How to replace the Drive Belt

3 Answers


cvoci, I couldn't find instructions for you on the web so I will refer you to your local library where you should be able to find a Chilton's manual for your T-Bird. If not you can check out your nearest book store. Failing all of that there are several manuals on sale on e-bay. Here's a link to the search I just ran. The Chilton's will help you get through the job. Hope that helps. Good luck.


there should be a release on the back of it. probably a bolt you can turn a bit with a ratchet to loosen the belt. If not there is another type of release that I am not sure of.


I will take pictures tomorrow if I can to show you.
