You need an actual serpentine belt diagram for a Ford Taurus the year is a 1997?
Find a 1997 Taurus for sale, belonging to a friend or parked next to you in a parking lot. Nicely ask the owner of the car if you can look under their hood for the diagram. Open hood, look up and wallah, a diagram! Draw or take a picture.
ok so you don't have aneighbor or a friend, does anyone out there have an actual diagram that they can email me?
I HAVE FOUND THAT MANY OF THE DIAGRAMS GIVEN TO YOU BY AUTO PARTS DEALERS ARE ***WRONG***. I CALLED THE PARTS DEPT. OF A LOCAL FORD DEALERSHIP AND WAS ABLE TO GET THE GUY TO E-MAIL ME A COPY OF THE **CORRECT** DIAGRAM AND IT WORKED.... SO GIVE THEM A CALL.

How do I find the Serpentine Belt Routing Diagram for 1997-2005 Chevy Malibu V6 3.1L with air conditioning?
The serpentine belt can be replaced by finding the belt tension pulley. This pulley has a bolt in the center and when you turn it the belt will loosen and you can take it off the pulleys. Look for a diagram sticker under the hood or make your own so you remember how the new belt wraps around the pulleys.
