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.
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.
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.
Unscrew the idler pulley belt until the idler pulley loosens enough to allow the belt to be removed.
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.
Insert the new belt in accordance with your Lincoln's belt installation chart.
Tighten the idler and tensioner pulleys an assistant with a pry bar may be needed to properly tighten your Lincoln's serpentine belt.
