Yes the previous solution is most likely, check your water pump this is what supplies the drive to the viscous fan, check there is no movement in the pump by moving it side to side, if it rubbing against the belt it should be quite obvious that the bearing in pump has collapsed and will require pump replacement.

I have a 2002 Ford Escort i replaced the alternator fine, then had to replace the serpentine belt yesterday i got the new belt and took the old one off. When i put the new belt on it started up fine no...


No the belt should should not rub on anything. Go to a ford dealership and ask the parts counter guy for a diagram of the belt routing they should print you off a copy no problem. all the ones i go to are happy to assist

The serpentine belt is falling off durning wet weather


Hi Brenda !
I am sorry to hear about your problem with your 99 voyagers serpentine belt falling off in wet weather !
I am suggesting that the harmonic ballancer is at fault.
The harmonic ballancer is the pully that is on the engines output shaft on the front of the engine (the transmission is on the back side of the engine).
I am assuming that the rubber bushing that holds the outer ring with the serpentine belt pully on it has detatched and is causing a misallignment of the pully to the belt , causing the belt to glide off.
I am unsure how this relates to wet weather though...

Inspect the pully by turning the vehicle OFF and looking in the wheel well behind the tire. There is a plastic shield there to keep the water durring wet weather from spraying on the belt and accesories... look and see if the plastic has been damaged (possibly a round 'rub thru' where the harmonic ballancer pully rubbed it ?).

The main pully (i think its the crankshaft one) doesnt lign up with all the other ones therfore the belt broke! anything is helpfull


wow, if the main crankshaft pulley is off, that's pretty hard to do.

but, I'll take your word for it.

I think that it's more likely that the accessories attached to the engine are not aligned to the crankshaft pulley.

Look for problems with the serpentine tensioner pulley, if you have the serpentine belt.

Look for stuck pulleys as well, that can make a belt break as the crankshaft forces the belt to try to turn the stuck pulley.

Good luck on this repair.

Serpentine belt slips off idler pulley


The A/C pully is supposed to spin freely until the AC is activated to run.. The cranshaft pully does not. Replace the tensioner pully. The belt has to fit in between the grooves on the pullys.

Serpentine belt


The pulley's aren't supposed to spin freely with the belt on. The belt connects all the pully's to the crankshaft, which does not spin freely because it is attached to the pistons inside the engine. To turn the pulleys, you have to turn the crankshaft, which in turn moves the pistons inside the engine up and down.

Serpentine belt came off need to know how it goes back on


this is hard to exsplain without showing you a photo ,but i will try. first get the belt around the engine crankshaft which is the pully closest to the bottom and center of the engine. when standing in front of engine start to lead the belt to the right and connect to power steering pump then up to generator, next thare is going to be a smooth pully not groved like the others to the left,put the smooth side of the belt on bottom of this pully and continue left to the ac/compressor go around ac/compressor andstraight down to the belt tensioner , and then right over to the water pump which has a smooth pully not grooved. remember the smooth pullys will always carry the smooth side of the belt and the grooved pullys the grooved side of belt. the belt tensioner will half to be released by a serpantine belt tensioner tool sold at your local auto parts store. these instructions is for 3.8 liter engine, if you have a 4.6 liter engine it will be different, so repost stating that you have a 4.6 if this dont help
