Draw a diagram of the old belt position before starting so that you can remember where it goes. The idler pully will have a nut that has to be loosened. Just behind the idler will be a long bolt that when turned releases the tension on the belt. screw it until you can easily remove the belt. replace the belt as per your diagram and retension the belt when you are satisified that sufficient tension on the belt exists tighten up the nut of the idler pulley

SOURCE: diagram for fan belt repair

2.0L Engines
See Figures 11, 12 and 13
The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Taurus fan belt replacement

16mm socket along with a 3/8 braker bar or rachet if the car has a remote starter disconnect battery you will see the belt tensioner holding the belt down you will have to put the rachet on there to pry the tensioner away from the belt make sure fingers stay clear and once you get the tensioner off the belt take the other hand and slide the old belt off the alternator I always save the old belt because the new one snaps now you can put the new one on going backwards from the way you removed the old one

SOURCE: How do you replace a driving belt on a 1999 AU ford falcon

start by unplugin the electric fans then remove the two 10mm bolts holding them in, the bottom of the fans are held in by a slot that they sit in so after you remove 2 bolts just lift the fans out. then you will see a tensioner i think it has 3/8 drive square hole in it( could be 1/2'' drive) just pull it down with a long bar with a 3/8 end on it to release the tension, while doing that slide the belt of,. if your car doesnt have a picture diaghram on the under side of the bonnet for drive belt routing draw a picture incorprating all the pulleys an how the belt goes around them. once the belt is of put the new one on exept over the power steering pump pulley, then pull on the tensioner again to release tension and slide the belt over the p/s pulley. these instruction are for the 4.0l falcon motor, the 5.0 v8 is really similar

SOURCE: Focus timing belt replacement.

This is a very very easy timing belt setup. first off you have to remove the valve cover. Then you have to remove the serp belt. Then remove anything thats in your way of the front cover. after you remove the crank pulley re-install the crank bolt. DO NOT LOSEN THE BOLT FOR THE TENSIONER!!!! now spin the crankshaft until the sproket aligns with the timing mark. now at this point the two camshafts should be aligned. now there is a special tool from ford that holds the cam shafts in place. all it is is a 1/4" peice of metal that goes on the left side of the cam shafts to hold them into place. if you mark the cams you wont need the tool. or if you can find something to fit in the left side of the cams that will work too. anyways after that its just the same steps in reverse. very easy to do.

Replace a fan belt on 1999 AU Falcon


replacing fan belts is easy except for some model have a vry little room to work on... to replace belt, 1st look for the tension pulley, its an indipendent pulley that its only purpose it to stretch the belt. at the back of that pulley you'll see a bolt loosen it then lose also the tension bolt located near at that area too... once youve done that it would be easy for you to remove and replace the belt... hope that helps..

I need to replace a serpentine belt on a 1984 Ford Bronco. Can anyone tell me where to find the belt tensioner? Also can the belt be replaced without removing the radiator fan? Thanks.


No - your belt cannot be replaced without taking the fan off. More than likely, you also have multiple belts. You will have a 1/2 inch spot on most of the plates to tighten each individual component. Look for a place to attach a 1/2 inch breaker bar/ratchet next to the alternator, steering pump, smug pump, etc. These should all be v-belts on a 1984, not a true serpentine.

How do I replace a broken fan belt?


if it is a serpentine belt.... there should be a sticker in the engine compartment that will show you the routing of the belt... if you can't see it... look up at the bottom of the bonnet when you open it.

a regular fan belt may require the remove of another belt to put on the new one.
