Was this the bolt in center of the tensioner pulley? if so you will need to remove and replace the tensioner assembly, if not which bolt did you break?

    if you can remove the pulley from the rest of the bolt you may be able to remove the broken end by hand and replace the bolt

Need the spec on installing a tension pully for a 2003 ford taurus


Not sure what spec your looking for. I replaced the tensioner pully on my F-150 302 last year though. And basically the bolt is left hand thread and turning the bolt gives the slack in belt needed to take belt off, and put back on. Hope this helps.

Need to no bypass belt for 2002 ford taurus 3.0 u engine


You do not want to open that can of worms. Getting a belt to do that is simply guesswork, and if the thing does not get routed correctly, you will have pullies that are running backwards, which can cause all kinds of problems.

Here is a better solution: A company named MOTORMITE makes pully assemblies that are designed to replace the existing A/C compressor. You simply remove the compressor and this pully assembly bolts on to the compressor mounts. It allows you to not only route the belt correctly, but also allows you to use the belt that the vehicle was originally equipped with, eliminating the guesswork involved in trying to find a belt that will be the right length and have the correct tension to run things.

There is one of these available for your Taurus. It is Part Number 34166 and lists for $39.99 on the AutoZone web site. Click the direct link below to go there and check it out.

1995 Ford Taurus V6-182 3.0L belt tensioner pully Center bolt (bolt on tensioner, not on pulley) sheared off. I already understand I will need to replace the tensioner assembly, that's not a problem....


If you can remove the bolt remnant without damaging the parent metal, you should be able to reinstall the tensioner. Get a new bolt directly from Ford so that you are sure you have the correct length, thread pitch, and hardness. If you are not very experienced in removing broken bolts, you may want to seek some help with this.

How do I release the tension pully so I can replace belt on a 95 Taurus


The tension pulley on this vehicle is spring loaded. You can either place a pry bar on the tensioner pulley and move it for belt removal or you can use a socket on the pulley bolt to move it. Either way do not allow the tensioner pulley to snap back after belt removal. That is a good way to take the skin off your knuckles.

How do you adjust tension for drive belt


first you need to figure out if you have an automatic tensioner or an adjustable one. so look at the pullies which ones are not accesories (ie not an alternator pully, power steering.) some pullies will just be on there own not driving anything. is this pully connected to something like this O>o <--this end is the pully.
pully mounting bolt ^ ^arm with hole for rachet
or does it look like the pully is attached to a threaded pole.

the auto adjuster need a rachet to pull back on it (because it's spring loaded) while you install the new belt.

the other need the nut on the pully loosened and the threaded pole loosened will move the pully removing tension from the belt (opposite will tension the new belt).

tighten belt until you can only twist it in half.

REPLACING BELT ON MY 2000 TAURUS.HAVE BELT OVER ALL PULLYS,BUT LAST ONE ,DON'T KNOW HOW TO PULL BACK PULLY AND GET BELT ON AT THE SAME TIME.


locate the tensioner... you need a "breaker" bar with a 3/8 inch socket head... a rachet would do with a long enough handle. there is a square hole in the tensioner... you need to release pressure on the tensioner long enough to get the belt on.

1995 FORD TAURUS 3.0 V6


hi,

let me clarify the belt names for you before that, the fan or serpentine belt is the belt which all the accessories run on like the alternator and power steering pump and is different from the timing belt completely. the timing belt is hidden away and you cannot see it on most cars and keeps the camshaft in sequence with the crankshaft, Im not entirely sure but I believe ford V6s have a timing chain. heres the deal, the idler tensioner pulley has to have some tension put on it to bend it up and out of the way while you place the serpentine belt, study the ider tensioner pulley closely and the diagram under the hood, the idler pulley has a large bolt in the middle which you have to put a socket and wrench on .using force against the spring loaded pulley, either push down or up on the pulley with the wrench to temporarily give you the clearance needed to set the belt and gently release, (having a helper helps) once you doublecheck that the belt is PERFECT then start the car. My 83 LTD's idler pulley is adjusted with a bolt, I believed they have changed it to the spring loaded design that I spoke about above, if its the spring loaded design, that should do it,
good luck
