Tension pulley for serpentine belt making noise


The Tensioner Pulley Bearings are failing and either the Tensioner Pulley or the Tensioner Assembly (Pulley, Arm and Base) must be removed and replaced.

Click on the following free direct Link. It has several of the Serpentine Belt Diagrams and Tensioners that are possible with your 4.3L V6 engine.

1. Remove the Serpentine Belt.
"HOW TO":
Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
A. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
B. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
C. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
D. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Removing the Tensioner Pulley: See the Diagrams in the Link.
After the Belt has been removed, with the Tensioner resting:
DEPENDING ON WHAT TYPE TENSIONER:
IF the Tensioner Pulley itself HAS a Bolt Head showing, SOME of these bolts can be removed and the Tensioner Pulley replaced.
IF the Tensioner Pulley itself DOES NOT HAVE a Bolt Head showing, then go to the Tensioner Base located at the end of the Tensioner Arm. This should have a Bolt Head Showing. Remove this Bolt and the whole Tensioner Assembly will com off.

When replacing the Tensioner Assembly - MAKE SURE you place the protruding "nipple" on the underside base of the Tesnioner into the appropriate cavity on the engine face.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

How do i get to the serpantine belt on 96 lincoln continental


Step 1 Inspect the belt already in your Lincoln for cracks or wear. It is best to replace serpentine belts early, before any major damage occurs, as a break in the belt will cause a critical failure in a motor vehicle while under power.
  • Step 2 Find the belt routing diagram under the hood, this can usually be found on the top of the radiator mount. Lincolns, even those of the same year model, may have different accessories run by the serpentine belt. So the exact routing of the belt will vary from vehicle to vehicle.
  • Step 3 Loosen the tensioner pulley until you can push it relatively easily. The belt should still be too tight remove, if it is not the idler pulley is malfunctioning.
  • Step 4 Unscrew the idler pulley belt until the idler pulley loosens enough to allow the belt to be removed.
  • Step 5 Make note of the direction of rotation of the serpentine belt as it is important to install the new belt in a way that it is intended to rotate.
  • Step 6 Insert the new belt in accordance with your Lincoln's belt installation chart.
  • Step 7 Tighten the idler and tensioner pulleys an assistant with a pry bar may be needed to properly tighten your Lincoln's serpentine belt.

    If you hear a whistleing sound when you press on the gas peddle ? But after i put belt conditioner spray on the timing belt it sounds clear. but after a period of time the sound comes back


    You might need a new belt, or the spring in the belt tensioner is weak and not holding the belt tight to the pulleys, in which case that will need replacing.

    Serpentine belt


    This is for anybody who has had trouble getting a serpentine belt on. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.

    • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
    • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
    • The tensioner pulley is near the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
    • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
    • Slowly release the tension.
    • You're done
