If you changed the serpentine belt on a 1996 Mercury Sable and now it is being shredded is the problem with the routing of the belt or is the fly wheel out of line and how do you fix it?

Maybe the belt tension is too tight. This very same thing happen to me on a 92 Jeep Cherokee.

Is the belt the right belt ? Length , width and design Check your routing If you did not move any components ( fly wheel ???? ) then look at the belt. looks like you got to change the belt again anyway get a belt from a dealership

Only as needed. The serpentine belts hold up well unless there is a problem with the belt tensioner or any of the driven accessories.

Mercury works very well in thermometers. The problem is when the thermometer breaks: mercury is quite toxic.

Remove the serpentine belt and check the belt and pulleys for damage. While the belt is off, turn the alternator by hand listening for the noise.
