Question about Lincoln Cars & Trucks
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 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8IuBQpImgQ
This one (showing tensioner removal as well as belt removal) is also helpful:
