half hour, compared to me trying to do it by myself for over 4 hours. Oh well you live and learn

Confusion? I have a 95 se (Wish I had a supercharger) And the belt removal is easy. I just loosened (acturlaly took off) the belt tensioner and did what I neededs to do. Really only like a 10 minute job. I needed it to replace the alternator. Damn whine. lol.
