2009 AURA XR
Default Re: Changing the serpentine belt on the Ecotec

2009 Saturn Aura XR, Ecotec 2.4 engine
Grind inch bolt ( inch overall length) into 3/8 square to fit into 3/8 hole in tensioner. Use open end inch wrench on Head of bolt. Raise tensioner with wrench and use wire to attach box end of wrench to engine lift hook. Remove and install new belt. I used duct tape on wrench and head of bolt to keep it all together and make it easier to maneuver into tensioner.
No need to remove engine mount, raise vehicle etc., Most time consuming job was grinding the bolt! Changing belt took a few minutes.
