    THANK YOU BOTH FOR YOUR SPEEDY RESPONSE TO MY DILEMMA...BOTH ARE GREAT IDEAS...

  • whtghst51 Jan 31, 2009

    thanx for all suggestions.. I ended up getting a belt 6 inches shorter (after measuring length bypassing the ac pulley)..it worked like a charm....and I am going to take later advice to buy ac compressor pulley from AutoZone--they are only a few blocks down from where I live...this is alot better than getting entire new ac compressor,,,,

  • freethruhim7 Mar 20, 2009

    I have the same problem. What size belt did you end up getting that worked to bypass the ac compressor?

Not unless you can take about 4 inches out of belt. shorter belt is what you need. take some string and route it just like the belt goes but eliminate the compressor and take that to auto parts store an see if they can match one up for you.

How to put serpentine belt on a 2004 taurus. instruction & diagram


The 8th digit of your car's VIN (vehicle identification number) tells you the engine
type for your car - your choices for Ford Taurus are U (3.0L), and S (3.0L).
I've included the Ford SHO engine too.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
  1. Attach a 15mm socket or wrench to the bolt attaching the tensioner pulley.
  2. On all 3.0L (OHV) engines, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.
  3. On 3.0L (DOHC) engines, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.


To install:
  1. Install the drive belt on all the pulleys except the tensioner pulley.
  2. Rotate the belt tensioner as outlined in the removal procedure to relieve belt tension and install the belt onto the tensioner pulley. Make sure the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys. Make sure the spring keeper releases or improper belt tension will occur.
Tip: you may want to get (free) a serpentine belt installation tool kit to help with this job.
Both Advance Auto Parts and AutoZone wisely have loan-a-tool programs that permit you
to borrow (for a deposit) their serpentine belt installation kits - which allow their
handy customers to use their auto parts rather than towing it to a garage.

Air conditioner is out, so I want to bypass the compressor pulley. What size serpitine belt should I purchase?


Oreilly`s sells an AC replacement pulley for $45 and use the same size factory belt. I would go this route.

Tryin to tighten the surpentine belt on a 2000 Ford Taurus


Serpentine belts use a spring-loaded tensioner pulley to keep them tight. If the belt is not tight, either it is not routed properly or the tensioner spring is broken. Look for a pulley mounted on an arm by itself, that turns no device such as an air conditioner or pump.

Need a timing belt diagram for ford ranger 3.2L engine


Do you mean timing belt or serpentine belt? The timing belt on vehicles only goes on one way - over 2 or 3 pulleys with a possible tensioner holding the proper tension on it.
The serpentine belt is the outer, visible belt that runs the water pump, alternator, power steering pump and air conditioner pulleys with another one or 2 pulleys in there just for fun. There should be a routing diagram for that belt on a decal attached to the underside of the hood - or on the radiator shroud. While it may seem to go on other ways it is crucial to install it correctly. Compare the old belt (if it is available) to the new one for proper length. The correct routing of the proper belt makes sure that all the equipment pulleys are rotating in the proper direction.
