My serpentine belt recently came off and i just went and bought a new one but im not sure on the pattern. Does anybody have a diagram by chance? And is it the same patter as the Aura? I found the diagram for that vehicle. Please help. I would very much appreciate the help. Thank you have a good day

I think this is what ours looks like:

Yours could be different (e.g. if you don't have AC, etc.).

To replace the accessory belt, we did not need to remove the motor mount. But I think we removed the airbox to access the tensioner with a (low profile) wrench. It's a 10 minute job to replace at home. Be careful of fingers and hands!

Broken accessory belts are rare on the Astra so you might want to determine if it was just high mileage original belt or some problem with an accessory component/pulley. Did the AC work, was the battery charging, were there any noises from under the hood?

While the belt is off, check all the pullies are round, properly aligned, undamaged, etc. I suppose all the pullies should spin by hand freely and quietly (except the crank which won't move).
