Bought a new tensioner for the 2003, but went to install it today and the belt is now too short. WTF. Plugged in my Vin # on tasca and it says this is the correct part.


Old part # 3S40-6A228-AA
New part # 6E5Z-6A228-B

New part has # on it different from bag, it shows 6E5Q-6A228-BD

Never mind, error was on me.
Belt was riding on an outer groove of a pulley, not fully seated.

Revised part on Ford's end was not the problem, skipping breakfast and coffee was a bigger issue.
