Asked by rep Oct 04, at There should be a sticker showing the belt routing diagram and location of the tensioner on either the fan shroud, radiator core support, or fender well area of the engine compartment. If there is not, you will need to contact a mechanic or check out a Haynes manual for the type and location of tensioner used on this particular engine. Jarett answered 11 years ago. You must jack up the front passenger side of the car, remove the wheel, and the plastic shroud from inside the wheel well. Then using a prybar and socket you can get to the tensioner from underneith.
How to change belt tensioner pulley on 98 ford escort zx2
The belt drives the engine accessories using kinetic energy from the crankshaft pulley and transferring that energy to the accessories. As time goes on, the belt begins to crack and fray. Signs of imminent belt failure include edge fraying, splits or cracks on either side and loss of ribs. Start the Escort, turn the steering wheel as far to the right as it will go and then shut the car off. Raise the hood and set the prop rod into the hood to keep the hood from falling down.
Well you know that you should have the long flat tool with the 13mm socket to relieve tension on the pulley to get the belt off. Access tensioner from underneath car - on a lift would be best. You HAVE to take the lower power steering fitting off in order to remove the lower tensioner bolt. Change it, torque it down, re-install the belt and you are good to go.
