That's it to the right. You can insert a ratchet or breaker bar into the square opening up top to release tension. Good luck

SOURCE: Replacement Procedure for 2006 Ford Taurus Alternator

You will need a long 15 mm wrench for the belt tensioner. Pull the wrench to the front of the car very hard to make the tensioner move. Remove the belt from the idler pulley below the alternator. Remove the 15mm bolt on the right side of the alternator (looking at the pulley on the alternator). Remove the 13mm bolt on the support bracket and the support bracket from the alternator to the bracket. Disconnect the electrical connector and the battery cable at the alternator and remove the alternator. Install in reverse order. I hope this has been helpful. Please leave a good rating.

SOURCE: Can't find where to loosen tension on Ford 2006 ZX5 Focus

There is no belt tensioner for this model. these run with strech belts. The new belt has to be fitted with a special tool, which some motor factors supply with the new belt kit. To remove the old belt you simply cut it. But fitting the new belt is a bit fiddley if you have never done the job before.

SOURCE: do I need to change transmission fluid on my 2005 ford freestyle

The high pressure filter and fluid are supposed to be changed at 60k intervals. Ford has a very specific oil for this transmission and the service fee will be $300 to $450 - mine was around $420.

No other car place will touch the CVS transmission in a Ford Freestyle and most Ford dealerships are clueless on thier maintenance and repairs. On most issues that crop up the first thing they want to do is swap it out - for $4000+.

2006 freestyle was just inspected by a ford dealer 4 days ago. according to the technician, pads and rotors are good. The car vibrates alot when brakes are applied for an average stop. I can feel the...


a visual inspection would not show up a warped disc/rotor,so as a first step(cheapest)i would change both front rotors/pads but buy genuine parts.(rotors only last about 50/60k before you need to change them anyway)and as mentioned to another person,by the time you buy the bits, take the wheels off,remove the calipers etc you might as well take it to autozone and keep your hands clean.....it only takes an hour, tops....

06 ford freestyle can't find the oil plug


Usually on the right side of the engine oil pan. Not the transmission. It is always on the side where it can't get knocked off by railroad tracks or other road hazards. Hope this helps.
