There was a bolt hidden in the center pivot point. It was discolored from the other bolts by belt dust. Once removed the tensioner came right off.

Lost drive belt, if that's what it's called on Ford Futura year 2000. Hence no power steering, overheating problems, air conditioner problems, etc. If I purchase a new belt, how difficult are they to fit...


There should be a routing label for the belt on the car. Look under the hood or the metal where the radiator is mounted.

The tension pulley has a square hole or square molded fitting for a breaker bar or wrench. You can use that feature or use a trick I learned. The trick I learned works well if the tensioner is easy to get to. There is no rule that the belt has to slip over the tensioner pulley last. Just have the belt positioned to go over the Alternator, press down on the belt and tensioner with the palm of your hand and push until there is slack in the belt.

Then use your other hand and slip the belt over the Alternator and release pressure off the tensioner pulley and you are done. No tools needed.

My serpentine belt is loose and I'm not sure where to tighten it. How do I tighten the belt?


It has an automatic spring loaded tensioner.If it is loose either the belt has stretched beyond its reach or tensioner is bad.transdoc.jpg

Replace serpentine belt



Removal & Installation

  1. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise and remove the drive belt.
    WARNING Never suddenly let go of the tensioned idler pulley. The force of the spring pressure suddenly released may damage the idler pulley mechanism. Always release the spring pressure gradually.

If for any reason, the tensioner is crooked, replace it!!! Also, install the belt with the writing facing you like you are trying to read a book. This WILL (a trick I learned at Mercedes) prevent even a new belt from squeeling!!

I cant move the belt tensioner enough to get belt over alternator pully? Is there a trick?


Put the belt onto all groved pulleys first, then un-tension the tensioner/idler pulley and slide the belt onto it (the tensioner/idler pulley should be smooth with no lip for the belt to go over).

Trying to install new serpentine drive belt. Doesn't look like alternator is adjustable. There is a belt tensioner but I can't get quite enough play out of it. Can't really get a tool on it to hold it...


Some of the parts are hard to see. You should have a square hole in the belt tensioner fixture. This would fit either a 3/8 drive rachet or a 1/2 drive rachet. You will put the rachet or breaker bar in the square hole and push against the spring tension.

A trick to installing the belt is not to use the belt tensioner as the last pulley to slide the belt over. Put the belt over the tensioner and use your body weight to push against it. Then slide the belt over the last uncovered pulley and let off your weight on the tensioner.

I'm changing the water pump and alternator are there any tricks to these?


Drain the coolant first, so you dont have a mess all over the place.

Alternator- make sure you loosen the tension of your belt by applying leverage to the belt tensioner it makes it a lot easier to remove and replace the belt

Tensioner Arm


it should be rather stiff to you if you are trying to move it by hand there is no adjustment for it once its on the car running it should have some movement to it not a great deal but some it will almost look as if its jumping as long as the belt is secure with the tensioner then its ok if the belt is loose then the tensioner is probably bad meaning the spring is no good.
