    Dont no how to put on serentine belt


    All engines use an automatic drive belt tensioner. No adjustment is necessary. It is recommended that the belt tension indicator mark be inspected with the engine OFF at 60,000 mile (96,000 km) intervals. If the indicator mark is not between the MIN and MAX marks, the drive belt is worn or an incorrect drive belt has been installed.

    Need diagram for serpentine belt on 2001 ford winstar and how to release tension to install


    My sincere apologies for the delayed response.
    I am personally going back to answer your unanswered questions.

    I do not know if you still need this information, but I am going ahead and answering it anyway. You may want to Print the Diagrams for future use.

    CLICK
    on the following LINK. It has the Belt Diagrams you will need.

    The simple rule in removing the Belt: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley away from the belt and towards the "open area" AND remove the belt off from one of the other more accessible Pulleys. They have serpentine belt remover bars/tools available at most auto parts stores and Harbor Freight.

    If you would: Before Clicking: Let me know if this helped you, or if you have any additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.com!
    Again my apologies...

    Replaced belt tensioner and now the belt is to long


    Your complete post does not display. So, I can only assume the rest says your belt is to big or to small. No matter what the case may be you have routed the belt incorrectly on the pulleys. If the tensioner is the same then the belt could not change the length. Rember, the outside smooth side of the serpentine belt rides on the smooth pulley surface and the ribbed pulley rides on the ribbed side of the belt. Look on the radiator cowl or the bottom side of the hood and it should have a routing schematic for you to follow. If it is gone just follow the smooth or ribbed formula above. Good luck.

    Altenator


    Unplug the alternator remove ground to motor.
    Remove serpentine belt.
    remove 2 bolts which hold alternator.
    replace reverse of removal.
    4 out of 10 difficulty.
    Only special tool you will need is a wrench long enough to pull back the tensioner.
    See the radiator support for location of tensioner and serpentine routing.
    While its off, i would suggest replacing the belt too.
