If you are replacing the belt you need to replace the tension-er as well. This is for a 2.5L engine that is not a Hybrid if yours is a Hybrid then this is wrong as well. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what happens.

Just ran the VIN, claims it is a 2.5 hybrid. Looks like the same belt routing though.

The serpentine belt snapped off, so I replaced it and a week later snapped off again. My guess is the top one won't stop spinning which keeps causing the belt to keep coming off and the smooth one below sounds squeaky when it spins so that also needs replacing. Can someone please guide me? I know what I'm doing I just need some guidance/reassuring.

What does the belt look like when it fails? Was it shredded or did it look melted? Can you get a picture of the failed belt where it broke?

The most likely cause of the belt breaking over and over is a misaligned pulley causing the belt to wear or a pulley is seized or binding causing the belt to overheat and break.

Also, the pulley on the top which appears to be the tensioner is shiny. This means the belt is being dragged over it. If you look at the other pulleys they have a black tint to them and the top one does not. However, the smooth one should look shiny. Only the ones with the rips on it should be like this. It may just be the angle but I suspect this may be part of the issue.

Lastly any pulley that squeaks is the bearing that is failing so it should be replaced. Let me know which one is making the noise and we can figure out next steps. Thanks

So I went and got a new tensioner and was told that the shiny one is the water pump and I'm trying to remove it but it's so corroded it looks like its literally one entire piece rather than the little pump itself. Any tips on how to remove it? I've been trying everything.

If you removed the bolts shown in the process then most likely it is the o ring that is holding it in place. More then likely it got hot and "melted" the o ring which is keeping it in place. You can try prying gently and evenly around the three bolt locations to try and walk it out. Once the o ring breaks loose it should just pull out.

Let me know if you have questions about this. Thanks

Well after an entire day of trying to remove it, it finally came out it was not easy. I put the new one in but wasn't sure about the next step would I be flushing the coolant through or "burping" the system. I've never done any before and I lost reading a bunch of different articles online.

Okay. Is it slipping off the water pump pulley? If this is the case, we need to reinstall the belt and check the alignment of the pulleys. Basically if you look across all the faces of the pulleys they should be perfectly aligned. If one is off it will cause the belt to walk off the pulleys.

I would suggest installing the belt (diagram attached) and then use a socket on the crank pulley bolt and turn the motor over by hand and see what happens to the belt. You should be able to watch where it is walking off the pulleys to find the issue.

The Serpentine belt busted in our 2010 Ford Escape XLT. My husband would like to fix it himself, but we cannot locate a diagram for a 2010 Ford Escape S belt. Also, the air compressor stopped kicking on and off about 4 weeks before this happened. Could they be related? There's absolutely no change in the engine when you try to kick the air on - like it's not getting power to it? Fix suggestions for a mediocre novice mechanic?

Hello, I'm Danny
Here is the serpentine belt diagram you requested. There would be no reason the air conditioning compressor not working would be related. Here is a tutorial showing how to replace a serpentine belt.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/replace-serpentine-belt

As far as the air conditioning there is a cut-off feature that happens when the system drops to low with refrigerant. This happens to keep the compressor from cycling to prevent damage from happening with a low level of refrigerant. Here are a few tutorials to help you get started with diagnosing and filling refrigerant to your ac system.

I've attached the picture below of the serpentine belt diagram below. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.

My Serpentine belt broke due to failed ac compressor. I would like to bypass ac compressor. I found an ac compressor bypass pulley for a 2001-2003 Escape at am-autoparts. Here's my question:

Are the drive belt systems the same in 2003 and 2004?

Once the compressor was taken out it was made clear the clutch was shot and the bearings completely wasted, but It appears as though the compressor is still compressing.
