SOURCE: 2004 Ford Freestar Serpentine Belt

Some are actually spring loaded and others just have a slot that allows for adjustment. Either one of those types should be visibly different.
If the belt is not used for cam timing, the adjustment may be done with one of the accessory items such as AC compressor, the alternator or the power steering pump. In this case, the adjustable device will have one pivot bolt and another that goes through a slotted area to allow the device to 'swing' for adjustment.
The pivot bolt should be only a little loose so one can just barely move the adjustable device, while the adjustment bolt should be free while adjusting.  This may help not losing the adjustment after having set the belt tension correctly.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Replacing rear brake pads on 2006 Freestar ..piston won't move back with c clamp

I just had this problem myself. I ended up removing the caliper completely and drained it of all of it's fluid. I then held it in my hand and used an 2" round bar to beat the piston back down. once you break it loose it goes fairly easy. then bolt it all back up and bleed the brakes

How to replace a belt tensioner in a 2004 freestar


First get the new part and also a new belt.,small tube of blue lok-tight..Use safety glasses and work on cold engine..You can also disconnect negative cable from battery for safety in case you drop a tool on alternator and create an arc that could blow a fuse or worse..set parking brake and in park...Look at belt configuration and draw your own picture of the routing...However you should have a small sticker under hood that shows you the correct routing...You will need a good long slim Ratchet to remove belt and tensioner.also regular socket set with short well metric sockets..They make a special slim tool to remove and install belt..It makes it a lot easier...Remove belt...,remove tensioner...Pay close attention how tensioner sets in place..Install new tensioner in same position..use blue lok-tight on bolt threads to mount tensioner..torque it tight but not too tight,,.Install new belt.,Make positively sure belt sits in all grooves of all pulleys while routing..Double check routing again to make sure belt is perfectly set in all pulleys..Tug on belt with hand to make sure all is good and fit....Make sure all tools are removed from under hood before starting engine .......Start engine to verify all is correct...

How to install an alternator


Sorry but this does indeed have a tensioner pulley. I just replaced an alternator on my 2005 ford freestar, I did this without adjusting said pulley. There are 3 bolts on the alternator, install new alternator with only one bolt, put the belt over the alternator pulley, use a piece of metal to pry the alternator into place and drop in second bolts when in correct position. (I used a a piece of iron flatstock. Took 15 mins from start of project till the end.

Install Serpentine Belt 2004 Ford Freestar


Click on the following free direct Link. It has the correct Serpentine/Drive Belt Diagram for your 2004 Ford Freestar. You either have the 3.9L or 4.2L V6 Engine. I am not sure what Engine options (AC/No AC, etc.) you have. If this Diagram is not correct: check on the underside of your Hood for the correct Belt Diagram. However the below "How To" remains accurate.

http://www.2carpros.com/car_repair_information/year/2004/make/ford/model/freestar/2004_ford_freestar_drive_belt_routing_diagram.htm

"HOW TO":
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with an Automatic Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagram 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.

How do I asjust the serpentine belt on a 2005 ford freestar?


It should not require any adjustment. the right tension is provided by the idler pully. If you want to release the tension for serpentine removal or examination release the tension on the idler pulley in the rear of the motor, spin the nut in the center like you were tightening, and the pressure will be released from the serpentine belt. Reversely, the appropriate tension will be given using the same way when the strap is reinstalled.

All you need is a 13mm boxed end wrench. The tensioner pulley is the one all the way on the bottom towards the rear of the van. You can reach it under the van. Slide under the van in front of the passenger front tire and you will wee the pulley. Put the wrench on the bolt and pull towards you to release the tension on the belt.
