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.

where is the tensioner for the serpentine belt on a 2004 ford ranger
Loosen the tensioner pulley. Put the fan belt around the pulleys. Pry the tensioner pulley to the right until the belt is tight. Tighten the tensioner pulley nut.
he tensioner keeps the right amount of tension on the belt. If it is lose, the tensioner needs replaced.
Pry it with a breaker bar

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.
Release the pressure on the belt tensioner and belt should slide off pulleys
show me a picture and diagram of 1997 ford ranger timing belt replacement
There is no adjustment, they use a belt tensioner to keep it tight. If it is loose it need to be replaced.
spring loaded tensioner does not get tightened. id belt is loose either the belt is stretched and needs replacing, or the tensioner is worn out and needs replacing
To re-install a belt tensioner for a 1987 Ford Taurus, tighten the bolt when the tensioner pulley is holding the serpentine belt tight. The belt tensioner sits in a slot and can be adjusted to hold the belt tight.
there are two tensioners, the serpentine tensioner and the timing belt tensioner. the timing belt tensioner is behind the timing belt cover ;)
1997 Ranger 4.0L engines have a timing chain.
No , the 2.3 liter 4 cylinder in a 1997 Ford Ranger is NOT an interference engine ( according to the Gates website )
on my 1995 4.0 L OHV it is located below the alternator
is there a recall on the timing belt on a 1999 ford ranger?
Which ranger do you have because normally you take the air housing off then the serpentine belt then the mounting bolts on the alternator then remove the electric connection. If your trying to locate the alternator it's on the left side of the engine above the tensioner
Only the 4 cylinders have a belt. The belt should be replaced at 60,000 miles.
It is only held on with one bolt and keyed to go a certain way. Take the belt off, unbolt it, bolt on the new one, put the belt back on.
Where is the belt tensioner on a ford 2003 f350 6l diesel? i need to loosen so that i can replace the alternater
I just changed mine on a 98 3.0 ranger. Mine was located on the same bracked as the air conditioner and the power steering pump. It is a smooth pully touches the smooth side of the belt and not the lines side of the belt.
There should be an engine belt diagram near the latch that keeps your hood closed.
Loosen the tensioner bolt, let the spring loaded tensioner contact the belt. Then tight the tensioner bolt.
From Haynes Repair Manual for Ford Ranger Pickups 1993 - 2005: "The belt's pathway is illustrated on a decal on the radiator support. Tension is set by an automatic tensioner and manual adjustment is not required. Rotate the tensioner clockwise or counter-clockwise (2.3, 2.5 and 4.0 are counter clockwise, 3.0 is clockwise) to loosen the tension and hold the tensioner in the released position. Install the belt and make sure it is routed correctly. Release the tensioner". Good luck.
