Which engine do you have?

On the 3.0, there is a routing diagram on the black cover between the belts and the engine itself. You will need a 1/2 inch socket or breaker bar to release tension on the belt.

How to replace the belt on 2000 dodge caravan


I had to replace the brushes on my 2000 Caravan alternator so I had to remove the serpentine belt. I was able to remove the belt by prying the idler pulley inwards to take of the pressure and slip it off so I think you should be able to do the same thing.

Belt won't tighten on 98 dodge caravan. Does the


If the alternator is fixed then its the tension pulley that tightens the belt. but if the alternator is mounted with a pivotal pin and can be moved along a bolt slot, then it's the alternator that tightens the belt.

1999 Dodge Caravan 3.8L: I need to change the serpentine belt tensioner assy. Do I need to remove the alternator to access the tensioner assy 15mm mounting bolt ?


the nut that holds the tensioner on is under the alternator and would be much easier to remove with the alternator out of the way.

Need serpentine belt routing diagram for 1994 Dodge grand caravan


3.3L?
Looking at the engine from front (right side of the Van): Stating at the Top, Going Left to Right and Clockwise:
Over the Alternator
To under the Idle Pulley,
To Over the AC Compressor.
To the Left Side of the Water Pump.
To the Right side and Under the Crankshaft Pulley
To the Right side and Over and Down the Tensioner
To Under the Power Steering Pump
And Back up-to the Left side of the Alternator.
Advise when puting it on:
Put the Belt around everything else accept for the Alternator. After it is around all the rest of the Pulleys - Pull the belt up - tight from the Power steering Pump and the Idle Pulley to form a loop, holding the Belt close to the Altenator Pulley.
Using the 15mm wrench or belt tensioner bar - rotate the Tensioner Pulley towards the front of the Van and then place the belt over the Alternator.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

My 99 dodge grand caravan was steering extremely hard. I found there was no fluid in the reservoir, and adding fluid didn't improve the steering. What are my alternatives at this point? Or maybe I should...
