1 Answer

No screws

There metric bolts

If you have the metric sockets & wrenches,
you just try some on what you want to lossen
or whatever.

Obviously if you have to ask for a bolt size,
you either have no tools or experience

    My 93 takes a Torx 50 bit for the one that mounts it to the engine. A bad design as mine is striping out.

How to put serpentine belt on a 2004 taurus. instruction & diagram


The 8th digit of your car's VIN (vehicle identification number) tells you the engine
type for your car - your choices for Ford Taurus are U (3.0L), and S (3.0L).
I've included the Ford SHO engine too.

REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION
  1. Attach a 15mm socket or wrench to the bolt attaching the tensioner pulley.
  2. On all 3.0L (OHV) engines, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.
  3. On 3.0L (DOHC) engines, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.


To install:
  1. Install the drive belt on all the pulleys except the tensioner pulley.
  2. Rotate the belt tensioner as outlined in the removal procedure to relieve belt tension and install the belt onto the tensioner pulley. Make sure the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys. Make sure the spring keeper releases or improper belt tension will occur.
Tip: you may want to get (free) a serpentine belt installation tool kit to help with this job.
Both Advance Auto Parts and AutoZone wisely have loan-a-tool programs that permit you
to borrow (for a deposit) their serpentine belt installation kits - which allow their
handy customers to use their auto parts rather than towing it to a garage.

Tryin to tighten the surpentine belt on a 2000 Ford Taurus


Serpentine belts use a spring-loaded tensioner pulley to keep them tight. If the belt is not tight, either it is not routed properly or the tensioner spring is broken. Look for a pulley mounted on an arm by itself, that turns no device such as an air conditioner or pump.

How do you replace the sepentine belt on a 1999 ford taurus?


First, make a very careful examination of the old belt's routing. It may look simple, but once it's off it can be tricky getting it back properly. Find the belt tensioner, ( it will be a small pulley mounted on a movable arm ). There are a few types, some have a 3/8" or 1/2" bolt, some have an indentation that you put a 1/2" ratchet into. Move the tensioner whichever way necessary to relieve tension from the belt and remove the belt from one of the pulleys. Installation is the reverse. You will notice ridges on the edge of the pulleys and grooves between the ridges. Be sure the new belt is seated fully in the grooves and between the ridges. Some vehicles have one pulley with no ridges, if possible route the belt over that pulley last, it is easier to slide it over the smooth edge.

Looking to replace my alternator on a 1999 ford taurus but dont know how to loosen the belt


To loosen the belt use a 15mm socket on the tensioner pulley. Turn clockwise if you have a OHV engine or counterclockwise if your engine is OHC. Turning this bolt will release pressure on the belt allowing you to remove it from the other pulleys.To identify the tensioner pulley it is just above and to the right of your crankshaft.
Hope this was helpful.

I am trying to release belt tension on 1999 taurus. it is standard engine and when i turn bolt clockwise it seem to add tension but when i turn it counterclockwise the bolt loosens what should i do? Is...


hELLO THERE:
NO YOU DO NOT WANT TO LOOSEN THIS BOLT LOOK FOR THE SMALL SQUARE HOLE THAT A SOCKET EXTENSION FITS INTO THIS IS THE HOLE THAT YOU ARE WANTING TO USE AND THEN PUSH IT OVER TO THE DRIVERS SIDE TO MAKE THE TENSIONER LOOSEN THE TENSION ON THE BELT SO YOU CAN REMOVE IT OK
