Question about 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan
Please Help if you can ..
How to change it
Hi my name is Allen!
To gain access to the tensioner that holds the belt into place you will need to remove the splash gard behind the right front wheel, removal of the wheel is not neccessary unless you think it would be easier for you.
NEXT: you need to check all the pulleys to make sure the belt did not come off because of one of the pulleys gone bad. You can check them by grabbing each one and see if it wobbles and also make sure it turns freely. If the pulley's are OK then go to the next step. If not contact me for repair procedure!
Next: You will need to route the belt over each of the pulleys the way they are routed on the diagram under the hood, its best to draw out the diagram on a piece of paper to have it near you when routing the belt.
NOTE: You will need a tensioner tool which you may be able to borrow at autozone or some other auto parts store near you. Ask the guy to explain to you how it works.
Once you have routed the belt over all pulleys but one, then you will need to use the tensioner tool to pull the tensioner back and then slip the belt over the last pulley, once you have done this look at all the pulleys to make sure the belt is fitting in the groove area properly. some times the belt will rest outside the groove area on the side of the pulley. That's it!
