I am trying to save myself some money and I want to change the serpentine belt on my 1998 Ford Contour 2 L manual transmission....any ideas out there I would really appreciate any advice.
Away from the serpentine belt
Wats your favorite thing to do
When a serpentine belt is loose it means either the belt has stretched and needs replacing, or the idler tensioner is defective and needs replacing, or both.
if it is a 4 cyl. the adj. is located on the left side (fire wall side of the motor) just below the alternater.
Please email me back @ firstname.lastname@example.org
It is driven off the serpentine belt
Your Explorer has a serpentine belt tensioner which keeps the proper tension on the serpentine belt unless the tensioner has failed.
thay adjust themself
the belt tensioner does it by itself.short answer no
Buy a Chevy!!!! That was a big help. Most but not all serpentine belt systems have a spring loaded tension pulley that just holds constant tension on the belt. If there is a tension pulley, it will be the one pulley that is not attached to anything like the alternator or AC. After that, the alternator is the most likely to be the one that adjusts.

It has a timing belt. I just had mine changed.

They are spring loaded and self adjusting. If it isn't adjusting itself, it's probably bad.

The correct belt tension will be maintained by the belt tensioner. The tension is not adjustable on this car.
