Disconnect the positive terminal lead to the battery and loosen the3 bolts to the alternator remove old one and reinstall new one ...using a grow bar or prybar rest it behind the alternator upper bracket and give some tension to it causing the belt to tighten then secure bolts and reattach the + positive lead terminal ..

SOURCE: 1999 ford cougar v 6 fan belt fitting

OK, having REAL hard time looking up the diagrams today, however, given that the engine will turn (at the crankshaft) in a clockwise direction, 1) first locate the tensioner pulley(s) {there is usually only one per belt, and they are mounted to a bar/ arm that will move, SEE FIG A} AND the idler pulley(s) for each belt/ pulley track {the path over each set of pulleys as they are away from the engine face} ((e.g. if there are two pulleys on the crankshaft that are face to face, then there would be two tracks for a belt (one each) to go around all of the pulleys on that track)){e.g. #1 in FIG A is one belt track/ path. and # 3 is a different track/ path}



12_3_2011_8_31_38_pm.gif where #2 is the tensioner pulley in this example.

2) starting from the crankshaft, go along the bottom of the pulley towards the left of the engine face to the next pulley, if that pulley is smooth on the round part, then that means that the outside of the serpentine belt goes there, if it is grooved, then the inside of the serpentine belt goes there. and follow the path around the clock (so to speak ) for each path.

Some parts dealers will show you the diagrams for your vehicle, but some won't. the diagram(s) MAY be in your owners manual.
good luck.

I have a mercury cougar 2000 automatic, and i would like to change it to manual, mechanics have told me that a Ford Contour and Ford Mystique manual transmission should fit it but other mechanics hav


Don't know it is going to be that easy. Computer installed in your car has Emissions settings for automatic. Gear ratio of car set for automatic. Standard may not perform the same with different drive gear ratio.
Look up your car at AboutAutomobiles.com and see Recalls, Problems, TSBs. This would give you better idea if yours is unique or a common problem.

A belt broke while driving and the fan was not turning when I checked as well as the car started to overheat. It is a 2000 Mecury Cougar 6 cyl. Which belt is it that I should look at?


Obviously the belt that broke! The overheating problem is most likely the fan not turningwhich cools the radiator. Check the pulley where the shaft connects to the fan and that will be theone that needs replacing. If you had a belt that broke, I would suggest changing all your belts and hoses. This prevenative maintenance is cheaper than a tow.

How to tighten fan belt on ford cougar


the 2.5L V-6 has two accessory drive belts, both with tensioners (loosen the large nut in the center of the tensioner pulley, and adjust the threaded adjustment rod), and the 2.0L I-4 has a single accessory drive belt with a tensioner (loosen the clamp bolt & adjust the threaded adjustment rod).
