I believe it is a 15mm wrench or if room allows rachet and socket that you will find in the middle of the tensioner a pry ...will only move one way. and thee you go. it's tight so be patient.

Just a new belt will suffice. Check the health of the tensioner though. Why did the belt come off?

Engine Belt tensioner or belt slack adjuster pulley froze up.This is on a 1999 town and country van.

Remove & lubricate with WD-40 for overnight in warm place. If no go--heat with a torch as long as its all metal. If no go--replace.

2003 town and country. belt squealing. put dressing on it. it got worse. wht needs to be donr?

It needs to be replaced. Belt dressing is a scam, it might have worked in the 60's, but in this century it ruins belts.

My 99 Chrysler Town & Country Van Belts are squealing. When I turn on the van it does it loud. And I just got the belts done a couple of months ago. Can you guys help

Try to spray some Anti-Squeal belt dressing on the belt and see if that helps, if not you must likely have a pulley or tensioner thats going bad.

Describe your 1999 Chrysler Town & Country Problem, Belt replacement , cna't seem to get belt tensioner to move when trying to remove belt.

The belt tensioner actually has a locking feature on it. Once the tensioner is in place you are supposed to tighten the bolt center of the tensioner pully which locks in in place. Try loosening this bolt slightly and then moving the tensioner.
