Question about 1996 Chrysler Town & Country
My drive belt has slipped off the engine. How can I put it back on?
If the serpen tine belt slipped off chances are that the spring loaded adjuster pulley is no longer functioning like it should replace the belt tensioner assembly and new belt. you can also purchase a repair manual at an auto parts store for very little as well as ther parts. there should also be a diagram under the hood that shows the correct rounting of the serpentine belt.

Belt Tension Inspection
Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.

Removal & Installation
Belt replacement is a relatively simple matter rotating the tensioner off the belt (to relieve tension) and holding the tensioner in this position as the belt is slipped from its pulley. The tensioner arm contains a machined receiver for a 3 / 8 in. driver from a ratchet or breaker bar.
