Hi

Yes I too am confused too ? the belts don´t just come off.!

Normally the either snap, or loose teeth, or the water pump bearings go.

Sounds like your timing belt tensioner pulley may be at fault, it is adjustable, and the locking bolts/nuts may have come loose.?

Hope this is of help.

Good Luck !

John.

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.

Ford escort zx2, can't get a pictue of the right way the serpetine belt go on


Hi there!

As a general rule, fit it over grooved pulleys, then bring it over the tensioner pulley to run on the flat side. It will only go on in one position.

I'll search for a diagram for you if you give the engine details.

Thanks.
