do i have to take off the motor mount to put belt on
Yes and you put a jack underneath the motor to hold it up
thanks so much for your help
Serpentine belts don't take very long to put on once you figure out the routing. There is usually a diagram of the routing path some where under the hood. You don't have to take off anything, however you may need a special wrench or 1/2" drive ratchet to push the tensioner out of the way while you slip it over the last pulley.
