SOURCE: serpentine belt replacement
The grand caravan should have a diagram showing the proper placement for the serpentine appropriate to your engine. There is usually a sticker showing the belt placement and travel direction on the front most engine cover (plastic splash shield over the radiator). You will likely require a special tool to loosen the tensioner so that you may easily replace the belt. Do not attempt to do this without the appropriate diagram and path.
If the belt is still making noise or slipping you can purchase an upgrade belt which has traction grooves on both sides, this is a commonly needed solution for the grand caravans.

Looking at the engine from front (right side of the Van): Stating at the Top, Going Left to Right and Clockwise:
Over the Alternator
To under the Idle Pulley,
To Over the AC Compressor.
To the Left Side of the Water Pump.
To the Right side and Under the Crankshaft Pulley
To the Right side and Over and Down the Tensioner
To Under the Power Steering Pump
And Back up-to the Left side of the Alternator.
Advise when puting it on:
Put the Belt around everything else accept for the Alternator. After it is around all the rest of the Pulleys - Pull the belt up - tight from the Power steering Pump and the Idle Pulley to form a loop, holding the Belt close to the Altenator Pulley.
Using the 15mm wrench or belt tensioner bar - rotate the Tensioner Pulley towards the front of the Van and then place the belt over the Alternator.
