Cant take belt off


Serpentine Belt?

Belt Tensioner uses either a socket or ratchet driver without socket. Usually you pull the tensioner down - counter-clockwise to relieve pressure from belt. Is usually tight you may need a longer lever for leverage.

I hope this helps!

WARNING Use caution when removing or installing the belt and make sure the tool does not slip from the drive belt tensioner or personal injury or damage to the belt tensioner and the belt may occur.

  1. Attach a 15mm socket or wrench to the bolt attaching the tensioner pulley.
  2. On all 3.0L (OHV) engines, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.
  3. On 3.0L (DOHC) engines, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.

To install:
  1. Install the drive belt on all the pulleys except the tensioner pulley.
  2. Rotate the belt tensioner as outlined in the removal procedure to relieve belt tension and install the belt onto the tensioner pulley. Make sure the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys. Make sure the spring keeper releases or improper belt tension will occur.

Replacing tensioner pulley 2004 freestar


whichever direction the bolt must be turned to relieve pressure on the belt... turn it the other way. it may be reverse threaded if the tensioner holds clockwise tension. if the tensioner pushes counter clockwise, it may just be frozen from heat. try putting steady pressure on it with a breaker bar, and then tapping the bolt with a hammer (GENTLY!!). if that fails, you may need to replace the whole tensioner. these bolts are subject to a LOT of heat, and can get pretty badly seized.

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!!

97 Taurus Belt tensioner does not lossen the belt


There should be a square big enough to fit a 3/8" drive ratchet into on the tensioner (should be closest to the pulley), insert the ratchet into that square, then try turning the tensioner, this should release the pressure on the serpentine belt. Hope this helps.
