If it's anything like the 7.3 you put the 1/2" drive ratchet in the tensioner and pull it... and then remove the belt.

I see you're from pasadena - is that Maryland???

the belt isnt easy but i think i can tell you how to do it , one thing to know is there is a clip down on the tensioner that when the tensioner is pulled you can push the clip in and the tensioner will stay in place , if you have two people have some reach over the passenger side fender and pull hard n the belt, that will pull the tensioner up by pulling on the belt, the other person can push the clip in , with the tension off the belt you will be able to wiggle the new belt in place , make sure its in all the grooves and then pull the new belt again which will put pressure back on the tensioner and releasing the tensioner clip and then belt is installed , i may be able to get some pics tomorrow, a belt can be replaced in about 15 minutes that way

SCUFFY828,

I have an 03 Excursion with the 6.0 psd. My mechanic said my belt needed to be replaced and the swap would take up to 3 hours. Will your method work for my truck? I appreciate your input.
Thanks

belt

I was curious if anyone has step by step instructions on how to replace the belt on my 03 ex with the 6.0psd? I also think that my tensioner is on its way out and needs to be replaced. I am new to this site and truck so would appreciate help from some of you Pro's. Thanks

It doesn't take 3 hours to replace a belt. Scuffy is a VERY experienced 6.0 tech. Most people can do one in about an hour even with limited experience. The fan shroud doesn't come out. If you follow the belt routing on the underhood diagram you can see how it goes. It is a bit of a *****, but readily dooable.

I looked at the diagram under the hood and it has the belt going around my fan with the grooved side towards the fan. Once the tensioner is replaced do you feed the belt around the fan? Does every 6.0 belt go around the fan? My tensioner is covered under warranty so I'm gonna let the warranty replace that and any other pulleys that are ****** up. I do appreciate the insight everyone has given me. Does anyone have any pictures of replacing the belt?
Thanks
