Looking under the hood standing over the fan look down and to the right of the fan. The tensioner is between the alternator pulley and the crank shaft pulley. There will be a 3/8 inch square hole in the tensioner. This square hole is for a 3/8 inch drive socket or pull handle to release the tension off the serpentine belt Looking under the hood standing over the fan look down and to the right of the fan.

How do you change the Serpentine Belt on a 1997 Ford Ranger?

Serpentine belt replacement: (1)rotate the tensioner counterclockwise (2.3, 2.5 and 4.0 engines) or clockwise (3.0 engine) to lift it off the belt. Slip the belt off the pulleys. (2)Hold the tensioner in the released position. Install a new belt and make sure it is routed correctly. Be sure the ribs of the new belt engage the pulley ribs correctly. Release the tensioner. Manual adjustment is not required, it is done automatically by the tensioner. - Haynes Repair Manual Ford Ranger 1993 - 2005.
