a socket and a ratchet should do the trick if you can get your hand in there if not slide a pipe over the end of the ratchet you dont need to relaese it much for it to come off A 3/8" hinge handle should do the trick.
where is the tensioner for the serpentine belt on a 2004 ford ranger
Release the pressure on the belt tensioner and belt should slide off pulleys
he tensioner keeps the right amount of tension on the belt. If it is lose, the tensioner needs replaced.
Serpentine belt replacement: (1)rotate the tensioner counterclockwise (2.3, 2.5 and 4.0 engines) or clockwise (3.0 engine) to lift it off the belt. Slip the belt off the pulleys. (2)Hold the tensioner in the released position. Install a new belt and make sure it is routed correctly. Be sure the ribs of the new belt engage the pulley ribs correctly. Release the tensioner. Manual adjustment is not required, it is done automatically by the tensioner. - Haynes Repair Manual Ford Ranger 1993 - 2005.
There is no adjustment, they use a belt tensioner to keep it tight. If it is loose it need to be replaced.
Pry it with a breaker bar
pulley tensioner replacement%ford ranger xlt 3.2l 2wd instructions. do use an ALLEN wrench to loosen the spring or is it a special tool
Looking under the hood standing over the fan look down and to the right of the fan. The tensioner is between the alternator pulley and the crank shaft pulley. There will be a 3/8 inch square hole in the tensioner. This square hole is for a 3/8 inch drive socket or pull handle to release the tension off the serpentine belt Looking under the hood standing over the fan look down and to the right of the fan. The tensioner is between the alternator pulley and the crank shaft pulley. There will be a 3/8 inch square hole in the tensioner. This square hole is for a 3/8 inch drive ratchet or pull handle to release the tension off the serpentine belt
Which ranger do you have because normally you take the air housing off then the serpentine belt then the mounting bolts on the alternator then remove the electric connection. If your trying to locate the alternator it's on the left side of the engine above the tensioner
the best way is use a breaker bar & cheater pipe & loosen tensioner remove belt be careful spring loaded go the same way to reinstall
I wish I knew! I got the old one off by loosening tensioner, but am having a hard time getting the new one on the same way. Please, somebody help!
use a pry bar between the ideler arm and pully. The tensioner is sprig activated. This will take a little pressure, but it should loosen with eaze. after releaseing tensioner, it will tighten back up b/c of the spring.
before it breaks and you get stranded
The Lone Ranger - 1949 Special Edition 3-3 was released on: USA: 25 September 1952
From Haynes Repair Manual for Ford Ranger Pickups 1993 - 2005: "The belt's pathway is illustrated on a decal on the radiator support. Tension is set by an automatic tensioner and manual adjustment is not required. Rotate the tensioner clockwise or counter-clockwise (2.3, 2.5 and 4.0 are counter clockwise, 3.0 is clockwise) to loosen the tension and hold the tensioner in the released position. Install the belt and make sure it is routed correctly. Release the tensioner". Good luck.
Change the belt
Mounted with "left-hand" thread
Find the spring-loaded tensioner pulley on the top of the engine and get a socket to fit it. Use a large breaker bar or socket to ease tension off the belt. Pull the old belt off and route the new one in it's place. Let the tensioner pulley back down and you're back in business.
Beat the game and go to the ranger net and you will have the special missions
there is usually a diagram under the hood
you need a 45 or 50 torqe bit
is there a "special tool" to put torsion keys on a ranger
spring loaded tensioner does not get tightened. id belt is loose either the belt is stretched and needs replacing, or the tensioner is worn out and needs replacing
Loosen the tensioner pulley. Put the fan belt around the pulleys. Pry the tensioner pulley to the right until the belt is tight. Tighten the tensioner pulley nut.
