Make sure there is a routing diagram of how the belts go, or make a diagram to aid in reinstalling the belt. There is a spring loaded tensioner below the power steering pump and alternator. You can use a ratchet square drive to put into the tensioner to move it to relieve the tension on the belt.

1994 tempo drive belt installation

You use a special tool to move the belt tensioner to release tension on the belt. Sometimes you can use a regular wrench if you have enough room.
Make sure you have a diagram or draw one of the routing of the belt before you remove it so you know how to put the new one back on.

    2002 XG350 - Do I need new timing and drive belts?

    timing belt and most drive belts are good for 70,000miles, i think the mechanic trying to take you for a ride, as for the drive belts inspect them if there is any cracking ware marks etc replace them but seriously if they look like new which they should with only that many miles would not need replacing.

    Fan belts

    the dodge neon doesnt have any fan belts. It does have a v belt that drives the air conditioner and power steering. Their is also a surpenteen that drives the generator. its best to replace both at the same time. the best way to do that is jack up the car and remove the passenger tire. remove the cover with a 10mm socket should be 3 of them. cut the old ones off. when you put the new ones on use a socket to rotate the harmonic balancer to help put the new surpenteen belt on. then do the same with the v-belt. this way you dont have to loosen anything or tighten anything. just becarefull not to damage the belt while installing.
