SOURCE: Changing idler pulley

you can change it by releasing tension on the pulley arm(as if changing the belt) and then unsecuring the idler arm pulley by means of a large bolt in the center of the pulley, usually reverse threaded. Pulleys cost about 10 bucks, but good bearings don't come cheap.

SOURCE: What is the proper way to replace a belt idler in FORD ESCORT ZX2

Take the tension off the belt using a long handeled breaker and the appropriate size socket on the center bolt of the tensioner pulley. It will usually move to the left, Use great care in placing the socket so you are positive that it cannot slip. I've been bitten before and it hurts greatly. While the belt is relaxed, which takes some pulling, slide it off any of the top pulleys, just one. Your idler pulley is held in place with one bolt through the center. unbolt it and place the new one in place and tighten it up. After this put your elbow grease to work again on the tensioner and slip the belt back over the pulley you took it from. Before you let the tensioner release make sure the belt is sitting properly in ALL of the pulleys. Actually, when you remove the belt originally it's a good idea to hold it up and away by hooking it anywhere with an old coathanger or a resonabe facimile. Thank, Dana

Bolt backed out of idler pulley in my 2008 ford fusion what do I need to do to put my new pulley in


You need a serpentine belt tool, you can rent one at the parts place and while you are there get the new idler. You will also need a wrench to fit the bolt. Remove the belt then take the bolt out of the idler and install the new one, you can use some low strength loctite purple to keep this from happening again. Reinstall the belt, return the tool and get your money back for the rental.

Where is idler pully located


an idler pulley is any pulley that just spins but does no work; that's why it's called idler. look for any pulley or roller which is there just to route the belt somewhere, not attached to any pump or motor or compressor or alternator or water pump, etc. I'm telling you this way because sometimes there are more than one.

1996 Ford Mustang v6 coupe idler pulley and belt tensioner


I guess it depends on what failed.
The idler pulley is a simple pulley with a bearing held on by a large bolt.
If the bolt broke, or came loose, you may have problems keeping a new bolt in place.
If the bearing wore out and came apart, the bolt is probably still in the bracket. A failed bearing is common after 10 or 15 years, a loose bolt is somewhat rare.
The belt tensioner is another pulley mounted on a spring-loaded arm that keeps the belt tight. Same design but a different function.

Im trying to remove my alternator, cant get the belt off.


depending on the motor, you probably have an idler pulley that most fords have, you need to release the pressure on that pulley to loosen the entire belt system, Just look at the belt and look for a pulley that doesn't attach to anything, Like an alternator, Power steering pump, A/c,, It will Just be in line with the rest of the stuff, Normally its 2 bolts, One you just have to loosen for the unit to swing, and Loosen the other one which is the one that holds the idler on the motor

If for any reason, the tensioner is crooked, replace it!!! Also, install the belt with the writing facing you like you are trying to read a book. This WILL (a trick I learned at Mercedes) prevent even a new belt from squeeling!!

Where is the tension pully on a 1993 ford taurus 3.0 motor

  1. Loosen the nut in the center of the idler pulley.
  2. Loosen the idler adjusting screw until the old belt can be removed, then remove the belt.

To install:
  1. Install the new belt over the pulleys in proper contact with the pulleys.
  2. Adjust the new belt to specifications as follows: Turn the idler pulley nut to the right to tighten the belt to a specification of 220-265 lbs. (980-1180 N). Torque the idler pulley nut to 25-37 ft. lbs. (34-50 Nm).

POWER STEERING AND AIR CONDITIONING BELT

On the 3.8L engine, the tensioner has a1/2in. square hole cast into the rear of the tension arm directly behind the pulley. On the 3.0L engine, the1/2in. square hole is cast into the spring housing on the front of the tensioner.
  1. Rotate the tensioner clockwise and remove the belt.
