Just to make sure you have the right part (belt Tensioner), If you push and pull on the serpentine belt, look for the pulley that moves with the belt. That will be the Belt tensioner pulley, there is going to be a slot on the tension arm for a ratchet so you can take the tension off the old belt and slid it off the idler pulley or any one of the other pully's. Good luck and hope this made sense, keep me posted be glad to help.

My idler pulley on my 96 ford explorer is grinding on the bracket that holds it in place and creating a loud grinding noise, what steps would I use to resolve it??


change the idler pulley . its held on by a bolt in the center of the pulley. the bearings are sealed so you can't grease them. but first you have to take the tension off the serpintine belt. that is also another pulley located below the idler.don't know what size bolt on a ford but use a long wrench grab the bolt on the tensioner push to the right like you were tightening it. that will release the tension on the belt. don't take the belt all the way off just off the idler pulley. change the pulley and do tha same to reinstall the serpintine belt. if the belt comes all thr way off under the hood or on the front around the top of the radiator there will be a schematic that shows you how the belt should go around everything. let me know what happens. sometimes the tensioner pulley will grind also so be sure your changing the right pulley

Steps to replacing the serpintine belt


release tension on belt by:
-put a socket/breaker bar or ratched on the tensioner pulley bolt and use it to relieve tension on the belt
-slide belt off tensioner pulley. replace with new belt in same pattern across all pulleys and again relieve tension on the tensioner puller to slide the new belt back on
--you may need to remove the bolt on the tensioner closest to the pulley (i don't know just judging by the picture i found)
---if you don't know what the tensioner looks like look up the part on autozone's website for a picture you can match on your car

Serpentine belt replacement


go to gates.com and click on the Part Locator & Interchange link on the left, enter your vehicle information, look down and click the camera icon next to the serpintine belt, this is a diagram of how to route it. These engines have a tensioner pulley, it has a 3/8" square drive hole in it to release the tension on the belt, I start at the crankshaft and loop around leaving the tensioner for last, hope this helps, let me know
