Most belts are controlled by an automatic tensioner. If yours is check to see if the tensioner is working properly - it should spring back when moved to the loose position.

hi, you should find a serp. belt routing diagram on the cross member that supports your radiator. if not- disconnect neg batt terminal for safety. you'll need a long breaker bar metric. as most, if not all fasteners on your ram are in metric. cant remember right size socket, but just go through your metric set and "eyeball"it. once you have the proper socket-detention the belt by pulling breaker bar clockwise. remove old belt. it maybe useful to take a picture of how your old belt is routed with a camera equipped cell phone (if it is still on) so that if you get into trouble, you can look at the picture as a reference point. new serpentine belt install--insert new belt over the cooling fan route under crank pulley-over fan pulley, around p/s pump pulley,up and around a/c comp pulley, under idler pulley, over alternator pulley and finally around tensioner pulley. pull breaker bar clockwise to slip belt past and onto the tensioner pulley. release tension on tensioner. be sure to check tensioner indexing marks located on the tensioner arm this is to make sure the new belt is installed properly. reconnect neg batt cable to terminal-remove any hand tools from engine bay, start engine and observe belt operation. hope this helps!

By chance, have you looked on the underside of your hood, most, if not all vehicles have the diagram there, it should be a white sticker with the pulleys and everything.

What is the pulley called that is to tighten the belt on a 1998 dodge ram 1500 4wd truck?


The accessory belt tensioner is what keeps the accessory drive belt tight, or you can purchase just the accessory belt tensioner pulley separate, however the complete unit should be replaced.

How do u change a frive belt on a 2002 dodge ram


There is usually a diagram under the hood to show you the routing of the belt or you can get an auto parts to give you a diagram. The drive belt runs on what is called a tensioner and this tensioner has a bolt on front of it that you place a socket or specialized tool on. Pull or push the bolt and the spring in the tensioner will move either up or down allowing you to remove the belt and or replace the belt. Hope this helped

Belt problem after replacing power steering pump and pully 98ram


If the tensioner can be moved by hand the lock down bolt is not doing its job. Try to tighten the bolt with the belt pulled tight and then release. If the belt loosens the bolt is not working as it should. Make sure theres a lock washer (split lock washer) between the bolt head and the post.
