There is a tension pully located under the alternator. It has a bolt head in the middle of it. Place a long box end wrench on it and pull it towards you. The tensioner will move forward. first put the belt on the pullies properly. (see diagram placed at left side of the hood release). Then leave the belt off the pully that is located just under the motor mount. Pull back on the wrench that is placed on the tensioner as you at the same time place the belt onto the pully under the motor mount. Done. Remember that the tentioner may need to be replaced also. It might be a good idea to do that since that is the usual reason the belts jump off. Just a couple bolts with that and done. It is not expensive.

There are two belts. How do i put the new ac belt on. The new serpentine is on. But there is no tensioner for the ac belt.


the a/c belt is not held taut with a tensioner, you need to loosen the compressor and pry it one way or the other until you get enough slack to remove the old belt and and slide the new one on, to retighten the belt you may need a pry bar of some type ( tire tool, long screwdriver )

Need to replace just the belt for the ac on a 2000 doge caravan


there should by a small pully (called a tentioner) under the alternator pully, get a wrench that fits the nut in the middle and turn it counter clockwise this will loosen the belt to get it around the other pully. Ps. this is easier with two people, one to release tention and one to put the belt on.

Water pump


Is it a 99 or an 03? Either way fairly simple. You will need to remove the splash shield on the passenger side wheel well. Removing tire is optional. If it is a 99, the pump should be located near the radiator. Loosen the bolts that hold the pulley on the pump before removing the belt. This will save you time later. Remove the belt, then remove the pulley. Take all the bolts out of the waterpump. Install in reverse order. If it is an 03, it is near the firewall side of the motor. Remove shield, loosen pulley bolts. The pulley will not come off until you get the water pump out, but you need to remove the bolts for it any way. Take the bolts out of the waterpump. You will need a pry bar to get the pump/pulley out. You can pry on the tensioner against the fenderwell and wiggle it out. Install in reverse order.
