Question about 1999 Mercury Sable
My 1999 mercuy sable a/c compressor and serpentine belt changed by a local autoshop but now the engine maintenance required light came on.What will be the next step
It means that the computer has detected a fault. You have a couple of options. You can buy an inexpensive code reader for about $50 and pull the codes yourself. You can call your local parts store to see if they can do this for you. You can bring your vehicle to a local shop and have them run a diagnosis. There is usually a charge for this. Let me know what codes you have and I'll be happy to help you further.

there should be a diagram of the belt under the hood : ibelieve it is on top of the radiator fan cover.
A merc dealer should be able to give you a print out. Or maybe an auto parts store.

There are also two serpentine belt types for the 2002 sable. The S and U type engine. Take the old belt with you the the parts store. As for the diagram, I googled it under images and about a dozen correct ones came up. Remember the 2002 sable is the same as the 2002 Tarus.

Loosen the bolt on the alternator until it slips freeing the belts tension, from there slip it off all the pulley's and put the new one on the same way. you may need a crow bar or something similar to apply force to the alternator to get the belt tight again while tightening the bolt you loosened earlier to loosen the belt. Make sure that every bolt or nut that you loosened is tight again. If your an average male; apply near all your strength onto the alternator to tighten the belt, just not all of it or you will over tighten it. If your a female: take your anger out on it, you won't break it, and if you do, i wouldn't want to get into a fight with you. BFD8B15.gif
