I've posted here on the belt issues and the belt that I found that works for me. Wider will probably help but longer is the problem I faced. The stock belt on my XR2 would not reach snug when the belt bolt slot was run all out of slot, so in my experience, longer will not work.

First post! Woohoo.  :P I recently bought my Capri for cheap, knowing it had some gremlins to trace down and sort out. I've been looking for an interior wiring diagram for a little while now with no luck. If anyone can help, I'd be grateful. I had some problems with my headlight switch, so I took it apart, cleaned up the contacts, and got the tail lights and markers working again. However, the instrument panel and heater controls still fail to illuminate.

I have a spare no slip belt from Russ, I could give it to you for 20$ + shipping.

So I've had a squealing alternator belt for awhile now and she finally let go. I've researched this issue for hours and have come to the conclusion that it's because the alternate pulley is too wide. I found someone on another forum say that the Gates XL9360 belt is a direct fit to our cars. So I went to the parts store and compared it with a Dayco belt I bought. The Gates is wider but it's also a tad longer. Does anyone else have experience with the Gates belt? Ithe would be awsome if this fixes the issue permanently. Maybe I'm overthinking this but my Capri is my everyday driver so I have to fix it right. Ive driven my Capri for about 7 monthes now with the belt starting to squeel about a month ago or so. It's worth noting that the belt that broke did look old and dry rotted with cracks. I seen there is a "no squeal" belt roo sport sells but unfortunately his ebay store is not up right now and I have a hard time justifying paying $45 for a belt! I also seen Capriparts have a belt for $40 and they claim IT is the correct and only belt that will permanently fix the problem...really hoping to get your guys expert advice on this one! please help!

Kitt, no guarantee that these would fit, but any similar style link that is at least as long should be able to be cut down to the exact length. Maybe, I'll stick my head under mine and measure the length later this evening...

...or you could use the search function in the suitable category....Non-Capri usable parts...

Kitt...also do a search on this forum for shifter bushings and you will find a thread that gives you a NAPA part number for rubber bushings as well.

Kitt....join the Facebook group 1991-1994 Mercury Capri Owners group.   There is a recent thread with many options for shifter bushings.

...yep, Pappy I already have done that..I have a 93 Parts Car that I was going to transfer  the wiring harness from to the 94 but obviously they decided to change the set up in 1994...The 1994 has much less wiring in the harness and the routing of the harness(s)
 are different..

My experience with new distributors is not a good one..5th one wasn't a charm either, ended up going to autozone for a new igniter (with warranty) and for more than a year now No issues . I have suggested to another member to check wiring behind the radiator tank on drivers side front fender, especially the blue one and it worked for them. It was suggested to me a couple years back so I pass it on..didn't help my issue at the time but may have saved a headache later. That whole cluster behind there can get really nasty, check them all. Keep us posted !!
