Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Instructions for replacing a fan belt on a AU Ford Thanks
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
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.

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

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.

2nd is 5.0 & 5.8L

If you require the 7.3 or 7.5 please post back.
