How to Replace the Serpentine Belt in a 98 Ford Escort Zx2 | It Still Runs
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. It's best if you have someone to help you to pull the belt off as the other one releases the tensioner, and same for putting it back on.

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.
Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed. Raise and support the vehicle. Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise and remove the drive belt. Refer to the Component Locations for the drive belt routing.
