How do you Change, Replace, or Install Broken 1998-2002 Lincoln Town Car 4.6L Serpentine Belt Tensioner Replacement

Fits Years: 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002


Tools required:

  • 3/8 ratchet handle

  • 10mm socket/ratchet

  • 8mm wrench


Step 1: Using the 8mm wrench, disconnect the vehicle's negative battery cable.

Step 2: Locate the belt routing diagram posted either under the hood or in the owner's manual.

Step 3: Insert the 3/8 square ratchet handle into the belt tensioner. Turn the tensioner CLOCKWISE to release the tension on the belt. Remove the serpentine belt from the vehicle, and slowly release the tensioner.

Step 4: Loosen and remove the 10mm mounting bolt (1) that secures the belt tensioner to the assembly. You can now remove the tensioner.

Step 5: Mount the new tensioner to the assembly by tightening the 10mm mounting bolt (1).


Use the guiding tab on the tensioner to ensure proper positioning.

Step 6: Route the serpentine belt per the diagram we found in Step 2. Once the belt is properly positioned, use the 3/8 ratchet handle to turn the tensioner COUNTER CLOCKWISE, tightening the belt into place.

NOTE: The belt should be taut, but not stretched or overly tight!

Step 7: Using the 8mm wrench, reconnect the vehicle's battery cable.
