How do you release the tension from the serpentine belt tensioner for a 2005 dodge grand caravan?

most any auto zone or advance auto should print you out a diagram and let you use a tension tool by just leaving a small deposit to insure it's return. Should be a small wheel about 4" across with a bolt in the center. putting the tool or a half inch drive socket that fits the bolt head and turning clockwise should release tension but sometimes they're hard to get at hence the tool. usually just below the alternator and/or power steering resevoir.
hope this helps you

Replacing the EGR valve on 2004 caravan 3.3 L

This is how I do it, maybe it will work for you too. Remove the top bolt. Using a prybar, roll the egr backwards towards the engine. This roll is also in the direction the bottom bolt has to turn to come out. From the new angle you can use a wrench or 1/4 drive wobble on it. When it gets back to the point you can't get the wrench on it, use needlenose pliers on the threaded end to finish the removal. Going back is a little tricky, start the bottom bolt and run it in almost all the way and then roll the egr forward to start the top bolt. Tighten the bottom the best you can first. Tighten the top bolt last, this puts more pressure against the bottom bolt making it tighter. Otherwise you have to remove the alternator.

I need to replace the EGR valve.

No need to remove or move the alternator. You can get on the 10mm bolt with a short 1/4" socket and ratchet. Take the EGR tube off first, be careful not to lose the tube to EGR valve gasket. I usually use anti-seize when I put the EGR valve back on. That would be the mount bolts for the valve and the tube.
