Tryimg to loosen belt to replace ac belt

I would replace the steering pump belt at the same time you do the alternator belt (buy both).
To take off the alternator belt .
First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp(or a block fuse under the hood). Facing the back of the car , reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt.
To take off the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley it holds the adjuster pulley in place . With the adjuster pulley loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to adjust/take off the steering pump belt.

How do I loosen the pully for the serpentine belt

>>> NOTE<<< It is not necessary to adjust belt tension on the 3.7L or 4.7L engines., THE PROCEDURE FOR DRIVE BELT REMOVAL IS SIMPLE, USING A 15MM,17mm,or 18mm Wrench Get to the Center Bolt on the Tentioner Pulley, ( the SMOOTH NON-GROOVED Pulley) and turn to the Right and Left The Direction you feel the Tentioner SPRING Fight Against you will be what you Want they VARIE in Terms of Adjustment Loosening the Belt for Removal, Simply Turn it Untill Drive Belt is Loose Enough to Remove

On 3.7L/4.7L engines, the tensioner is equipped with an indexing tang on back of tensioner and an indexing stop on tensioner housing. If a new belt is being installed, tang must be within approximately 24 mm (.94 inches) of indexing stop. Belt is considered new if it has been used 15 minutes or less.
If the above specification cannot be met, check for:
  • The wrong belt being installed (incorrect length/ width)
  • Worn bearings on an engine accessory (A/C compressor, power steering pump, water pump, idler pulley or generator)
  • A pulley on an engine accessory being loose
  • Misalignment of an engine accessory
  • Belt incorrectly routed.

I am Confident this WILL Help you to Conduct the BELT REMOVAL Procedure.

Belt adjustment is done by loosening the bolts holding the poser steering on and screwing in/out the screw under the pump.(head is under the pump facing the left fender) Draw yourself a diagram before removing the belt so you don't have a problem putting it back on.

How do you release the belt tensioner to remove the alternator, on a 2002 Dodge Caravan?

There is a bolt in the tensioner, loosen that some and you will notice more play it it, lift on the tensioner, or if you have a serpatine belt tool use that, there will be a arrow on the tensioner on what way to push. Make sure you tighten that bolt back up when putting the new belt on, and to double check the belt is tight afterwords. there should always be a little play in the tensioner, just not much.

1999 serpatine belt

Hi,the serpentine belt is tensioned automatically by means of a spring loaded tensioner,this is released by using a long 1/2 inch extension bar which fits into a square hole, once pulled back the tensioner can then be held by a nail etc, which is inserted into a hole which aligns with another hole,thus holding the tensioner back in a pre-loaded position to allow you to replace the belt,once replaced you can then pull back the extension bar to remove the nail again and then slowly let off the tension, IF replacing the tensioner, The new one comes pre-loaded with a pin in location to hold it ,hope this is of some help, Bill.

On the Inside of the Engine Compartment you will find the Routing Sticker for the Belt to Reinstall. Locate the Tensioner (Will look like a Pulley that has one Round Pulley Under the Belt and One larger Round Pulley Mounted Above that. In the Middle of the Large Pulley there is a Bolt. Get a Wratchet and Turn it. It will Lower the Pulley under the Belt and Loosen the Tension Off of the Belt. Remove the Belt. Follow the Diagram Under Hood to Reinstall.
