Serpentine belt in a 1995 Mercury sable

My mechanic has installed 2 serpentine belts. The first belt he had to replace as he states that the pulley on the water pump was broken and cut the belt. I now have a new alternator and a new water pump and a brand new 1 year warranty serpentine belt. Last night after test driving the car for 2 hours I went to pick my son up from work and the brand new serpentine belt fell off for the second night in a row... Are their any diagrams that he can look at as he is obviously not installing the belt correctly if it keeps falling off.

I have the same car and last night my belt slipped off. The top small pulley backed it's self out. The problem is in most cars the pulleys are reverse threaded so this wont happen, in ours not so much. The pully spins loose with the turn of the belt so it has to be tightened way down. IT's a pain. Here is a diagram I found and You need a 15mm wrench, which doesn't just come in most sets. Good Luck

The book says "Using a 15 mm socket or wrench on bolt attaching drive belt tensioner pulley, rotate drive belt tensioner clockwise. Make sure spring keeper engages into slot." I would put a socket on the 15 mm pulley bolt and a long handle for leverage. Thats one tight spring.

I think you have the same problem I had, but my car was a Honda. Remove the large nut that keeps the harmonic balancer pulley on and i bet you will see that the bolt behind it is semi worn off due to wear and tear. It may appear to be fine but look closely. If it is worn the pulley will loosen up eventually and then your belt will keep coming off. Replace the bolt and you'll be fine, but you may have a problem getting it out, if so you may want a mechanic to do this, i didn't want to tackle that project so i let someone else do it, but i did manage to get the large nut off myself that holds the pulley in place. i replaced the pulley knowing that the bolt was worn down and sure enough the belt came off again after driving a liitle while. I checked the pully again and it was loose.

(Tip)-I had to remove plastic engine coverings under the car and turn the front wheels in order to get the pulley off.

How to replace a serpentine belt tensioner on a 1995 mercury sable 3.8


Hello. Using a 15 mm socket or wrench on bolt attaching drive belt tensioner pulley, rotate drive belt tensioner clockwise. Make sure spring keeper engages into slot. I would put a socket on the 15 mm pulley bolt and a long handle for leverage. Here is the link to the diagram you need:

Step by step on how to replace the alternator on a mercury sable 3.0L?


Hi:
The simple version is this:

Disconnect the negative battery terminal
Make a diagram of the routing of your serpentine belt if there isn't a picture under the hood.
Locate the spring loaded tensioner pulley , and using a breaker bar or large ratchet, rotate it to take the tension off of the serpentine belt, then slip the belt loose off of the tensioner. disconnect the electrical connectors off of the alternator. Unbolt the alternator in two places.
To install, reverse the process

Make sure your battery is fully charged before starting the car.

If you need better instructions, a one year subscription to www.alldatadiy.com is a good choice, for about $20 you can acess everything about your car!

I have a 1999 Mercury Sable. The only problem I have had with the car is the serpentine belt. It started 3 months ago . . . the engine was overheating and the belt was shredding. I bought a belt tensioner...


take the belt off and carefully check to see if any of the pulleys are out of line and check to make sure they spin smooth and true check for bearing wear and noise in any of the pulleys cause it sounds like simply there is a pulley out of line

is the a/c working ok??? shredding the belt may be cause by the a/c compressor problems. the "chunk" maybe not, but shredding tells me something does not spin when it should. I dont know why the mehanic put a new pump on that had a problem with the pulley, it should be smooth. anyhting that the belt runs should be smooth and east to turn, make sure that all of the grooves are clean, no remnants of the old belt.

Serpentine belt


The 3.0 engine is equipped with an auto tensioner (spring loaded).
If your experiencing a noise concern it could be the belt needs replacement or a pulley could be mis-aligned.

'93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC


You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.

Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.

Serpentine belt


I haven't looked at my wife's sable, but it should probably have a nut on the pulley (tensioner) that you could turn left or right and get your belt back on.
