KEM451: So on a 2001 Ford Focus, to adjust the belt tension turn the bolt clockwise to loosen and counter-clockwise to tighten? Is that correct? How do you know when the belt is the correct tension?
captzman193: Thank you sir for taking the time to show your talents. You just saved me roughly $700-$1000 (tow, parts, labor, etc.) Got a serpentine belt for $35 followed your directions and replaced it with ease. Again, thank you very much!!
cr00kedview: Thank you for making this video, it was a valuable resource in replacing the serpentine belt on a 2002 Focus ZTS.
Erick Reholon: whats size is this belt?
mdmeadmdmead: Thanks for the video. In the process of changing the belt, idler & tensioner pulleys on my 00 wagon and wanted to see how tension was relieved. My one comment is: After having a tensioner failure years ago, I've always made it a habit of replacing the tensioner and idler pulley when replacing a belt. Yes, it costs more, is a bit more involved, but these items rarely get serviced and work as hard as the other pulley driven accessories on the engine. And when these break, they will leave you standed!
JessJack Jones: The steering on my 02 Focus got very hard as I was turning into my driveway. My husband looked at it and when he got back into the house he was holding the Serpentine belt. There was a tiny crack in it and he said that it was hanging down. I am going to have to get it towed but your tutorial is very informative. It looks like in your video that you have that car up on a hoist but we would only have a jack. Could we still be able to get at the belt with only a jack ?
Matt Smith: Any videos you'd recommend for a power steering pump removal/replacement? Can't find any good ones.
JOE FORD DIY: mike when changing my belt I have a 2003 ford focus ztw( wagon) with a 2.3 can I use ramps to get car off the ground or is it better to use a jack and stand?
