Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
Hello everyone and happy New Year. Want to replace my serpentine belt on my 1996 6 cylinder Taurus. Is there a special wrench I need, I've tried a standard 15mm on the bolt but it won't budge. Is this one of those idlers that you pry up or down?
Hello, the Tention pully works strangely sometimes. I have a 96 taurus and had trouble myself but the tool you need should be available to rent at autozone or advanced auto for around $25. then you find the socket that fits, and you should be prying counter clockwise. Also you may visit auozone.com for further intructions, but that is what i did. Careful prying in the wrong direction as this could cause your pully spring to weaken, causing further problems.
