On the Inside of the Engine Compartment you will find the Routing Sticker for the Belt to Reinstall. Locate the Tensioner (Will look like a Pulley that has one Round Pulley Under the Belt and One larger Round Pulley Mounted Above that. In the Middle of the Large Pulley there is a Bolt. Get a Wratchet and Turn it. It will Lower the Pulley under the Belt and Loosen the Tension Off of the Belt. Remove the Belt. Follow the Diagram Under Hood to Reinstall.

2006 ford fusion keeps throwing serpatine belt

The most common reasons for this are the belt is stretched and not tight on the pulleys, or one of the pulleys is not aligned with the others.

I need a diagram for the serpatine belt

You should have one....either on the underside of your hood or on the top of the radiator. If it is too dirty to see well, try gently wiping it off with some isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and a cotton cloth.

1999 serpatine belt

Hi,the serpentine belt is tensioned automatically by means of a spring loaded tensioner,this is released by using a long 1/2 inch extension bar which fits into a square hole, once pulled back the tensioner can then be held by a nail etc, which is inserted into a hole which aligns with another hole,thus holding the tensioner back in a pre-loaded position to allow you to replace the belt,once replaced you can then pull back the extension bar to remove the nail again and then slowly let off the tension, IF replacing the tensioner, The new one comes pre-loaded with a pin in location to hold it ,hope this is of some help, Bill.
