Question about 1998 Plymouth Breeze
Look around the power steering pump, (Under or maybe behind) you should see a belt tensioner, loosen it and any other brackets close to that have a sliding point, once loose, the belt should slip right6 off, pay close attichion to the way it comes off, you don't wanna put it back on backwards, or your water pump will run in the wrong direction and cause it to over heat

that is possible I have had cars do that before. although fixing it will not be easy because of the setup. You need to get the front cover off and check the timing marks to see if the cams are in time with the crank if one cam is off you can lose one or more cylinders...

All you need is a long prubar (or you can rent a tensioner wrench at the parts store) essentially a open end wrench with a 3 ft handle.
Put the tensioner wrench on the nub of the tensioner and pull back... this will release the tension on the old belt. Remove it from one of the pulleys, and then from the entire system.
Note how it is routed through the pulleys, and put the new one on the same way.
The car should have a sticker on the radiator support telling you the path of the belt.

the tensioner is on the alternator there is usually a cover over it you need to loosen the 2 screws on the alternator and turn the "adjuster" screw till the belt is loose enough to come off note the whay it is run then install and tighten the new belt it must be very tight or it will slip

you can get step by step instructions from a chilton manual. i go to the library, and copy the page or pages i need. libraries have every chilton auto manuals. may have to rent a specialty tool for belt tensioner pulley. can be rented at any parts store, money is returned when tool is. usually 20 bucks. put tool on tension pulley, pull to loosen belt tension, with other hand slip belt off of alternator or easiest pulley to get to. before you take belt off take a mental picture of belt route. when installing new belt remember if pulley is smooth it contacts smooth side of belt.
