I would just release tension on the belt with a breaker bar. And put the new belt in by weaving it through the various pulleys, smooth side, followed by grooved side, and so on until the belt is on every pulley except the tensioner pulley.

Again, release tension on the tensioner pulley with the breaker bar, and then put the loop of the belt on that pulley and you're done.

Can I bypass the ac pulley in my 03 Ford focus se 2.0 split port with the serpentine belt made for no ac pulley?

An easier fix. Check with your local parts store to see if Motormite/Dorman makes an AC Bypass pulley. It goes in place of your compressor and you don't have to change the belt routing.

Hello! Sounds like the engine is a 5.3L or 6.0L...If not let me know...Have you removed the serpentine belt? It's a lot easier with the belt out of the way...If you have not, here is the procedure to remove the belt...

Remove the air cleaner resonator outlet duct from throttle body...Install a hex head socket breaker bar onto the belt tensioner...Turn the breaker bar clockwise until the tension on the drive belt is relieved...remove the drive belt from the generator pulley...Turn the breaker bar counter clockwise to release the tensioner arm...Remove belt...Guru..................saailer

Changing the serpentine belt

just need a 12 -14 mm socket, place on tensioner, than you just pry up or down and the tensioner will move. It may be easier to use a long wrench rather than a socket.
