Serpentine belt Ford raptor help

Recommended Posts


My serpentine belt blew on my 575 Ford raptor today.  Is it hard to replace?  Not sure when my dealer can get to it

I have never seen a serpentine belt that was hard to change.  Get it routed around the stationary pulleys, then use a wrench to load the belt onto the spring idler pulley.  Go back and inspect the whole thing to make sure the belt is in the grooves correctly on every pulley.

IT is somewhat harder to do on a boat because it is hard to get to.


There is a special tool that really helped.  Sold at the standard auto parts store

Thanks.  Went and looked at it this morning.  Also looks like the idler pulley failed.  But if I can get the part at my dealer or Napa it looks very doable
