how do i route a serpetine belt on a 2007 pontiac grand prix base while skipping power steering?

Asked by Nov 03, 2015 at 03:06 PM about the 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need to know how to route my serpentine belt on my 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix (base model), but I need to skip the power steering pulley (pump went out and cant change it at this time.)

How long of a belt would I need, and how do I route it?

I rather doubt that is possible. At the minimum you would need a shorter belt and there is a safety issue as your steering ability will be seriously compromised. It is better to do it right!

You can't. Having power steering can be vital to the safe operation of your car. In certain situations fast steering response is critical for accident avoidance. Without power assist this may not be possible in certain situations. My advice is park the car until you can get a power steering pump. Don't want you hurting yourself or others! Be safe! HTH. -Jim


They should have a diagram showing how to under the hood. I don't think you will be able to skip the power steering pump pulley though.


Can't be done.
