Be careful about the "how to fix" on you tube. Not always right.
Looked up how to replace the serpentine belt on a 2013 chevy cruze. They said you have to jack up the motor and take the three bolts out on the motor mount to get the belt off. Not so! They also said to do this work from the top. Wrong also!
After placing it on ramps, I took the plastic cover off from underneath. Then took a 3/8 ratchet with 13mm socket, turned the idler pulley, and the belt came right off. The belt I ordered from Amazon was the wrong belt too, so I had to go to town and buy the right one. :bash:

Thank you mgwin. The very reason I do not use you tube. Not even decent entertainment.
