Get  the radiator and power steering reservoir out of the way

First you need to get the radiator and power steering reservoir out of the way. To do this you only need to slide the line going from the power steering pump out of it’s restraint on the top of the pump. Then remove the line on the radiator reservoir that is closest to the fender. Be sure to plug this line once remove to reduce the amount of coolant lost. You can now simple lift the radiator and power steering reservoir out and lay them on top of the engine. See picture and video for further details.

How Does The Volvo Belt Go On

Now we have to get the belt on, and if the belt is gone, use the diagram below. When I installed the belt it was easiest to start at the crank pully. I thin looped the belt over the alternator. Once here it was a little challenging to get the belt looped under the AC pully, but once done you are on the home stretch. Lastly I simply looped the belt over the power steering pump and it was ready to be tensioned.

Tighten The Serpentine Belt

Now the tensioner can be a little bit of a pain. You have to make sure the the belt is between the 14 mm wrench and the tensioner or it will never go on. Then with the wrench you want to turn clockwise to loosen the tensioner and allowing the belt to slide on. Once on it is just working in reverse to get everything installed back in place.

Remember, Plastic Covers

And one note when installing everything back in place. That plastics cover has groves on the inside the must be lined up to get it back on.
