need to change my drive belt. its looking a bit old and cracked. The problem i have is i have never done one on a ford. i know its a simple job but would like to know more before i start.

 

i have got 4 pulleys and i cant see a tensioner or any way of slacking the belt. would an o3 plate zetec have a stretchy belt and do i need special tools to remove it. i have looked online and can find a diagram with the same pulleys but nothing about how to slacken the belt.

 

sorry for being think..

by crank pulley i just mean the one that comes out the engine to drive the belt the very back and bottom one when looking and down from the front. i dont have any locking nuts was under the understanding that i didnt need one to change the drive belt.

 

sorry im good with my hands not words lol

yes as it states without a/c. if you could id personally use a jimmy bar or similar on the alternator (space dependant obv) when tightening up, as to how tight ive always done it just before it reaches half a turn. hope this helps
