How do you install a fan belt for a 1998 ford escort

The alternator went out on my escort,we had to take the fan belt off in order to get it on.i did'nt see them remove the belt and there is no digram under the hood to show you how to route the belt.i think i put the belt on right,but now the pully wont move either way.does this mean the spring is broken?

    It means that the bearing the bearing on the (take up?)pulley is shot. Remove tension from belt and see if the pully is free. If not replace pully.

Alternator Replacement


You may have a self tensioner which applies belt tension with a spring.

Look for a spot to put a 1/'2"drive breaker bar on it and release the belt tension, then slide the belt off and install new belt. You may need a helper to remove the belt while you hold the tension off,
Its been awhile since I have seen an Escort, i may be wrong!

Fan belt diagram


There is a belt diagram on the emission sticker under the hood, if it is not there I suggest you get an Escort repair manual. I have searched the Web and am unable to come up with qa diagram of the belt.
