I can't say for sure but it could be the tensioner pully. I don't think you should be able to move it side to side. That would indicate that the bearing is worn.

Serpintine belt routing for a 2002 dodge ram 1500 with a 5.9 l engine


this is farely easy to figure out from looking at your pullies. ribbed pullies normaly take the ribbed side of the belt and smooth pullies take the smooth side of the belt. i would start at the tentioner pully (which is smooth) the put the inside of the belt around the 2 nearest pullies and weave it alternating in and out of the rest of the pullies.

Picture diagram to show me how to put the belt back on


Tony,
If your serpintine belt fell off, and it is not broken, you have a much bigger problem then you think.
Before puttin a new belt on, check all pulleys, Power steerin, alternator, AC,Belt tensioner,waterpump The AC may or may not move ,
If one of those units don't move, don't put the belt on till you replace that which didn't move

What is the easiest way to replace a tensioner pulley on a 2002 Dodge caravan. Do I need to replace the whole assembly? Or can I replace just the pulley. It has the 3.3 flex fuel, if that makes a...


you will have to replace the whole assembly, the spring that keeps the belt tight is in the middle and cannot be replaced without considerable pain and suffering. use a 1/2 inch ratched and release the tension on the belt, carefully slip it off the pully. keep as much pressure on the belt as you can, use someting and tie it out of your way, keep the tension tight this will prevernt you from having to mess with lining up the belt on all the pully's. the tensioner is held on with 4 13 mm bolds (1/2 in SAE ) may work as well. wiggle it a little, ant it will pop off. . reverse the process. Make sure the serpantine belt is filly within all the pully's before you start it or you'll be replacing a belt as well.

How do you release the belt tensioner to remove the alternator, on a 2002 Dodge Caravan?


There is a bolt in the tensioner, loosen that some and you will notice more play it it, lift on the tensioner, or if you have a serpatine belt tool use that, there will be a arrow on the tensioner on what way to push. Make sure you tighten that bolt back up when putting the new belt on, and to double check the belt is tight afterwords. there should always be a little play in the tensioner, just not much.

199 dodge caravan 3.3 tensioner


yes you must jack the vehicle up put it on jack stands for safety, and around the power steeirng pump under neath you will see the nut that is holding it you will need a long extension and a swivel.
should be 15, 14, or 13 mm
when installing the belt itself, you must put it on the idler pulley last that is the other smooth pulley, otherwise it will be a bear to get on. good luck.

There is a tension pully located under the alternator. It has a bolt head in the middle of it. Place a long box end wrench on it and pull it towards you. The tensioner will move forward. first put the belt on the pullies properly. (see diagram placed at left side of the hood release). Then leave the belt off the pully that is located just under the motor mount. Pull back on the wrench that is placed on the tensioner as you at the same time place the belt onto the pully under the motor mount. Done. Remember that the tentioner may need to be replaced also. It might be a good idea to do that since that is the usual reason the belts jump off. Just a couple bolts with that and done. It is not expensive.
