How do I change the serpentine belt on a 96 Ford contour


That would depend upon what engine were installed, and possible what accessories (A/C) as well. Need engine size and whether it is turbo or not to determine.

Replace drive belt


Are you talking about the cam drive belt or the accessory drive serpentine belt? What engine, the 2.0 liter 4-cylinder, or the 2.5 liter V6? If it's the serpentine belt, does it have air conditioning?

Battery light on no powersteering on my 96 ford contour


Sounds like the serpentine accessory drive belt on the engine is either broken or has come off. It drives the alternator and power steering pump, as well as the air conditioning compressor and (depending on the engine) the engine coolant pump. Check the belt (it's on the right, or passenger, side of the engine, between the engine and the fender) and replace it if needed. Also, check all the pulleys that it gos over to make sure they aren't loose. There should be a diagram under the hood of your car that shows how the belt goes on.

Timing belt broke on 1996 Contour; sepentine belt replaced only 3 yrs. ago - related?


Not at all. Your serpentine belt is in the same area as the timing belt, however is NOT related to the function of your timing belt.

If you have a 4 cylinder 2.0, then you have little to worry. Most of the contour 4 cylinder engines are supposed to be "non-interference"... which basically means that if the timing belt breaks, then there is not much risk of your contour's engine to have internal damage!

So... Replace the timing belt, and you should be back on the road within 1 day.

Replacing serpentine belt, does the arm thats attached to the tension have to be removed?


To release the tension on the adjuster requires a wrench on the wheel bolt or there is a 3/8 square hole near the wheel that can take a 3/8 rachet.

Serpentine belt


you put the belt on by putting a rachet on the tensioner pully and it only goes one way and that will losen the belt so you can slide it on the last pully prolly best one for last is the alternator pully and after it is on you let go of the tensioner pull and it will tighten right up
