Drive Belt Replacement cant find 97 ford taurus serpentine belt diagram - ani_caut.gif WARNING: IF EQUIPPED, DO NOT ALLOW DRIVE BELT TENSIONER (6B209) TO SNAP BACK AS DAMAGE TO DRIVE BELT TENSIONER OR PERSONAL INJURY COULD RESULT.
NOTE: Minor cracks in the V-grooved portion of the serpentine drive belt (8620) are considered normal and acceptable. If the drive belt has chunks missing from the ribs, the drive belt should be replaced.

NOTE: When installing drive belt on pulley, make sure that all V-grooves make proper contact with pulleys.

    How to put serpentine belt on a 2004 taurus. instruction & diagram


    The 8th digit of your car's VIN (vehicle identification number) tells you the engine
    type for your car - your choices for Ford Taurus are U (3.0L), and S (3.0L).
    I've included the Ford SHO engine too.

    REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
    1. Attach a 15mm socket or wrench to the bolt attaching the tensioner pulley.
    2. On all 3.0L (OHV) engines, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.
    3. On 3.0L (DOHC) engines, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.


    To install:
    1. Install the drive belt on all the pulleys except the tensioner pulley.
    2. Rotate the belt tensioner as outlined in the removal procedure to relieve belt tension and install the belt onto the tensioner pulley. Make sure the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys. Make sure the spring keeper releases or improper belt tension will occur.
    Tip: you may want to get (free) a serpentine belt installation tool kit to help with this job.
    Both Advance Auto Parts and AutoZone wisely have loan-a-tool programs that permit you
    to borrow (for a deposit) their serpentine belt installation kits - which allow their
    handy customers to use their auto parts rather than towing it to a garage.

    Need diagram for placement of serpentine belt for 97 Ford Taurus


    Auto Zone has that information on line here. You didn't say what size engine you have or whether it is OHV or DOHC, but according to their numbers, almost 90% of 97 Taurus are 3.0L OHV.

    Serpentine broken/ cannot get replacement on


    The Tensioner is Located at the Top Front of the Belt Routing System. It has A Large Circle that resembles a Doughnut with a Nut or Bolt Head in the Middle of it. Just Below that there is a Smaller Round Pulley that has an Arm attaching the two Together in the Back of them. The Belt will either go over or Under the Second or Smaller Roller. Look at the Factory Sticker Under the Hood for Proper Belt Routing. Get a Ratchet and Socket that will fit the Bolt on in the Middle of the Doughnut Shaped OR First Pulley. It will be Tight But, it will turn left or right and the Smaller Pulley will let Tension off of the Belt for Removal. Let me know if ya got any Probloms!
