To re-install a belt tensioner for a 1987 Ford Taurus, tighten the bolt when the tensioner pulley is holding the serpentine belt tight. The belt tensioner sits in a slot and can be adjusted to hold the belt tight.
You have to install a new belt tensioner.
Automatic tensioner- no adjustment required, or provided. If the tensioner is out of limits, replace the tensioner.
Pull it out and fit a new one
It uses a spring loaded belt tensioner. The tensioner is autmatically set. IF there is not enough tension, then replace the tensioner. The belt may be stretched and need replacment however.
Something is out of line. Check alternator, a/c pump, idler and tensioner. I've had 3 Taurus and never a single broken belt.
As viewing the motor from the front of the car, the belt tensioner is located on the left side of the engine. On what is essentially the front of the motor, the belt tensioner is located just below the idler pulley.
The tensioner has a spring in it that provides the correct tension for the belt. If it is too loose, replace the tensioner.
# Install belt on to all pulleys except belt tensioner # Using the extension insert it into the belt tensioner and push away from you.Carefully install the ribbed belt on the tensioner and slowly allow the extension to move toward you as tension is placed on the belt # Remove extension from belt tensioner and inspect the belt to be sure it is seated correctly on all the pulleys if not remove belt and reinstall

there are two tensioners, the serpentine tensioner and the timing belt tensioner. the timing belt tensioner is behind the timing belt cover ;)
where is the tensioner for the serpentine belt on a 2004 ford ranger

See "Related Questions" below for more about Taurus serpentine belts - both routing diagram sources and ideas on installing them. get the belt routed correctly, leaving a loop near the tensioner pulley. using a 15mm wrench on the tensioner bolt, move tensioner toward front of car (spring-loaded) slip smooth side of the belt over tensioner, release pressure on tensioner slowly. verify belt is fully seated before starting engine.
By replacing the belt tensioner, this is a serpentine belt systems there is no adjusting the alternator bolt tighten the drive belts, if the belts are loose you must replace the belt tensioner and the belt to retain optimum performance from you Charging sytem as well as you other equipment being driven by the belt system.
First, remove the coolant tank, then the belt. Unscrew the one bolt holding the tensioner in place. Installation is the reverse...
the best way is use a breaker bar & cheater pipe & loosen tensioner remove belt be careful spring loaded go the same way to reinstall
Something is out of line, or you are using a warped belt. Take off and check the idler and also the tensioner pulley. They are most likely to cause belt problems.
The 1999 Ford Taurus does not have a timing belt. It has a chain that requires no maintenance.
(This answer Covers the Ford Motor Company Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable with the 3.0L OHV "Vulcan" Engine and the 3.0L DOHC "Duratec" engines.)Installation notes:Replace the belt by fitting it around the pulleys and lastly loosening the tension with the tensioner/idler pulley to allow the belt to fit over the last pulley. Attach a 15mm socket or wrench to the bolt in the middle of the tensioner pulley.On all 3.0L (OHV) engines, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.On 3.0L (DOHC) engines, rotate the tensioner counter-clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys.Replace the belt by fitting it around the pulleys and lastly loosening the tension with the tensioner/idler pulley to allow the belt to fit over the last pulley.AnswerPut a wrench on the (spring loaded) tensioner/ider pulley and take out the tension. You can then remove the belt. Replace the belt by fitting it around the pulleys and lastly loosening the tension with the tensioner/idler pulley to allow the belt to fit over the last pulley.
The opposite way you took it off
Where is the belt tensioner on a ford 2003 f350 6l diesel? i need to loosen so that i can replace the alternater
right near the water pump passenger side.one big bolt removes it.remove serp bwlt 1st with belt removing tool or breaker bar.
You don't. The belt tensioner is spring loaded. If you look very very closely at the tensioner, there are wear-indicator marks that can confirm the belt has stretched beyond its useful life. See "Related Questions" below for more
It cost me $183 at a private garage in Toronto, Ontario Canada (May 2012).
Loosen the tensioner bolt, let the spring loaded tensioner contact the belt. Then tight the tensioner bolt.
