How do you remove the water-pump drive belt from a 1998 Mercury Mystique with a 2.5L engine? Thanks.
You would have to remove the engine cover first.
Raise the vehicle and support with jack stands and wheel chocks.
Use a breaker bar installed in the 3/8 inch square hole in the drive belt tensioner to rotate the drive belt.
Rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise by hand.
Lift the drive belt over the pulley flanges and remove.
Reverse the procedure to install.
If you need more information get back to us when you can we will be glad to help.
Thanks a lot for the info TH2. This is what I needed.
