ADJUSTMENT 1.8L Engines ALTERNATOR AND WATER PUMP BELT

  1. Loosen the alternator adjusting bolt.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Loosen the alternator mounting bolt. NOTE: Do not pry against the stator frame. Position the prybar against a stronger point, such as the area around a case bolt. Fig. 1: A belt tension gauge should be placed on the longest span of the belt to check tension — 1.8L engine how do u change a serpentine belt - 90981g05.gif

  4. Position a suitable belt tension gauge on the longest accessible span of belt and tighten the belt.
  5. Adjust the tension to 86–103 lbs. (383–461 N) for a new belt or 68–86 lbs. (304–383 kg) for a used belt.
  6. If a belt tension gauge is not available, adjust the tension to 0.31–0.35 in. (8–9mm) deflection for a new belt or 0.35–0.39 in. (9–10mm) deflection for a used belt.
  7. Tighten the alternator adjusting bolt to 14–19 ft. lbs. (19–25 Nm).
  8. Tighten the alternator mounting bolt to 27–38 ft. lbs. (37–52 Nm).
  9. Lower the vehicle. Fig. 2: Alternator and water pump pulley belt routing — 1.8L engine 90981g06.gif
POWER STEERING PUMP BELT
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Loosen the power steering pump mounting bolt and nuts.
  3. Adjust the power steering pump and, if equipped, the air conditioning compressor belt tension by turning the pump adjusting bolt. Fig. 3: Power steering pump belt routing and locations of the mounting bolts, nuts and adjusting nut — models without A/C

  4. Tighten the power steering pump mounting nut near the pump adjusting bolt.
  5. Position a suitable belt tension gauge on the longest accessible span of belt and tighten the belt.
  6. Adjust the tension to 110–132 lbs. (491–589 N) for a new belt or 95–110 lbs. (422–491 N) for a used belt.
  7. Check for proper belt deflection. For a new belt (one with less than 10 minutes of run time), the deflection should be 0.31–0.35 in. (8–9mm). For a used belt (one with more than 10 minutes of run time), the deflection should be 0.35–0.39 in. (9–10mm).
  8. Tighten the power steering pump mounting nut, located near the adjusting bolt, to 27–38 ft. lbs. (37–52 Nm).
  9. Tighten the pump mounting bolt behind the pulley to 27–40 ft. lbs. (36–54 Nm), and the remaining pump mounting nut to 23–34 ft. lbs. (31–46 Nm).
  10. Lower the vehicle. Fig. 4: Power steering pump belt routing and locations of the mounting bolts, nuts and adjusting nut — models with A/C 90981g08.gif
1.9L Engines The accessory drive belt for 1.9L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner. NOTE: Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.

2.0L Engines The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner. NOTE: Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension. The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced. Fig. 6: Drive belt routihow do u change a serpentine belt - 90981g23.gif.0L SOHC engine with A/C 90981g23.gif

How to put a serpentine belt on a ford zx2 4 cylinder


The serpentine drive belt on a Ford Escort ZX2 snakes its way from the crankshaft pulley out to the engine accessory pulleys and the serpentine belt tensioner. The serpentine belt system's design employs only one belt, held taught with the automatic belt tensioner, eliminating the need for the multiple belt system used on earlier model year Escorts. When the belt begins cracking, fraying or losing ribs, it's time to replace it. If you have entry-level auto-repair skill, you can change a belt on a Ford Zx2 in about 45 minutes. http://www.lightdeal.co.uk
