Belt diagram

I am having a problem getting my drive belt reinstalled. I have a V6 3.0 Flex fuel engine. I have a Haynes manual and routed it like it said, but it is still loose. Both belts are the same size. The manual said there should be a diagram of the belt routing on the car, but I have yet to find it. I would take a hand sketched drawing at this point. Lol

Do you
have the same problem?

Thank you so much. It was actually the first diagram. The belt broke so I did not know how it went. A guy from my wife's work actually came out (he use to work for Ford) and fixed it fifteen minutes after my post here. Found out my A/C clutch is going bad and that is why the belt broke. Fun stuff. They want $550.00 to replace just the clutch. I can get the A/C compressor and clutch for $218.00 from Autozone or $188.00 from Advance. Cannot be to hard to replace. Just got to find a way to safely get rid of the R134A in the system. They will vacuum and charge it for $80.00.

Hey, I do appreciate your post. I am not really mechanically challenged. I have worked on more Fords than I would like to say. I have taken out too many transmissions and rebuilt more carburetors than I ever wanted too. Guess you could say I am a poor old-school backyard mechanic.

Thank you again

When they vacuum the system it does get rid of the r134a The other thing to think about is a junkyard compressor with a good clutch, they have just one 8mm screw holding the plate, then a snap ring holding the pulley, then you put just those on and you do not even open the system. I did this way on my Town Car in ten minutes. $50.00 at the bone yard!

Even if the ac isnt working, the pulley on the compressor is free wheeling. Is the compressor pulley froze up? You might be able to route belt from crank to power steering and then normal route. I dont know if that would work? You would have to make sure the belt didnt hit anything and tension was good. With the long run between the crank and power steering, that belt may vibrate like crazy. That much vibration may cause it to comke off the pulley.

I dont know if your engine is overhead valve or overhead cam? You could use a string or something to measure the distance around all the pulleys, then with that measurement go to your local autostore, see if they have a serpentine belt about that length. I dont know what else to tell you?
