How do u remove a tensioner pulley mount on a 1997 ford ranger 2.3 liter engine


careful with fords as their method of adjustment is different to most
loosen the centre lock nut on the pulley shaft and then most use either a hex key or another nut in the pulley shaft to turn a toothed cog that runs up or down the adjusted rack
when adjusted retension the lock nut on the shaft
if you want to remove the whole mount then first loose the tension , belt and then remove the lock nut and the pulley will come off allowing access to the mounting bolts.

How to replace a 1998 Ford contour alternater


The Contour alternator is somewhat harder to remove and replace than many cars. The 2.5-liter V6 engine is especially difficult, requiring removal of the right half-shaft to gain access.

WARNING!: ON BOTH ENGINES, BE CERTAIN TO REMOVE THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE! FAILURE TO DO SO CAN RESULT IN DAMAGE AND/OR INJURY!

2.0 Liter engine (4-cylinder)

1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
2. Remove air intake resonators.
3. Remove the air cleaner-to-throttle body tube and the mass airflow sensor.
4. Unplug the connectors and remove the cables from the alternator.
5. Raise and support the vehicle.
6. Release the drive belt tensioner and remove the drive belt from around the alternator. (It is not necessary to remove the drive belt from the engine.)
. Remove the alternator mounting bracket bolts and remove the mounting bracket.
8. Lower the vehicle.
9. Remove the power steering pressure hose bracket retaining nut and bolt and remove the bracket with the hose from the engine lifting eye.
10. Remove the alternator mounting bolts and remove the alternator from the vehicle.
11. To install, reverse the procedure.
==================================================
2.5 Liter engine (V6 engine)

1. Disconnect the negative battery terminal.
2. use a box-end wrench to turn the tensioner pulley clockwise to release tension on the belt. Remove the drive belt from around the alternator. (It is not necessary to remove the drive belt from the engine.)
3. Raise and support the vehicle.
4. Remove the wheel.
5. Remove the wheel well splash shield assembly.
6. Disconnect the outer tie rod from the knuckle assembly, then remove the hub nut from the hub.Tap on the outer spline of the half shaft to make sure it is separated from the hub. Use a hammer and a block of wood to avoid damaging the spline by directly hammering it.
7. Remove the front exhaust Y-pipe from the exhaust system.
8. Unplug all the wires and connectors attached to the alternator.
9. Remove the retaining bolts from the alternator brace and then remove the brace.
10. Remove the halfshaft by pushing out on the knuckle to separate it from the hub and then prying it out of the transaxle with a large pry bar. (Be sure to set a pan beneath the transaxle to catch the fluid that will drain out.)
11. Remove the alternator mounting bolts and remove the alternator from the vehicle.
12. To install, reverse the procedure.


Good luck!

I recommened only the factory part for this. You can buy it from most full service part stores and not just the Ford dealer. The part is
MOTORCRAFT Part # DY959 [ICM] (Ignition control module) $176.79
You can also mail order it from a site I use called rockauto.com the price given above is from that site.

Im replaceing my alternator on my 2.3 liter 2001 ford ranger and I have the two bolds removed faceing the front of the truck on the mounting braquet but Im having trouble finding the third where can it be...


one bolt is to draw the tension that goes through the bracket with the adjustable cut out.Then there is one below it on the pivot point, on the complete opposite side of the pivot point there may be another bolt.If the pivot bolt is a long bolt approx 3-4 inches then there is only the two and all you have to do is work the alternator back and forth, a little force may be required.Sometimes the alternator gets a little stuck between it and the bracket.Please let me know if this helps

Water pump


A manual will have pictures and everything.
Just replaced mine. Five bolts in bracket holding tension idler, A/C compressor (if applicable) and power steering pump must be removed to access 3 bolts in water pump. Just push aside enough to access remaining bolts. Email at dabeam@sbcglobal.net if additional info is needed. Also, diagram serpentine belt before removing. Took me at least 15 attempts and 20 minutes to figure out
