How to change a serpentine belt on a 1999 intrepid?? Does the alternator need to be loosened??


The alternator does not have to be loosened.

The tensioner mount has a square hole in it for inserting a ratchet or a breaker bar. Pull the tensioner in the direction which realeases the tension on the serpentine belt.

I need to replace the alternator on my 1999 dodge intrepid. is this something i can do myself?


that is not a problem follow the steps below
Instructions
Things You'll Need: New alternator Belt tension gauge Socket wrench set Torque wrench 1 Determine which alternator your Dodge Intrepid will need. You'll want to be sure the new alternator is compatible with your Intrepid's engine. Models produced after 1997 are equipped with a 2.7 L EER, 3.2 L or 3.5 L EGJ engine. 2 Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench and remove the lower plastic splash shield. Drain the transmission fluid and disconnect the lower radiator support. 3 Loosen the "T" bolt, pivot bolt and drive belt adjusting bolt with a socket wrench but do not remove them. This will allow you to disconnect the drive belt. 4 Loosen the terminal nut for the alternator so you can remove the B+ wire. Disconnect the circuit plug for the alternator and remove the pivot bolt, using care not to lose the spacer. Remove the mounting bolts and the alternator assembly. 5 Install the new alternator assembly by reversing the removal procedure. Tighten the terminal nut on the alternator to 89 inch pounds with a torque wrench. Use a belt tension gauge and socket wrench to torque the "T" bolt until the tension on the drive belt is 120 lbs. for a used belt and 180 to 200 lbs. for a new belt. 6 Use a torque wrench to torque the pivot bolt and 10mm mounting bolt to 40 foot pounds. Torque the 8mm mounting bolt to 30 foot pounds.

What size wrench do you need to change out the alternator?


You are going to need more than one wrench to do the job. This isn't a Harley. A 3/8 drive, metric socket set with 6 point sockets should get you started, you will need to loosen the belt first, if it is one belt driving everything, then loosen the tensioner and the belt will be off. Remember how it goes. Then you have at least 2 bolts holding the alternator on there, Plus the wire connections, replace the new one in the same order backwards, you should be all set. Hope this helps.

How do i loosen the altinator belt on a 2000 dodge interpid


There is a "T bolt" on the alternator that you need to loosen. Look for this to be one of the two bolts that hold the alternator in place.

Loosen do not remove.

Replacing alternator in a 2001 Dodge Intrepid


the easiest way is going to first be to remove the serpentine belt which requires you to loosen the nut on the end of the idler pulley just above the alternator, then behind the pulley is a bolt with a 13mm head on it that you will want to loosen after the pulley is loose to relieve tension off the belt. Remove the belt. Next make sure you remove the battery cables to ensure you dont fry yourself to the car when unhooking the electrical connections from the alternator, your battery is located on the passenger side, down behind and underneath the headlight. Then go under the car and remove the black plastic clips that hold the splash shield up under the bumper. After this the alternator becomes as accesible as it can be, remove it from the bottom. Thanks for using fixya!!

The alternator and power steering belt should have been removed first, but here is the way to get it off.
