Question about 2005 Ford Freestar
We have bought two different fan belts in 2 days. Both seem too short. Even when we use the tension pulley to get more slack we still cant get it on. We need a digram or instructions on how to get it on.
A little late for a reply but . . .
When we acquire any vehicle, one of my first purchases is an aftermarket service manual as insurance against getting ripped off my less-than-honest repair shops and to have with the vehicle while on the road in case of a failure I can diagnose or correct myself.
Either Haynes or Chilton will have a publication for your Ford; they cost $17-$30 dollars and are available at about any parts store.
If you do have the correct belt, you may have to compress the tensioner and still pull off one of the pullies to mount the belt over all of them and then slide the removed pully back onto its shaft. Been there, done that.
