    Hi, Im having trouble tracking down exactly what is going on. When I turn on the A/C I get just air blowing out that is not cold. I assume I need to recharge the freon. So I bought the usual stuff from Autozone and Popped my hood. I noticed what I think is my "Tensioner " seems to try to engage...

    For about 2 weeks now my 2006 GT has been squeaking on startup and durring acceleration. Now I know it could be the tensioner but the sound seems really prominent towards the right, near one of the idler pulleys with teeth because it does have some slight wiggle. Now if so, can i just buy...

    My G/F has a 1994 and the belt fell off, it had a bad idle wheel. Anyway, I replaced the wheel, the new one is steel and a bit bigger, old was plastic, However I can't seem to get the tensioner loose. I read on this forum that it takes a #55 Torx, so I bought one, and reefed on it (getting...

    The bearing on the belt tensioner squeaks LOUDLY for a good 15 minutes until the engine is warmed up at which point it completely quiets down as if there was never a squak. I have posted a video with the sound and showing the how much movement there is on the belt tensioner. It might also be the...

    MY buddy has a 1999 gt procharged 301. We started having problems right when we got it because it tore about 4 belts and after becoming pretty profiecient at replacing them we found the problem. The pulley on the tensioner seemed a bit too far towards the front of the car and the belt was riding...

    I'm having an issue with the drive belt in my 2002 4.6L Mustang GT. I recently replaced my alternator, and am having issues putting the tensioner back on. Is there something I'm completely missing as to how to loosen the thing? Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi, I'm new to the forum, and I hope you guys don't laugh at my question because it seems that everyone is so sophisticated here. I have a 2001 Mustang V6 3.8L, and I'm trying to replace the serpentine fan belt. Could you please tell me if some special tools are required, if there is a belt...

    :headscratch: Okay, I got the belt off of the engine just fine. I released the tension in the tensioner pulley, the old belt slid off, no problem. Now, here's my issue, using the diagram, I route the belt as I see it, however, I can only get the belt to clear all but ONE of anything. According...
