Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
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

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.

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.

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+.

No solution. Just got the EXACT same issue last weekend. myfordfreestyle notes said to remove air intake and clean throttle body with basic tb cleaner. seemed to help, but getting some more engine reving during routine shift into park situations.
Any ideas out there? =H
