Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
How to release tension on 2001 stratus 3.0. I can't get any tools it's so cramped in there.
Forget trying to get at it from the top, go underneath. Take off the plastic shroud inside the passenger side fender. It's held to the frame by three bolts (10mm?) and a couple of quick fasteners. Once it's out of the way you can see and work fairly easily. I did not need to jack. Locate the flat pulley, it's obviously the tensioner. Loosen, but do not remove, the nut in the center of the pulley. Then locate the bolt head on the end/tip of the bracket that the pulley is mounted to. That is the adjuster. Loosening that bolt loosens the belt and vice versa. The power steering belt tensioner is very similar. Enjoy yourself!!
