If the blots threads are gone then probably the threads in the hole it goes into are gone also. You need to get a thread tap to run into the hole to create new threads and then get a replacement bolt to install into the newly tapped threads. Good luck. You can buy a good tap and die set that will have the thread tappers you will need to so this.

Cannot find belt tensioner on 2001 ford escort

  • Locate the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine. The belt tensioner on the 2001 Ford Escort is located directly under the power steering pump and above the air conditioner pump. The belt tensioner has a 17 mm bolt head in the center of the pulley.

    Click on the following free direct Links.
    This 1st Link has the Diagrams for Removal of the front of the engine components to reach the Timing Belt Covers: DEPENDING ON THE OPTIONS (AC/NO AC) ON YOUR 1.9L ENGINE (SOHC) - Some components do not need to be totally removed, but loosened and swung/kept out of the way inorder to gain full access to the Timing Belt Cover. NOTE: the Water Pump Pulley removal pictorial instructions.
    This 2nd Link has Timing Belt Diagrams for your 1993 Ford Escort, including Diagrams for the Timing Belt Covers. Your Engine the 1.9L is the Single Overhead Cam.
    This type forum to answer that question would literally take dozens of pages. I would strongly suggest you purchase a Haynes or Chilton Manual available at most auto parts stores. You will need the Torque Specifications for each and every Bolt and Nut involved.
    Let me know if this helped.

    We changed the alternator and can't get the belt back on,,,,help.

    Have you attached a socket and bar to the belt tensioner, and released the tension on the belt, which will allow you to slip the belt on? I'm not sure of the exact set up on the Escort, some engines are more difficult than others to get a wrench on the tensioner, you can purchase a special tool if there is not enough room (if you purchase the belt from a parts store, many will loan you the tool). The special tool has a long thin handle for easier access to the bolt, and the long handle provides good leverage to easily move it.

    Changing the alternator belt - easy?

    Yes, you'll have to use a wrench or socket on the bolt in the center of that tensioner pulley, you'll back off the tension to remove the belt and have to back off the tension again when you install the new belt.

    Instruction on how to put timing belt on a 1991 ford escort

    First put the car up on jackstands, remove the front left wheel. disconnect battery, take the drive belt off, remove the drive belt tensioner, put a floor jack under the engine with a block of wood or somthing to support it, remove the motor mount by taking the 3 bolts off of the body and the bolt out of the center of the mount. Remove the crankshaft pulley, this may require a pry bar. Take the bolts out of the front cover and remove it. Take the timing belt tensioner loose by loosening the 10mm bolt and rotating the tensioner with a hex key. remove the timing belt. I would also replace the tensioner while I was in there. Line the cam and crank up with the index marks, the cam has a pointer on the sprocket that lines up with a dimple behind the pulley. The crank has a keyway that lines up with a mark on the block. Install the timing belt and tension it making sure the marks do not move, then rotate the engine by hand 2 revolutions and make sure the marks line up again. After that reinstall everything in the order you removed it and fire it up. -Jared

    Tensioner Removal

    the 15 mm that is on the tension pulley is not to be taken off. put the bolt back in snug. put the 15mm back on it and pull upwards on the bolt/pulley and that will remove the tension fro the belt enough to remove the belt. and do the same thing to install the new belt. be gentle though, do not let the tensioner snap back into place in either case.

    1998 Ford Escort ZX2 Water Pump Housing removal

    I am sure the leak is the water pump based on years of Escort work, The ZX2 is equipped with a 2.0L DOHC V-Tech engine. The water pump is on the front (rt side of car) of the engine block, visible with the hood up. NAPA autoparts replacement instructions are to loosen the belt drive pulley from the pump BEFORE removing the serpentine belt. Once the four bolts are loose, take the belt off (good time to replace?) remove bolts and old water pump (four more bolts)- it will be tight, but it comes out- clean gasket area and install new gasket and pump in reverse order. That includes putting the pulley on and hand tightening the bolts, put on the belt, finish tightening the bolts to the pulley.

    How to change the Belt Tensioner on a 1994 ford escort wagon.

    On the right hand side of the engine find bolt in the center of the tensioner arm, this is the only bolt that holds it in place. Look directly across from this bolt and you will see a hose, the power steering resivoir hose is clamped here with a 10mm bolt, remove this bolt. Remove tensioner bolt and lift hose up to get the bolt out. When installing new tensioner, locate small round hole in tensioner mount on the engine, insert small pin on back side of the tensioner arm in this hole, then insert bolt and tighten, install the hise clamp bolt, and belt. Hope this helps, let me know.
