View Full Version : Ranger belt

Can anyone tell me how to replace a 1999 ford ranger serpentine belt (http://www.drivewire.com/vehicle/ford-ranger/serpentine-belt/)? I would like to try doing it alone, but if all else fails, might as well go to a dealership.

Always broke

Don't go to a dealership save your money go to any autoshop it's pretty easy with the right tools :)

take a moment and map out the pullys and belt rout on a piece of paper.
l believe there is a spring loaded tentioner that gets unloaded with a socket and long handle. or long box end wrench.
then the belt should slide off there or at the water pump pully behind the fan.

to put the new one on
rout the belt back on untill you get to the water pump pully or tentioner. which ever came off first.
then just make sure everything is in line and for proper tention

and thats it.
