you can start by buying from any automotive parts store an user/repair manual for about $20. Haynes is a good brand manual, and it has almost everything you need for your contour. I replaced my belts, and you need to take everything off the engine, the air intake, the engine mount on the top passenger, the belt cover, the main surpintine belt, the pulleys, the alternator, its a mess of a job, remember how you took it all off, so you can put it all back on, and mark on the cranshaft where you took the belt off, so you can put the new one in the same location, this is not an easy do it yourself job, if its not something you have done before. I spent the better part of my Saturday taking the car apart. Buy the repair manual, it will have pictures, and step by step instructions, better than I can describe on here. Good luck, and have fun.
