I am trying to save myself some money and I want to change the serpentine belt on my 1998 ford contour 2 L manual transmission....any ideas out there I would really appreciate any advice.
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.
Worn or incorrect belt. Defective, glazed idler or pulleys.
