There are two ways belts are kept tight on cars. The old way is with a pully or a component ( like a pump) that has a sliding bracket . You would look and see which pully or complenent has the long slot that indicates that component will slide when it's bolts are loosened.
The new way is to have a pully with a spring inside it that automatically tightens the belt when the belt is installed. If you have that style, you will need to put a wrench either on the bolt holding the pully on, or in a slot to twist the pulley against to losten the belt so you can change it.I'm thinking you have the second type.

If it is a 3.0 engine, you should have an idler pulley you have to loosen to remove the belt. You loosen the bolt in the pulley then turn the adjusting bolt.

Where would i find a serpentine belt for my 1996 grand caravan?


You did not say what motor but about any auto parts store will have that part but you will need to know what motor is in you van. Also check the belt tension pulley if replacing the belt most of the time you will find it is geting week and needs replaced to maintain proper tightness

We need to replace the serpentine belt on our 1996 dodge caravan but the diagram has been removed.


Get the replacement belt, and then note the pulleys that have smooth finish, and note the pulleys that have the grooved finish.

Just 'thread' the serpentine belt, one pulley after another alternating between the smooth and grooved until the last remaining pulley is the tensioner pulley.

Use the breaker bar to allow the pulley to accept the belt, and you're done.

Serpentine belt slipped off and the belt tensioner doesn't move


Yes! The belt will always flip off if it siezes. It's easy to change if you have the room. Good luck!

How to install serpentine belt on 1996 dodge caravan se


Good morning! I am enclosing a serpentine belt routing diagram to aid in the installation of your serpentine belt. There are 4 different engine possibilities but i have enclosed all. The serpentine belt tensioner is released by rotating in a clockwise direction as shown in the diagrams. Engine configuration will determine what tools you need but the installation is relatively easy to do. Have a great day!4c86670.gif8f5ea2e.gif68b7bf5.gif

Replacement of belt tensioner


Hello
Welcome to FY,
Your tensioner is replaced as a unit,
remove the belt.
there is a nut 15mm that holds the tensioner to the engine, the tensioner and pulley comes off together the new one will have a pulley on it too, install the ne one the same as the old one came off. i would replace the belt too.
