On the right hand side of the engine find bolt in the center of the tensioner arm, this is the only bolt that holds it in place. Look directly across from this bolt and you will see a hose, the power steering resivoir hose is clamped here with a 10mm bolt, remove this bolt. Remove tensioner bolt and lift hose up to get the bolt out. When installing new tensioner, locate small round hole in tensioner mount on the engine, insert small pin on back side of the tensioner arm in this hole, then insert bolt and tighten, install the hise clamp bolt, and belt. Hope this helps, let me know.

My 1994 ford escort seat belt is stuck in the postion by the windshield. I have tryed turning the hex nut behind the drivers side, no luck there. I can here the moter runing and trying to pull the belt to...


I'm no expert by any means but I also have a 94 Ford Escort Wagon, its pretty sweet :) I had this problem a year ago and found out there is a rubber band or track that was defective. I couldn't afford to change out the motor so I helped the moving mount back up the track when the motor was turning. Then I disconnected the power to the seatbelt motor unit on the bottom of the B post right behing the driver's seat. Now, you have to manually attach both seat belts all the time but it saved me spending $100 on the wagon and still retaining all the safety it has to offer. Hope this helped, if only you can get the mount back up the track one more time you'll be good! Oh yeah, also, you won't have power that turn's on your dome light anymore when you open your door. I'm going to work on that though and will let you know if I can bypass it to still give it power.

Cannot find belt tensioner on 2001 ford escort


  • Locate the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine. The belt tensioner on the 2001 Ford Escort is located directly under the power steering pump and above the air conditioner pump. The belt tensioner has a 17 mm bolt head in the center of the pulley.

    I have a 94 Ford Escort, installing the timing belt. It's extremely tight and am having trouble getting the belt to settle into the teeth of the camshaft sprocket. How do I get this to fit?


    did you remove the tensioner? or recoil the tensioner? you could have been given the wrong belt- that has happened to me couple of times.

    Serpentine belt replacement


    2.0L Engines
    See Figures 11, 12 and 13
    The accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner.
    Movement of the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension.
    The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
