just above the ac clutch
Just above the A/C pulley. The a/c pulley is a large ribbed pulley that has 3 bolts and a triangular plate on it. The tensioner is small and smooth and is just above the a/c pulley. more info and a pic here. http://www.rldassociates.com/zx2/howto/belt.htm

Replace the tensioner pulley
I found one for my 1999 ZX2 at the dealership. Ran about $50. dealership
you have to replace it
Put a 3/8 inch ratchet in the end of the belt tensioner. It is an arm with a pulley on the end of it which contacts the back side of the belt. Pull the ratchet toward you to release the pressure on the belt. Then take it off the pulleys.
where is th flasher relay on a 1999 ford escort zx2
1. Loosen the tensioner with a 3/8 inch ratchet in the hole and pull back. 2. Take the belt off the tensioner. 3. Take the side bolt going into the head off. 4. Take the tensioner off.
Because its a ford. lol
the correct timing position can be done by locating top dead center (TDC) on cylinder number 1 and by aligning the timing slots found on the end of the cams opposite the cam gears then properly adjusting the tensioner pulley
