What are the drive belt procedures on a Ford Explorer XLS?
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.
