SOURCE: need diagram for 2000 dodge dakota serpentine belt

On the 1999 Dakota with the 3.9liter, the fan shroud absolutely DOES NOT have to be removed. Very simple job. Simply use a breaker bar with a 15mm socket on the belt tesioner pulley nut. Using the breaker bar push (as though tightening) the pulley nut...the reaction will be that the tensioner removes tension from the pulley and the entire belt can be removed by easily slipping it toward the front of the vehicle...comes right off. The new belt can go back on in exactly the same manner. By the way the belt routing diagram IS CONVIENENTLY LOCATED between the hood latch and the radiator mounting for simple and quick refernce...one person job, I did removal and installation four times in less than 10 minutes. (why four times? The auto parts store was selling replacement belts that were too long and did not allow the belt tensioner to provide suffiecient tension...I had to try four different manufacturers before the tensioner was adequately tight with room to grow as the belt naturally stretches from use.). I found no stringing around the fan is required because of the way the belt is routed (it doglegs around the main engine pulley which is centered below the fanhousing and then the belt runs from there to the left side of the fan housing...avoiding the fan/fanhousing all-together (sure you can try to go past the fan/fan housing if you so desire...but you dont have to...and besides the space between the pulleys and the fan is ample to allow the belt to pass between with minimal interference or a simple rotation of the fan as you attempt this method. One hint that made my installs easy as pie...the last pulley you put it over should not be a bezeled and ridged pulley or you will needlessly make life difficult for yourself...the last pulley should be the water pump pulley which is a smooth bore and non-ridged pulley (makes you wonder how the belt even stays on it!)...making it easy as pie to slip it right over...as your last act of defiance to that mean old serpentine belt!

There is a distinct possibilty there is engine damage caused when the belt broke. It is best not to turn the engine at all once this happens. Sometimes you can be lucky and there be no damage. Let's hope that's so in your case. These belts are supposed to be replaced every 100,000km.

Replaced the serpentine belt but now car won't start


A serpentine belt almost never breaks unless one thing happens---one of the accessories seizes and won't turn.Remove the belt and see which pulley won't turn.The serpentine belt is strong enough to keep the engine from cranking up(better grip on the pulleys compared to the old V-belts).I actually remember a tech 3 stalls down from me sell a customer an engine,only to find the alternator was just seized.(embarassing!)Any one accessory bearing will keep it from cranking up,and I'm sure you'll find it quickly after removing the belt.

Hi when are you supose to change the serpentine belt on a 2001 Saturn SC2? My SC2 has almost 51,000 miles on it with the orginal belt? Thanks,


The manufacture recommends a serpentine belt replacement every 50,000 miles. However, your serpentine belt should be inspected often for cracks, rips or warping. This can also tell you if you have a pulley that is malfunctioning. Also when you have your serpentine belt off spin your pulleys and make sure they spin free with no hang ups. If you get a hangup you may need to replace that pulley. If you want to replace the serpentine belt yourself here are the steps you take to replace it. This will save you around $50 in labor charges.
  1. You will need a 15mm wrench.
  2. Next you will want to make a diagram of the position of the belt in relation to each pulley. This is important because the belt only goes on one way.
  3. Put the wrench on on the tension pulley
  4. Pull the wrench towards the car releasing the tension on the belt
  5. Slide the belt off
  6. Slowly let the tension pulley release to it's start position
  7. Get the old belt and new belt and compare the two in size, and the amount of groves they have. The belts should be an exact match with the exception that the old belt may be minutely longer from being stretched during use.
  8. Set the new belt on a few pulleys per your diagram
  9. Now get the wrench again and place it on the tension pulley and pull towards the car placing the rest of the belt on the pulleys exactly as the diagram says.
  10. Release the tension pulley gently.
  11. Now you want to inspect how the belt is laying on the pulleys. Make sure the belt is on nice and even and exactly as the diagram says.
  12. Providing all is well to this point turn your car on and go inspect the belt with the engine running and make sure it is staying on the pulleys as it should.
  13. That should be it. 15 minutes and you saved $50. I will upload a diagram for your Car and engine as well.

'93 Mercury Sable Serpentine Belt installation without using AC


You need to have an automotive technitian install a new belt because there is a certain path the belt must follow before it will go on, plus the belt must go around the A/c as it is part of the path. You just don't have to use the A/C.

Tell the tech that the belt broke so that he can look for a reason as to why the belt broke.
