There may be a diagram imprinted on fan shroud. There is a belt tensioner that tightens the belt. Also when installing belt be sure you have grooved part of belt riding on grooved pulleys. And flat side of belt riding on flat sided pulleys.

Howq do I remove serpentine belt on my 1999 buick La saber

Find the tensioner it will be a pulley that does nothing but put tension on the belt. There should be a square hole in it. that should fit a 3/8 inch drive socket wrench or breaker bar. Use that to remove the tension from the belt and remove - do the same to install new belt
