Question about 1998 Ford Escort
I need path of serpentine belt
SOURCE: 2003 VW Jetta Serpentine Belt
is it a squeal noise or what? explain more in detail. and yes the belt is directional in that it's path is designed to run in one direction only, no matter which side you put on the belt itself, the belt can be installed in one way or flip it over to the opposite side...doesn't matter, only matters if you installed it correctly on the routing of the belt. And the grooved edge is to be facing down inside the main pulley's that have grooves. If you have the smooth side down into the pulley grooves, remove teh belt and turn it inside out so that the smooth side does not ride inside the grooves of the pulleys.Sometimes, the tensioner pulley will squeal or the idler pulley will squeal when they are going out. If you are actually hearing the fan come on and off, that's normal, the fan is set up to turn on and off according to engine temperature and some cars they continue to run for a bit after ignition is turned off as well to cool the engine down. check to see if the belt is set all the way on all the pulley's it rides on and not partly off on the edge, realign as needed.

The diagram should be located under the hood close to the radiator. It should be a black sticker with the diagram in white lettering. Look towards the passenger side near the front of the motor.
I will look at my manual for my 2000 Voyager. They should be close to the same. If you do not find the diagram under the hood comment back and I will get you a photo of the belt drive out of the manual for engine you have. If I can!! What engine do you have??
