Unless a spring or damping band within the tensioner assembly breaks or some other mechanical part of the tensioner fails, there is no need to check the tensioner for correct tension.

Inspection



Specific to:

Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.

Mercury Sable 2008-2009
  1. With the vehicle in NEUTRAL, position it on a hoist.
  2. Working from the top of the vehicle, using a suitable belt tensioner release tool, rotate the accessory drive belt tensioner counterclockwise and remove the accessory drive belt.

  4. Working from under the vehicle, remove the accessory drive belt.
