SOURCE: how to replace my serpentine belt myself

Well first I suggest that you get a piece of paper an pencil. Draw on the paper the exact position of all your pulley's and then in a different color draw the belt while its on the pulleys mapping out the exact route around each one. Believe me, if you don't and you also don't have the service manual, you will be at it for a while unless you have a very good memory. after that, find the tensioner pully. there should be a 1/2 inch drive opening on the tensioner where you can put a wratchet or a breaker bar. Use a little muscle to move the tensioner away from the belt and when there is enough slack remove the belt with your other hand. Some tensioners have a nut you can tighten to keep it in the "no tension on belt" position. Installation is reverse of removal. I hope this helps. merry christmas

Need to remove the old bearing from a 1994 ford thunderbird and replace it by hand. How do I do this and which direction do you go for removal.


bearing come out on the side they went in.
bearings r 2 pieces, the bearing and its race.
bearing is held in by some bolt arrangement so removing that allows bearing to come out.
race is press fit and requires a removing tool or access to the rear of bearing, a hammer and something to go between hammer and rear edge of bearing - then tap around edge to move it out.

U are going to have to pull the gas tank out and replace the fuel pump inside the tank, this is common when you run the gas completely out, the pump is cooled by the gas it runs in, if u run it low allot it burns out the pump bearings very quickly.
