Question about 1997 Ford Taurus
There is a small pulley called a tensioner pulley. The pulley is spring loaded. The pullye uses a 15mm or 3/8 rachet head to move it. You have to leverage it out of the way. The entire belt can fall off once you relieve tension. Careful the pulley will lash back once you release counter pressure. There is a diagram of how the belt is laced thru the pulleys. Use the diagram to put the new belt back on. Hook the entire belt in the system and than pull the tensioner back with the rachet or wrench and loop the last little bit of belt over the last pulley. You will not be able to fully lace the belt without moving the pulley out fo the way. You might have a second set of hands to help hold the belt. The first time is the hardest. Good luck and let me know if all went well.
