PiscesMike: Yes the belt diagram is very helpful. The job was quick and easy. I had a 14mm tensioner bolt on my wife's 2000 Focus ZTS. And a pipe is a must for leverage on that tensioner.
David Hunter: What do you do if the bolt on the tensioner is slightly stripped? Im doing a P.S. pump on my 01 Focus.
Dean Twelve: The belt diagram is a savior here..
Steve Colbert: hello IAAuto...do you happen to know what the part number is for the belt cover? That part is missing on my car. Do I really need that cover?
TurndatWrench: Thanks for posting this! It really helped me out. I did mine today! That is one rusty focus, though. Makes me feel good about mine!
patrick farrell: brilliant explanation of how to.
Jessesweet 1: Your videos always help bro much appreciated
Gregory Serrano: For the love of God man! You are oustanding, please keep doing these! Just saved me about $1K!!! Took me about 35 minutes to do this though, because I didn't get the belt to fit in all the grooves and I kept having to loosen the tensioner! But I got it! THANKS A TON MAN! God bless.
Craig S: Thank's a lot! this has really helped me.
jafet silva: great video, really help a lot. thanks man💪
Angel Sillas: Gracias, esta muy claro y facil tu video.
Satchmo McStuffins: Thanks!
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!!
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!
Jackie DIY: 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.
