2000 Focus Power steering pump??

My son has a 2000 FF and the power steering pump is making the worst of rackets. I wet to look at it and I think it is terminal. I don't see how to get the belt off and on a new one. I think I see the idler pulley but the bolt is right close to the frame rail. The only thing I can get on it is a box end wrench. I can't get a socket and ratchet on it. I can't get enough torque on it with the little wrench [1/2"] to get it out of the way to deal with the belt. I am pretty sure I can get the old one off but getting the belt on a new one after the idler pulley fully goes to a resting position may be a different story.

Told my son maybe I was missing something and I would get on here and ask.

What am I missing?

You gotta love todays engineering...

please HELP!

You'll wanna use the tensioner to get the belt off.

The tensioner is located right below the alternator on the bottom side of the engine . It the closest pully to the firewall.

The tensioner takes a 15mm wrench and to loosen it you have to rotate it towards the firewall.

I'll see if I can dig up a picture to help you out. be right back

I sure appreciate the help.

I am pretty sure he said his was a 2000. On his the alternator is on the front of the motor under the p steering pump and above the A/C compressor. ..

Looking at the end motor from the passenger side, the idler is to the lower left of the p steering pump and between the harmonic balancer and the p steering pump.

The idler is right in front of the frame member such that I can't get anything with any length on it for leverage. ie. socket and breaker bar or ratchet. When I put a box end 1/2" wrench on it [which is the only thing you can use due to the lack of distance between the frame and the face of th bolt holding the idler on.] I can't get the leverage needed to move the idler. I can get the darn thing off I think. the getting th belt back on the p s pump pulley is the problem.

If I jacked the passenger side of the motor up [which I do not have the means] I think I could get it. Just joking there. I sure do not want to have to go t such extremes and like I said I do not have the tools or the place to get into all that.

I just keep hoping someone smarter than me will point out what I am missing.....?

Before we get any further, what engine does he have? Is it the 16v Zetec Engine, or the SPI (Split Port) engine?

Gah, ok. I can't be much help then, I really don't know much about that one, never really messed with one. Now if it were a Zetec or Duratec....

Hopefully someone will chime in.

I'll see if I can bring this to the attention of one of the SPI guys.

Using a 3/8 inch square drive breaker bar in the hole provided, rotate the tensioner clockwise
