This procedure is wayyyy to long to list on here. Your better off going to your local auto parts store and buying a repair manual for your car. It will have both detailed procedures for fixing both of your items. You can also goto the library and get the factory service manual for free. Good luck to you and thanks for using fixya!

Did this on my 2002 Stratus 2.4L. I agree with other poster, you do have to remove the passenger tire and wheel wall to do it, but the tensioner travels clockwise.
Note: I offer this solely as a description of how I accomplished the task on my vehicle. It should not be taken as me advising anyone else in any way on how or whether they manage to repair their own vehicles.
1) Engaged parking brake, loosened lugs on passenger front tire.
2) Jacked-up and placed jack-stand.
3) Removed piece of black under-carriage which surrounds the oil filter and attaches to front bumper. There are at least 10 plastic push-pins to remove and I managed to destroy half of them in the process.
4) Positoned belt over lower pulleys and tensioner (as best as possible) then used a bungee to hold the top end of belt up while I worked under the car.
5) Used a 3/8 ratchet and inserted into square hole attached to the tensioner, disengaged the tensioner (moves clockwise) then used a brace to keep the ratchet handle in that position.
6) From top, removed bungee and finished placing belt over alternator, checked the position of entire belt, reengaged the tensioner, and replaced wall and wheel.

The car most likely has a blower motor resistor, if it is like my 2004 dodge dakota, you're lucky, when mine quit it was very cold and the first portion of the resistor burned out, taking out all four fan speeds. Enough about me, lets get to your problem. the blower motor resistor is located inside the HVAC duct, (heating, ventalation, and cooling) on the passenger side footwell area. it is accessed from inside the passenger compartment. It has multiple resistor circuts. thats why you lost the two lower speeds and then the two faster speeds. You can test it with a multi meter to see if it is open. it looks like this when removed.
They are about 33.00 from rockauto.com. When you find the conector on the duct that is conected to this resistor block, remove the conector with a small screwdriver, you have to find the lock tab and gently lift it up and pull on the conector to remove the conector. remove one screw and it will come out. most times you can tell if they are bad by looking at them. if you cant test it have someone you know that can do it. I am 99% positive that that is your problem. unless the conector came loose. Pleas let us know if this was helpful as i strive to improve helping others on a daily basis. Good Luck! and You'll be warm again soon.

The thermostat on this car is located on the passenger side lower Engine block. Follow the lower radiator hose and it will lead you right to it. The Wheel and splash guarding need to be removed as well as the Alternator to gain access to the housing bolts. It about a 3 hour job to replace thermostat.
