How do you replace the engine belt on a 98 dodge dakota. The belt is frayed and looks like it will either break or come off. Is it a fix I can do myself?


yes they are very easy to replace of course get the correct belt at the auto store they will ask you the year and model of the car.. you can find excellent videos on how to do this by going to youtube videos now it says belt tensioner and this video it to replace that but you will see how the belt comes off its very easy just remember the way the belt is ran there should be a diagram somewhere under the hood by the latch mech.... you shouldent have to remove anything but the belt..good luck i hope this helps you..

Serpentine belt on 1992 dakota


You don't mention which engine you have in your '92 Dakota, but it's likely the 3.3L and if so, here's the diagram. Even if your engine is not the 3.3L the principals for replacing the belt are the same.

Get a serpentine belt tension release tool (local parts store) and use it to take the tension wheel away from the belt, which will make it loose enough to remove by simply pulling it off one of the pulleys (the alternator will be easiest) and then wiggle it out of the engine bay. The tool should come with a selection of heads for the different variations of tensioner arms/bolts. Once the belt is removed, replacing it is the reverse process.

Hope this helps, and please rate my answer.
