More importantly, why did it break? Before you install one, spin each pulley and feel for binding or no movement. Also check for serpentine belt tensioner being cocked or loose. Eye up the pullies to make sure something did not come out of alignment. IF you find something please post it. Oh yeah, there should be a diagram on a sticker somewhere in the engine compartment.

I won a 1996 Lincoln Continental and am replacing the belt and water pump, gotta love Ford, guess they didnt think that routing sticker for the belt was necessary. There isn't one anywhere under the hood.

Try looking up, I have a 96 Lincoln Continental and it is on the hood itself by the latch.

The AC compressor was locked on my Sonata 2004 - V6-2.7. The original serpentine belt broke. I bypassed it with a Duralast 6PK1700 (OLD NO. 670K6). The autotensioner has to be removed to install the belt.
