To release the belt you have to loosen the Belt tensioner enough to get the belt out of the way. Find a wrench that fits the puly bolt and turn it either clockwise or counter clock wise to depress the pully arm. Becareful, as the tensioner is spring load and it can bounce back and hurt you while removing the belt. I dont know what size the engine is but, the tensioner should look something like this..

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable (both on diesels).
  2. Release tension and remove the drive belt.
  3. Disconnect the wiring harness at the plastic connector.
  4. Remove the output terminal nut(s) and disconnect the output cable.
  5. On diesel engines: loosen, but do NOT remove, the alternator bracket-to-engine bolt.
  6. Remove alternator mounting bolts. Note any shims or spacers in the assembly.
  7. Carefully remove the alternator from the engine.

To install:
  1. Position the alternator on the engine. Be sure to install any shims or spacers.
  2. Install the alternator mounting bolts and tighten to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) for 2.5L and diesel engines, 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm) for others.
  3. Connect the electrical harness. Connect the output cable and tighten the nut.
  4. Install and the accessory drive belt and check tension.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Check the alternator for proper operation.
Tensioner must be moved to loosen belt
Use a socket and breaker bar to rotate the tensioner and remove the serpentine belt. (see pic)

There is a tensioner pulley. It is not connected to anything except the engine block. Usually has a piece of rubber under it. You can either pull the pully up or press it down to loosen the belt.

You can view a free online repair manual at www.autozne.com It is free to register and has the complete repair manual.

I could look up step by step directions but will need motor size and to know if its 4x4 or not

On my 2000 Dodge Durango it is the pulley farthest to the left as you look at it. You just turn the center clockwise as described above.

Check the wiring to the Alternator, ever inch of it under the hood, it must be shorted to ground somewhere along the length of the wiring harness.

My battery keeps draining down at night it's a 99 dodge durango


you have something draining the battery,check for any lights that might be staying on,interior light,stop light under the hood light(if any),glove box light trunk light, if you have a multimeter with amp testing capability or an amp meter you can check where the drain is by removing each fuse & put the probes on each side the terminals until you find a drainage,that way you might be able to find out what is draining the power & rectify it......hope this helps......cheers

I have a squeal that makes my battery voltage drop and im not sure what it is. it is not the alternator


can be a couple of things, the belt may be slipping on the pullys or the brushes are worn in the alternator, possibly the latter, take to a mechanic he won't charge you to look at it. Good luck

Check your Belt Tensioner. If it is not keeping the Belt Tight Enough you will have the Above Problem.
