Replacing the serpentine belt on a 1998 Ford Escort ZX2 DOHC with air. The diagram is missing under the hood. Need to find a diagram to show how to route belt back on. Have found several diagrams but none have air conditioning pulley.

Try checking with your parts supplier. They will match the belt # for your vehicle. Sometimes there will be a diagram on the belt packaging. If you have the belt and you know it's the right one, here's a way to figure it out. One side of the belt will be smooth, the other has ridges. The ridges will be on the inside. Pulleys with grooves will have the belt ridges fit into them. Pulleys that are smooth will have the belt go under them so that the smooth side contacts the smooth pulley. They call it a serpentine belt because the belt snakes its way around the pulleys.
Hope this helps.
No Prolem! Look at the pullys on the engine. Notice some are grooved while others are not? The grooved pulleys go on the inside of the belt or the grooved side of the belt, while the smooth pulleys go on the outside or smooth oart of the belt. Works with All belts on all engines!
if there is no white label on top of the radiator guard,
If you buy your belt from Autozone the belt routing is on the
package,If you already bought the belt you could always buy one from AutoZone
and then return it after you use the routing.
1) Start with the alternator.
2) Forward to the smooth idler
3) Forward to power steering
4) Down to A/C compressor
5) Back to crank pulley
6) Forward around tensioner
7) Back glancing off of water pump
8) Back glancing off of ribbed idler
9) Up around alternator (where you started)
2.0L Engines See Figures 11, 12 and 13 The
accessory drive belt for 2.0L engines has no provision for manual belt
adjustment, since these engines use an automatic belt tensioner. Drive
belt slack is taken up by the automatic tensioner. Movement of
the automatic tensioner assembly during engine operation is not a sign
of a malfunctioning tensioner. This movement is the tensioner
self-adjusting and is required to maintain constant belt tension. The belt tensioner has a belt length indicator. If the indicator marks are not between the MIN and MAX marks, the belt must be replaced.
