There is no spring tensioner on some of the 3.0 engines. See instructions below. I will paste a pic on the version that DOES have a tensioner at the bottom of this post.

3.0L Engine-Except SHO
ALTERNATOR BELT WITHOUT AUTOMATIC TENSIONER

  1. Loosen the adjusting arm and pivot bolts.
  2. Turn the alternator belt adjusting screw counterclockwise until the old belt can be removed.
  3. Remove the belt.

To install:
  1. Install the new belt over the pulleys. Check that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.
  2. Adjust the belt tension, then tighten the adjusting arm and pivot bolts.

3.0L SHO Engine
ALTERNATOR BELT
See Figure 2
  1. Loosen the nut in the center of the idler pulley.
  2. Loosen the idler adjusting screw until the old belt can be removed, then remove the belt.

To install:
  1. Install the new belt over the pulleys in proper contact with the pulleys.
  2. Adjust the new belt to specifications as follows: Turn the idler pulley nut to the right to tighten the belt to a specification of 220-265 lbs. (980-1180 N). Torque the idler pulley nut to 25-37 ft. lbs. (34-50 Nm).

POWER STEERING AND AIR CONDITIONING BELT
See Figure 2
  1. Remove the alternator belt.
  2. Loosen the nut on the tensioner pulley.
  3. Turn the belt adjusting screw on the tensioner counterclockwise until the belt can be removed, then remove the belt.

To install:
  1. Position the new belt over the proper pulleys, making sure the V-grooves are properly seated.
  2. Install the alternator belt.
  3. Adjust the power steering and air conditioning belt to a specification of 154-198 lbs. (690-980 N) with a belt tension gauge.
  4. Adjust the alternator belt.
3.0L Engine (Except SHO) and 3.8L Engine
VEHICLES THROUGH 1993 WITH AUTOMATIC TENSIONER

See Figures 4 and 5
  1. Insert a 1 / 2 in. breaker bar into the square hole in the tensioner.

On the 3.8L engine, the tensioner has a1/2in. square hole cast into the rear of the tension arm directly behind the pulley. On the 3.0L engine, the1/2in. square hole is cast into the spring housing on the front of the tensioner.
  1. Rotate the tensioner clockwise and remove the belt.

  2. Rotate tensioner counterclockwise and install the belt over the alternator pulley. Make sure that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.
  3. On the 3.0L engine, install the alternator belt for vehicles through 1992.
  4. For 1993 3.0L vehicles, install the drive belt over the idler pulley.

    This information was not helpful at all. I asked for information concerning a 2002 Ford Taurus. The specific request was for the location of the serpentine belt tensioner on a 2002 Ford Taurus. If there is no tensioner, how do you get the serpentine belt back on after changing out the alternator.

Need the spec on installing a tension pully for a 2003 ford taurus


Not sure what spec your looking for. I replaced the tensioner pully on my F-150 302 last year though. And basically the bolt is left hand thread and turning the bolt gives the slack in belt needed to take belt off, and put back on. Hope this helps.

Where is the tension pully on a ford taurus 93?


As you stand outside the engine compartment, facing the serpentine belt part of the motor the "tension pulley" should be in the upper right area of the belt and look like a pulley pressing against and running on the outside of the belt. These are spring tensioners and you need a tool to relieve the tension for easy belt removal and replacement.

Need to know how to put a serpentine belt on a 1995 302 ford motor


Below the altenator is a tensioning pully, insert a 3/8" ratchet or breaker bar in the square hole on the tensioner and release the tension on the surpentine belt and remove the belt. Route the new surpentine belt in place up to the altenator and take the tension off the tensioner and put the belt over the altenator pully. Double check to make sure the belt is riding correctly on all the pullies before starting. Crank the engine over several times before starting to seat the belt. f78f558.jpg

REPLACING BELT ON MY 2000 TAURUS.HAVE BELT OVER ALL PULLYS,BUT LAST ONE ,DON'T KNOW HOW TO PULL BACK PULLY AND GET BELT ON AT THE SAME TIME.


locate the tensioner... you need a "breaker" bar with a 3/8 inch socket head... a rachet would do with a long enough handle. there is a square hole in the tensioner... you need to release pressure on the tensioner long enough to get the belt on.
