Is that a typo? The first MKX model was a 2007. It's similar to the Ford Edge. I didn't find any diagrams online, but there are several YouTube videos showing the belt removal process.

1. Remove right front wheel.
2. Remove plastic fender liner. Don't forget the fastener under the frame behind the fender.
3. The belt tensioner has a 3/8" square hole in a tab. Insert a ratchet or breaker bar in this hole and pull it clockwise (facing the engine from the passenger side) while your helper pulls the belt off from underneath the car at the wheel well. The belt runs around the crank pulley, the air conditioner compressor and alternator pulleys (grooved pulleys are on the inside of the belt), and the tensioner pulley pushes against the outside of the belt at the top between the alternator and the crank pulley (flat-faced pulleys are on the outside of the belt).
4. The power steering belt goes between the crank pulley and the power steering pump. It uses the section of the crank pulley closer to the engine block. You could loosen the power steering pump bolts to release the tension, but those are a super pain to get at. There is a special belt stretching tool made for this job. You can buy it at RockAuto for $6.41 - $7.17; it's listed along with the belts under "Belt Drive" for your model.

The best YouTube video on this that I've found is

This one (showing tensioner removal as well as belt removal) is also helpful:

Is there a 2008 Lincoln MKX power seat el. schematic available. I am putting these seats into a street rod and need the wiring diagrams

The best solution I have for you is to try to buy the Chilton Manual for the 2008 Lincoln MKX.

I can't copy and paste wiring schematics off of my online resource to for some reason.

Sorry, about that.

2008 Lincoln MKX currently will not start just constantly turns over and lights constanly flicker. Have tried chargign the batter and then it shows to be charged but does not start though.

The battery is considered charged when the voltage between ( ) and (-) terminal is at least 12.6 Volts.
Check first the battery voltage with a multimeter, and make sure that both ( ) and (-) terminals are tight.
