How do you change the serpentine belt on a 1996 Continental?

This is not a job for a novice. If you don't have to do it yourself, take it to a mechanic! To access the parts the inner fender skirt needs to be removed. It is a good idea to replace the TENSIONER PULLY AND THE IDLER PULLEY as long as you are going to do so much to replace the belt. Some have reported that either or both of these parts 'went out' shortly after replacing the belt. If that happens you have to redo this all over again. The parts don't cost that much so it is wise to do it all at once.Basically it goes like this; * Remove the Belt * Remove the Tensioner * Remove the Idler Pulley * Reverse process for installation Belt RemovalWARNING: Do not allow drive belt tensioner to snap back, as damage to drive belt tensioner or personal injury could result.1. Remove the screws and position the power steering fluid reservoir out of the way. 2. Remove the nut and the bolts and position the degas bottle out of the way. 3. Lift or rotate the automatic drive belt tensioner away from the drive belt. 4. Remove the drive belt. (I had to cut my belt to remove it at this point. It is virtually impossible to get it around the tensioner without removing the tensioner.)Tensioner Removal 1. Remove the bolt.2. Remove the pushpins and position the inner RH fender wall out of the way.3. Remove the drive belt tensioner.Belt Idler Pulley Removal1. Remove the belt; refer to Belt Removal.2. Remove the bolt.3. Remove the belt idler pulley.Installation is just a matter of reversing the steps for removal.Note: Make sure drive belt is properly installed on each pulley. Follow the removal procedure in reverse order.FOR DRAWINGS OF THE PROCESS GO TO:http://www.automotiveforums.com/f282.html. Look for question on Belt for 4.7L Engine.


How do you replace a tension pulley assembly on a 89 Chevy Celebrity?

How to replace the tensioner assembly depends on which engine your car has. If it is the 2.5L 4cylinder engine: 1. The tensioner assembly covers a coolant opening in the block, so you need to drain the coolant to point lower than the bottom of the tensioner assembly. 2. Release the tension on the serpentine belt and move the belt out of the way. 3. The tensioner assembly also is the mounting point for the power steering pump. So to change the tensioner assembly first remove the power steering pump. Be careful to avoid power steering fluid leakage. 4. With the power steering pump off, the tensioner assembly is held onto the block with three screws, remove them. 5. At this point the tensioner assembly should simply pull off. It may be stuck to the block with rtv sealant. Install the new tensioner: 1. Clean the old sealant off of the block. Be sure to have an adequate bead of rtv on the block or the tensioner to seal against coolant leaks. The last time I replaced one of these there was no mounting gasket, it was all done with just rtv sealant. 2. Mount the new tensioner and tighten the bolts. 3. Reattach the power steering pump. Check the fluid level, refill if necessary. 4. Reinstall the serpentine belt. 5. Top off coolant as necessary, check for leaks. If your car has the 2.8L V6: 1. Release the tension and remove the serpentine belt. 2. The tensioner assembly is held on by one bolt in the middle of the fixed end. Remove the bolt. 3. Install the new tensioner assembly. be sure it is in the correct rotation. Tighten the bolt. 4. Put the serpentine belt back on. You are done.

This is needed to remove the lower alternator bolt. (both 15mm) 3) remove the two bolts holding the alternator in place and move the alternator to the passenger side(no need to disconnect wires). 4) At this point you can see the nut on the back of the tensioner.
