Having problems with your 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis ?
I'm having problems with putting my serpentine belt on my 92 grand marquis. Why are there so many different belts for the same car. And also, its so hard to try and get the belt on and it to be really tight. Am i doing something wrong with the tensioner or is there another reason why its so loose
I have just replaced serpentine belts on my Mazda MPV 2.3 and Toyota Corolla 1.8, and I learnt a few things in the process. When you take off your old belt, measure it and buy the new one the same size 'cos these things don't stretch. For example, my Toyota measured 1816mm and I bought 1815, which fit perfectly. The Mazda was 2291 and I bought a 2285, which I struggled to fit (lesson learnt). However, because I was fitting a new tensioner, I widened the mounting holes of the tensioner so that it could move around a bit - this freed up enough millimetres to allow me to fit the shorter belt. And no, your belt should not come off unless you have threaded it incorrectly or a worn tensioner or idler is pushing it off. Hope this helps.
I'm having a similar issue with the same vehicle. We got the belt on and it fit but then it came off. Do we need to tighten something?
