Put an 18mm wrench on the lower tensioner belt and rotate CCW to loosen the tension. Remove the belt from around the alternator pulley, and slowly release the tensioner. Unwrap the belt from all the pulleys and install the new belt following the belt diagram located near the radiator support. ALWAYS make sure the grooved side of the belt is contacting the grooved pulleys, and the smooth side of the belt is contacting the smooth pulleys (Idler pulleys). Groove to Groove -- Smooth to Smooth

To change the serpentine belt on a 1988 Mercury Cougar, first take a picture of how the old belt is put on. Then, loosen the nut on the tension pulley and remove the old belt. Use the picture to route the serpentine belt in the same pattern as before. Tighten up the nut on the tension pulley.

You have to release your tensioners in order to release your serpentine belt. When you put the belt back on you have to follow the diagram on the hood of your car.

In the belt book at most autoparts stores have a diagram section for serpentine belt routing.

The Haynes Repair Manuals would have a diagram of the serpentine belt on a 94 Mercury Cougar XR7. You can find the manual at your local library, book store, or most auto parts stores.
