Best Answer

If you are referring to the accessory drive belt located on the front of the engine the general procedure is to relieve tension on the belt by first finding the belt tensioner, then using the appropriate tool to push it in towards the (usually) center of the engine and then taking the belt off best way you can. It isn't really hard to do this. Reinstallation is a little harder. Follow the diagram which will be located somewhere under the hood, and you can't go wrong. Of course you will also have to push the tensioner aside to put the new belt on.

How can you change the timing belt on 1994 Ford Explorer?

I am afraid that is impossible, since an Explorer doesn't have a timing belt. It uses an internal timing chain, which you don't service, unless it breaks or is rattling. Are you talking about the accessory drive(fan) belt? If so, there is a spring loaded tensioner that you use a socket wrech to pivot out of the way and remove tension from the belt and change the belt.
