You could just tighten up the fan belt. Loosen off 3 Bolts on the alternator just enough to be able to move it, then retighten. Stuff the idea of buying a replacement, for something that will last the lifetime of the car.

My 2000 Ford focus was making a grinding noise when driving the power stering went out and I look under the hood and the belt was loose what do I do... O battery light is now on.


sounds like your belt broke. replace with a new belt. battery light is on because the belt is not spinning the alternator. If it busted you should be able to pull it right out. Make sure to check the tensioner pulley, alternator pulley, power steering pump pulley and ac compressor pulley for free play(if you can make it spin with your hand it's good) and make sure that they're not binding or making any grinding noises. If the belt has never been replaced, then most likely it gave out.

How do you tighten the fan belt?


Focuses use an automatic belt tensioner which has no adjustment (as its spring loaded) if your belt is not tight enough replacement of the tensioner could be necessary..if you're asking due to a squealing problem check the pulley on the tensioner and the idler pulley..they are a common part to need changing

I have a 2003 Ford Focus ZX5 and have had a great deal of work done in the last 3 weeks. I have new spark plugs, wires, gasket cover, oil change and the motor mounts replaced. After picking up my car...


It depends if the Serpentine Belt is worn or not, i.e. cracked, glazed, dryed out. If it is good and the belt is still squealing than it may be a bad Belt Tensioner, which is not keeping the belt properly tensioned. (Loose Belt) Replacing the Belt will not solve the problem of the car running hot. You will need to fix the Electric Fan that is not working, because if you keep on running the car hot all the time you may blow the Head gasket to your engine which will cost you about $800-1100 dollars to repair.

My ford focus zetec makes a rattleing noise


spraying WD40 on drive belts is not a good option as it can cause slippage it is better to use silicon spray or ordinary soap,rub the soap on the belt when the engine is stopped,as for the squeak it could well be the tensioner replace it first it may be the cheapest to start with.....hope this helps....cheers

Need to change a fan belt on a 1.6ztec se ford focus need a picture/diagram to show me how to do it


up underneath the hood if the car has not been in an accident there should be a diagram showing you the way the belt should go back on also if you look at your belt just underneath the belt there is a belt tensioner normally using a 3/8 socket and pulling down or up on the tensioner will release the tension on the belt
