If you run the engine at idle you will see the tensioner pulley move, the movement will be slight but steady.

Hi there weekie,

Simple and easy. Really.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • The tensioner pulley is on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt off.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

SOURCE: how to release tension on 1995 chevy 5.7L serpentine belt

Look at the diagram which should be on the radiator fan shroud.  This will show you the path the belt takes around the myriad pulleys on the engine.  There is a tensioner pulley whose only job is to maintain the tension of the serpentine belt.  It may be marked on the diagram.  If not, it is the pulley, usually near the top of the engine, that is not the air compressor, alternator, water pump, etc.  I have found that a box-end wrench or a socket wrench which fits the bolt on the pulley, is sufficient.  Just gently swing the pulley away from the belt slightly.  Just enough to release the tension so you can slide the belt off.  You don't have to worry about the bolt coming loose, as it should have far more torque holding it on than you'll put on it to release the belt tension.  Note, that once the belt is off, the tensioner will swing further than it was before, since the belt is not there to stop it.  So when you put the belt back on, you'll have to swing it back down/up to the same position it is in now, if not farther, since the new belt hasn't stretched.

I'm changing nout the serpentine belt and need to know what to loosen to get sone slack in the belt. it"s a 2000 ford expedition with a 4.6l engine.


You need to put a socket with a rachet on the tensioner pulley and manually release the tension this tensioner has a spring in it that you push against to release the tension.

How do I install the serpentine belt on a 2003 Ford expedition?


Hello,Locate the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine.The tensioner is what keeps tension on the belt and keeps the belt from coming off.The tensioner will have a bolt head in the middle of it that a 15mm socket will fit
STEP 2:Look on the hood base where the hood lock attaches to the base and see if there is a belt diagram.This diagram will give you the exact instruction for properly routing the belt across the pulleys.If there is no diagram there,you will need to write down the exact routing of the belt on the pulleys on a notepad
STEP 3:Put the 15mm socket onto the ratchet and put the ratchet onto the bolt head on the belt tensioner.
STEP 4:Turn the tensioner clockwise to relieve the tension on the belt and remove the belt from all of the pulleys
STEPS 5:Remove the new serpentine belt the same way that the old one came off by following the belt routing diagram instruction.Do not put the belt across the tensioner until last.Keep in mind that the belt will only go on one way and be right.
STEP 6:Put the ratchet with the 15mm socket back on the belt tensioner and rotate the tensioner clockwise to give you enough room to slide the new belt across the belt tensioner pulley.Slide the belt onto the belt tensioner pulley and release the belt tensioner.Look over the belt and double check to make sure that the belt is running across all of the
pulleys correctly
STEP 7:Crank the car and inspect that the belt is secure and is staying in the grooves on all of the pulleys.

Thanks

How to replace a zx2 serpentine belt


Click on the following free direct Link. It has the correct Serpentine/Drive Belt Diagrams for your 1998 Ford Escort ZX2, 2.0L DOHC In-Line 4-Cylinder Engine.
The Link says 2000 for the Year, however this is the same as the 1998 Year Model.

http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/2000/make/ford/model/zx2/2000_ford_zx2_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm

"HOW TO":
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them.

Replacing serpentine belt, does the arm thats attached to the tension have to be removed?


To release the tension on the adjuster requires a wrench on the wheel bolt or there is a 3/8 square hole near the wheel that can take a 3/8 rachet.

2000 f250 diesel, how do you release the tension on the belt?


There is a tensioner idler somewhere on the engine. Use a wrench and rotate the bolt in the center so that the pulley moves away from the belt, then use the other hand to slide the serpentine belt out from under the idler.
Slowly release the tensioner.
