Re: 2002 taurus serpibtine belt
If all else fails, do it from under the car. I had to do it this way on an older truck of mine. I can't recall a problem replacing the belt on my '99 Taurus. I took a ratchet, pulled in the one pulley on the side and removed the belt. Just be careful that once you remove the belt, if you can manage from the top of the engine, that the ratchet will want to force itself back farther than where you had originally latched onto the pulley.
