It's the round wheel that looks like it's not driving any accessory. use a 3/8 inch socket pry bar to relieve the tension so you can get the belt off..... make sure you know how to get the belt back on properly

Need to know how to take the tension off alternator belt to change alternator


There is normally a spring loaded tension pulley that you can release tension on by using a ratchet or breaker bar placed in the square hole on the arm holding the pulley.

2006 ford tauras i replaced batterie,alternator,and belt i have a noise coming for the bottom pulley while i spray wd40 around the bottom pulley only the noise stops what makes this pulley go out and how...


First, if you have sprayed WD-40 on your belt, your belt has been wrecked and needs to be replaced again. WD-40 will only soak into the belt and CAUSE it to slip and make noise.

Then you need to check the alignment of all the belt pullies. The tensioner pullies on many Fords can wear and sit a little out of alignment and cause the belt to rub sideways against the other pullies. Replacing the belt tensioner usually fixes it.

FOLLOW THE BELT, IT WILL GO AROUND SEVERAL PUMP PULLIES ANS SOMEWHERE ALONG THE PATH YOULL COME ACROSS A "BELT TENSIONOR" IT'S A SMALL WHEEL ABOUT 1.5 T0 2.5 INCHES ACROSS. FEEL FOR A BOLT HEAD IN THE CENTER OF THE WHEEL. FIND A SOCKET THAT FITE AND WITH A STRAIGHT BAR OR RATCHETT ATTACHED TURN THE BOLT IN THE DIRECTION THAT WILL LOOSEN THE TENSION OFF OF THE BELT THE TENSIONOR IS A SPRING LOADED DIVICE THAT AKES UP SLACK IN THE BELT AND KEEPS IT TIGHT.

Replace a serpentine belt on a 97 ford taurus


use a 15mm box wrench on the nut retaining the tensioner pulley to pry the tensioner 'arm' against the spring to release belt. note belt routing on decal under hood,or make a sketch,to aid in replacement.
on OHV engine rotate clockwise
on OHC rotate counter clockwise
be sure belt is completely seated on pulleys

Belt inst


For the 3.0L Vulcan, you have a tensioner that is located just below the power steering pully. Use a 15mm wrench or the 15mm shallow well socket that comes in a Serpentine Belt tool to push the tensioner toward the rear of the engine compartment. Take the old belt off and route the new belt. The belt begins at the crankshaft pully, goes under and around the a/c compressor, up around the power steering pump, around (with the flat edge) the idler pully, around the alternator, the flat edge then sits against the tensioner and back around to the water pump pully. You should have a belt routing diagram on the underside of the hood just above the serpentine pully assembly.

REPLACING BELT ON MY 2000 TAURUS.HAVE BELT OVER ALL PULLYS,BUT LAST ONE ,DON'T KNOW HOW TO PULL BACK PULLY AND GET BELT ON AT THE SAME TIME.


locate the tensioner... you need a "breaker" bar with a 3/8 inch socket head... a rachet would do with a long enough handle. there is a square hole in the tensioner... you need to release pressure on the tensioner long enough to get the belt on.

Use a ratchet to untension the tensioner pulley. I believe its the one between the alternator and power steering pump. Its the smaller pulley! Give it a try!2ad0829.jpg
