SOURCE: serpentine belt came off need to know how it goes back on

this is hard to exsplain without showing you a photo ,but i will try. first get the belt around the engine crankshaft which is the pully closest to the bottom and center of the engine. when standing in front of engine start to lead the belt to the right and connect to power steering pump then up to generator, next thare is going to be a smooth pully not groved like the others to the left,put the smooth side of the belt on bottom of this pully and continue left to the ac/compressor go around ac/compressor andstraight down to the belt tensioner , and then right over to the water pump which has a smooth pully not grooved. remember the smooth pullys will always carry the smooth side of the belt and the grooved pullys the grooved side of belt. the belt tensioner will half to be released by a serpantine belt tensioner tool sold at your local auto parts store. these instructions is for 3.8 liter engine, if you have a 4.6 liter engine it will be different, so repost stating that you have a 4.6 if this dont help

SOURCE: how to replace accessory serpentine belt on 1996 Riviera

The supercharged 3800 engine uses two accessory drive belts. The outer belt drives the supercharger. The inner belt drives the generator, power steering pump, coolant pump and air conditioning compressor. All driven accessories are rigidly mounted to the engine. Drive belt tension is maintained by the spring loaded belt tensioner. Each belt has its own tensioner.
Remove: Place a jack with a block of wood on it under oil pan to support engine. Caution : Be sure the wood block extends past the width of the oil pan to avoid damage. 
Torque axis engine mount bolt where it connects the mount to the engine mounting bracket. 
Electrical connector from crank sensor. 
Engine mounting bracket lower stud and lower engine to allow stud to clear frame rail. 
Raise engine and reinstall bolt into torque axis mount. Lower engine to allow spacer to be removed. 
Belt(s)

Istalling: Belt. 
Spacer. Remove bolt from torque axis bracket and lower engine. 
Electrical connector to crank sensor. 
Mounting bracket stud. 
Raise engine and install torque axis mount bolt. 
Tighten bolt to 87 Nm (52 lb. ft.) 

Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: Is the serpentine belt and the timing belt the same thing?

Your serpentine belt and timing belt are not the same thing. If your serpentine belt breaks, you will lose your alternator, your cooling system, air conditioning, and your power steering. In turn, it will leave you stranded in a very short period of time.

How do you tighten a loose serp. belt for 1997 mercury cougar xr7


There is no adjustment on the serpentine belt. I'm assuming that you have a 4.6 since it's an XR7. There is a spring loaded tensioner that keeps the belt in proper adjustment. The tensioner may be bad, or just corroded in one position. If there's no diagram for the belt routing under the hood...draw one. Then remove the belt and carefully persuade the tensioner to move. Careful not to break it or it's mount. If it doesn't move, it's going to need replacing. It's the one on the little arm, the arm should move.

There should be a diagram of how the belt goes on right under the hood, right next to the radiator, if it is gone then go to "autozone.com" and look up the info there.
