A 2.0 uses a 13 mm wrench to back the tensioner away from the tension on the idler pulley, a 2.5 uses a 3/8 drive rachet to swing back the idler pulley so you can install the belt. Don't know which engine it is, but find the idler pulley and move it back as in the instructions above. You attach the wrench or rachet and the pulley will move with some force so that you can slip the belt on. hope this helps you, Rick

Replace drive belt


Are you talking about the cam drive belt or the accessory drive serpentine belt? What engine, the 2.0 liter 4-cylinder, or the 2.5 liter V6? If it's the serpentine belt, does it have air conditioning?

Timing belt broke on 1996 Contour; sepentine belt replaced only 3 yrs. ago - related?


Not at all. Your serpentine belt is in the same area as the timing belt, however is NOT related to the function of your timing belt.

If you have a 4 cylinder 2.0, then you have little to worry. Most of the contour 4 cylinder engines are supposed to be "non-interference"... which basically means that if the timing belt breaks, then there is not much risk of your contour's engine to have internal damage!

So... Replace the timing belt, and you should be back on the road within 1 day.

Replacing serpentine belt, does the arm thats attached to the tension have to be removed?


To release the tension on the adjuster requires a wrench on the wheel bolt or there is a 3/8 square hole near the wheel that can take a 3/8 rachet.

Serpentine belt


you put the belt on by putting a rachet on the tensioner pully and it only goes one way and that will losen the belt so you can slide it on the last pully prolly best one for last is the alternator pully and after it is on you let go of the tensioner pull and it will tighten right up
