There is no problem with reinstalling the Serpetine Belt. But what have you done about the pulley that is locked up?

You need to find the bad pulley or you will smoke a belt before you leave the driveway. Unplug the wire on the A/C clutch pulley if the compressor is locked up. You need to do this because the A/C will cycle when the dash is set to Defrost setting as well as on AIR.

The idler pulley is the spring loaded tensioner. It is common to lock up. If this pulley is bad, you can keep using the A/C and just replace the Idler pulley.

Check the Alternator, water pump, anything that turns to find the lockup. The timing is done inside the engine with a steel timing chain and is not a part of the Serpetine belt.

Serpentine belt keeps breaking


whichever pulley it is sliding off of is not straight. check the alignment of ALL the pulleys and make sure there is no play in them. They should all be solid with no wobble. My guess would be a bearing is bad allowing play in the pulley which lets the belt "walk" to the edge.

Car is running hot occasionally and the serpentine


Well there's only part that has to do with the cooling system and serp belt - the water pump!! Maybe it's starting to seize or has too much play. Either way, when you change the water pump, replace the thermostat and flush the system very thoroughly, those 98-99's are notorious for rust build up. Make sure to pull the heater hoses off and flush the heater core too. After all said is done, purge the coolant and make sure there is heat from the blower. If not you're going to have to replace the heater core because that gets clogged sometimes when flushing.

'93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC


You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.

Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.
