You will have to remove theengine mount in front of the timing cover then jack the engine up with a floor jack be careful not to damage the oil pan i usually put a piece of two by four between the jack and oil oan to keep from crushing it just watch and use your judgement when the engine is high enough.this will give you enough room to replace the tensioner it will still be a tight fit but trust me it will come out

Serpentine belt on 96 saturn sc loose what could it be

Hello there:
Normally a serpentine belt will stay on tight untill it begins to strech out after it streches out to far the tention idler pulley cannot keep the belt tension tight any longer thus resulting in a belt either coming off or other things happening So what i would do is to first remove the serpentine belt and ensure that the tention idler pulley is working good make sure it does not just move freely than get a new belt and install now you should be ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

How to change timing belt

This is how 2.8TD.Remove the belts (fan and power steering)with a 10mm socket un-screw the plastic cover. To remove the bottom pully their is 3 small screws inside the pully (10mm or 12mm) unscrew them and take off the pully. Do not try to remove the big nut. Remove the plastic cover. Their is a small hole in all the drive wheel's their is a treaded hole in the engine block behind each one and a mark on the crank shaft. Turn the engine until the mark on the crankshaft is at the top then push the bolts ( metric course tread 12 or 13 mm head 4 to 5 ins long) through the holes in the drive wheel's and try to screw them in if they dont line up first time turn the crankshaft 1 turn and try again. When they all line up screw in the bolds this keeps the timing in place. Release the tention pully (the one with no tracks on and pushing against the back of the belt) remove the old belt replace. To tighten the tention pully put a small socket bar in the square hole turn until the belt is tight hold the preasure on the socket bar ant tighten the locking screw. Remove the screws job done.

Hi ford focus 2006 in ireland, want to change headlight bulb, but how do i get to it?

The owners manual does tell you - but it is not obvious.
Unscrew the headlight unit - 1 screw
Push down the 2 retaining clips at the back of the unit to release them (long screwdriver needed
Remove the headlight unit so you can work on it - it will come out - try getting the end in the middle of the car out first rather than the wing side
The rest is easy as you have space to work.

It is easier to put the unit back than take it out apart from the clip on the wing side !
