Here's a link to a web site and page for your year dodge. Just scroll down to your engine and on the left side under PART NUMBER list look for Belt Routing Diagram. If it's not listed under your engine it should be under one of the others.
Hope this helps.

Inspection

Inspect the drive belt for signs of glazing or cracking. A glazed belt will be perfectly smooth from slippage, while a good belt will have a slight texture of fabric visible. Cracks will usually start at the inner edge of the belt and run outward. All worn or damaged drive belts should be replaced immediately.


Removal & Installation

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Rotate the auto tensioner clockwise to release tension, then remove the drive belt.

To install:
  1. Install drive belt (A). Route the belt over the components in the following order: Crankshaft pulley - A/C pulley - idler pulley - generator pulley - water pump pulley - P/S pump pulley - tensioner pulley.
  2. Rotate auto tensioner arm in the counter-clockwise moving auto tensioner pulley bolt with wrench.
  3. After putting belt on auto tensioner pulley, release the auto tensioner pulley slowly.

How do I remove the belt so I can remove the Water Pump?


If you are referring to serpentine belt, Thisis how to do it. Lift the hood and prop it open. Find thelock nut on the serpentine belt and use a wrench to loosen it. Turn the adjustment bolt counterclockwiseto remove the serpentine belt. This bolt is located under the water pump hose.Remember how you remove the belt so that you can reroute the new beltcorrectly. Install the new serpentine belt by securingit on the pulleys in the same route as the old belt. Check the belt routing onthe underside of the hood to make sure you get it right. Create tension in the back of the belt byturning the adjustment bolt clockwise. Check that the belt is on each pulleyproperly. The belt should be centered on each pulley, not on the edge.Tightenthe lock nut to secure the serpentine belt in place.

No power steering, engine cut out but has restarted engine hot fan on, no warm air so take this as a belt problem?


The symptoms you have described sounds most like you had a serpentine belt break or fall off the pulley system (rare but possible).That is a fairly simple job to replace the serpentine belt,whether you replace it yourself or have a professional do the job it isn't a costly repair, providing that is the only problem.There is a serpentine belt routing label under the hood, usually on the plastic piece that goes across the front of the engine compartment near the hood latch release.There is a spring loaded belt tensioner that holds tension on the serpentine belt(labeled on the routing label) rotate the tensioner against the spring pressure, rout the belt according to the routing label, then slowly release tensioner against the new belt and that should complete the installation.Hopefully that is the solution. Good luck !
