Serpantine belt repair


Some vehicles have a idler arm which takes a 1/2 inch ratchet. You move the idler over to get the tension off the belt;remove,replace. A Dodge is probably like a jeep which has a movable idler. You loosen the hex head bolt in the center of the idler and loosen the bolt running along the side of the same bracket. This moves the idler down to take the tension off the belt. Remove it and make sure to route the new one in the same way. There is usually a diagram on the top of the fan shroud or radiator support to show you the correct routing. Hope this helps.

Why belt keeps shredding


usually due to a bad bearing, or from resistance due to a frozen or failing assemble, as in power steering, alternator, or an idler. The best way to determine is to remove the belt and check all pulleys for play and resistance.

How do i get to the serpantine belt on 96 lincoln continental


Step 1 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.
  • Step 2 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.
  • Step 3 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.
  • Step 4 Unscrew the idler pulley belt until the idler pulley loosens enough to allow the belt to be removed.
  • Step 5 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.
  • Step 6 Insert the new belt in accordance with your Lincoln's belt installation chart.
  • Step 7 Tighten the idler and tensioner pulleys an assistant with a pry bar may be needed to properly tighten your Lincoln's serpentine belt.

    Very squeaky belt or pully, use to stop when gas pedal applied but now squeaks when gas pedal applied and most idle times. Been using wd40 but doesn't work as good now


    1999 probably has a serpantine belt (multi grooved). I would guess that you may have a squeaky belt or more likley a bad bearing in on of the idler pulleys. Remove the belt and spin the idlers by hand. If one feels rough or makes noise replace it.

    Ineed to replace the serpintine belt, mine shreded, went and purchased replacement from lordco auto parts, could not seem to get belt to tighten up could you please advise the correct belt part # as well...


    There is a idler wheel that has a bolt that when loosened will cause it to spring back. As you lay under the car with your feet first inward ( looking straight up from under vehicle snake the belt through and over the pulleys then pry back with a long pry bar the idler pulley lever after loosening bolt on wheel or lever as you put the belt over the pulleys. I have done this belt on a 1999 528 i it is a unpleasant job without a diagram showing the serpentine pulley arrangement, there is a second idler pulley located slightly higher than the release locking idler pulley don't confuse the two, I would advise aquiring a serpentine belt diagram (cd repair manual on ebay motors) unless you are confident you can figure it out through trial and error.

    Serpentine belt doesn't seem to fit


    Not quite sure how many idlers it should have, but does your car have A/C? Serpentine belts for any car that have the A/C option are sold in two different lengths, the A/C one being longer. If this is not the case, ask your NAPA parts person for the routing diagram for your vehicle. Having worked for them in the past, I know for a fact they have easy access to them. Sometimes with serpentine belts, even experienced mechanics get confused and can`t reroute it right without a diagram.
