Download ’03 Buick Park Avenue Ultra Drive Belt Servce Manual – Drive Belt Replacement Removal Procedure – The supercharged 3800 engine uses two drive belts. The outer belt drives the supercharger. The inner belt drives the generator, power steering pump, coolant pump and air conditioning compressor. All driven accessories are rigidly mounted to the engine. Drive belt tension is maintained by the spring loaded belt tensioners. Each belt has its own tensioner.
