Well, I can't see the tie rods so I can't help you there. But, if someone placed just one lug nut on the wheel then it probably elongated the slots on the other four holes for the studs. This would make the wheel junk and would need to be replaced. This probably ruined all the threads on the studs also. You are very lucky you did not have an accident related to the wheel. I wish I could see the vehicle, but can't help unless I know the situiation and condition of suspension parts.

How do I remove and replace the belt tensioner on a 1999 dodge Caravan 3.3L v6

You have to go through the wheel well on the pass side of van. Remove tire. Pull off the inner fender splash panel. Put wrench on right side lug of tensioner lift up(counterclockwise on V6). remove belt. Only one bolt holding the tensioner on the engine. New tensioner is $80. If just making noise , just replace the pulley around $20. Use a Dayco or Gates belt. Goodyear gatorbacks make noise

How do I remove the battery

It's in front of the right (passenger) side front wheel, there is a removable access panel for getting it out with the wheel turned hard to the right, if looking under the hood, look down low on the right side and you will see it, its sort of buried under some other stuff.
