I'm assuming you mean for the serpetine belt? If so, yes you can. It's held on by a single bolt I think. It's generally good practice to change the tensioner when you change the belt. It's not too pricey.

How do i replace 95 Ford Escort diesel timing belt?

The Escort has two belts to replace and also pullies and tensioners. These may be purchased together in a kit. 'Gates' belts are of very high quality. Depending on the mileage of the vehicle, it may also be advisable to replace the water pump. No job for the timid. If you have no experience in changing belts, this is not a good vehicle to start with. Hope this helps.
