How do you change a serpentine belt on a Mercury Sable - Ford Taurus?
(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. Answer Put 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.

Asked in Ford Ranger
How do you replace idler pulley 1996 ranger 3.0?
The bolt on the idler pull loosens the normal direction, lefty loosey on the ford ranger 3.0 engine. If you look lower, you'll notice the tension pulley. You can tell it's the tension pulley by the pivoter arm that it's bolted to. Take the proper size wrench or socket, and turn clockwise as if you were to tighten it. It takes a little bit of force, but the whole arm assembly should turn down taking tension off the belt. You can then slide the serpentine off of the idler pulley and remove the pulley.

Asked in Serpentine Belts, Ford Contour
How do you tighten a serpentine belt for a 1998 Ford Contour?
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.

How do you release the tension on the pulley of the alternator on a Ford Focus?
How do you replace the alternator belt on a 1997 Ford Escort?
I found the instructions in a Chiltons #26242 book on Ford Escort/Tracer. I found it easier to remove the alternator as there is a idler pulley hidden beneath it that is a real bugger to get the belt around. Once I solved this problem everything else was easy. The tension pulley that Ford installed really helped as you don't have to adjust the belt.
