Here's how to get a serpentine belt on or off (You'll need to do both). It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.


On:

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name suggests, is to keep the belt tight. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
Off:
  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name suggests, is to keep the belt tight. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt off one of the pulley's (A/C or Alternator is best)
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

Did you take it off? Did it fall off? There might be a picture of this routing on the car under the hood. Find the tensioner and yank on it while putting the belt on.

If it's the 3.0L Vulcan engine (OHV- your alternator will be on top on the passenger side of the engine compartment), Crankshaft pulley- to A/C pulley- to Power Steering pulley- to Idler pulley- to Alternator pulley- to Water Pump pulley- to Tensioner pulley- to Crankshaft pulley.

I need a belt routing diagram for a 2000 ford taurus 24v dohc engine. Know where I can find one on the web? (No sticker under the hood. And I was dumb enough not to pay attention when I took it off.)


OK, one doesn't need a belt routing diagram to reinstall a new belt.

Just route the belt so that one by one you put the ribbed part of the belt up against the ribbed pulleys, and the smooth part of hte belt up against the smooth pulleys. Do this until one arrives at the tensioner and release tension with a breaker bar to put the belt on the final tensioner pulley.

Check that the tensioner has enough spring load for the belt to maintain the right friction against all of the serpentine pulleys.

That's all there is to it.
