Question about 1998 Ford Contour
What do I need to do to replace my Serp. belt, mine came off in a thousand pcs. Thanks Red
Simple, look into the belt tension pulley there you will see a square notch. Invest in a breaker bar,since this is a consumable item you may want to replace the belt every so often. The space is limited but in can be done. Stick the socket end on the square notch a push down. You will notice the whole belt loosen.At the same time pull the belt away from any other pully to release entire belt. Reverse process to install,which is what you need since yours already took a ****.
p.s You can pick up a breaker bar relatively cheap ($10-15). I broke a belt tensioner by not using the right tool.
