The belt continues to break beacause its off the tensioner half way and is getting pinched by the water pump pulley....what should i do to get the belt on track(but i also have the belt put on correctly


Is the tensioner in line with the rest of your pulleys? Does it move back and forth freely? If not , replace the tensioner. Do all the other pulleys appear to be in line, and do they move freely? Hope this helps, TJ

I need to replace the serpentine belt on my car. How do I do that?


These instructions will help you . and also the picture below will help you more.
1
Locate the belt-routing diagram, printed on the fan shroud or possibly applied to the underside of the hood. This diagram shows you how to properly route the new belt, as well as identifying the location of the various pulleys, including the serpentine belt tensioner.
2
Move the belt tensioner off the Sable's belt using the serpentine belt tool. The tool connects to the side of the tensioner's arm and essentially acts as a handle for use in moving the tensioner. You can purchase a serpentine belt tool at most auto-part retailers.
3
Slip the belt away from the tensioner with your free hand and release the pressure on the tensioner with the tool. Pull the belt off the rest of the pulleys by hand and then remove it from the engine well.
4
Grab the old belt and new belt with one hand and put your foot through the other end of the belts. Stretch them both to their full length and check to ensure their both the same size. The old belt may have up to one-inch of extra length due to normal stretching that occurs during the belt's service life.
5
Wind the new belt, rib side to the pulley, around the crankshaft pulley. Consult the routing diagram and route the belt to the next pulley on the diagram. Continue to route and then check the diagram until you have the belt wound around every pulley except the belt tensioner pulley.
6
Double check to make sure the belt routes exactly as shown on the diagram and then move the tensioner aside once more so you can route the belt over the tensioner pulley as shown in the diagram. Move the tensioner back into place slowly and remove the tool.

Good luck

Only thing to know really is when you're retensioning the new belt is adjust the tensioner so you have about an inch of movement on the longest run between pulleys. Any tighter and you put too much strain on the bearings any looser it will squeal. If it does squeal just tension it a little more til it stops. Might need tensioning again after a few miles because it will stretch a bit.

My belt is still loose after i changed out the


You will need an alternative wrench. The alternator wrench will grab the alternator for you and allow you to move the alternator to make the belt extremely tight. However, depending on which engine you have, you may have a serpentine belt which is tightened automatically with an tension wheel. If this is the case you have the wrong size belt and need to obtain the correct, smaller belt.

Tensioner Removal


the 15 mm that is on the tension pulley is not to be taken off. put the bolt back in snug. put the 15mm back on it and pull upwards on the bolt/pulley and that will remove the tension fro the belt enough to remove the belt. and do the same thing to install the new belt. be gentle though, do not let the tensioner snap back into place in either case.

96 Mercury Sable (Serpitine belt)


there should either be a whole for a ratchet or there is a nut on the tension pulley that you will have to size a socket to. put either tool on and pull in the direction of up( you'll see what i mean when you get there). be gentle once you have the belt in place not to let it snap back into place so as to not cause any damage anywhere else.
