Question about 1994 Dodge Caravan
Happened 3 times over 9 mos. on rainy or very damp day. Replaced belt once and tensioner after first incident. Sequel: All suggestions are appreciated, but had been tried before posting. My mechanic's researched this solution which isn't cheap, but it works. Change to a double sided serpentine belt and change the idler pull to a grooved type. Details will be provided if really needed.
Make sure the plastic shield is not missing below the pulleys which keeps road debris and excess water off belt and pulleys. Also check that the alternator or power steering pump are not slightly out of alignment.
