Not difficult at all just not how the old belt comes off or refer to the diagram provided under the hood. There is a tension pully that is spring loaded just put a wrench on the nut after gettin the belt in place then move the pully giving you enough slack to slide it on.

What would cause difficulty in putting on a serpentine belt? The car squeeks when the belt was on before, now it is difficult to put on the belt in order to see what causes the problem.

Make sure that you have identified the tensioner pulley as apposed to the idler pulley. With the 15mm socket on the tensioner pulley's bolt, rotate it clockwise and this will release the tension on the belt, or in the case of installing a new serpentine belt, allow you to get it where it belongs. Hope this helped Tim

Yes I have a 97 town & country and it has a couple problems.. one is a sqeeky belt and the tranny feels like its slipping once in awhile but and then when checked they say its. fine..

Belts these days aren't as forgiving as the old V belts, when they go bad they glaze, slip, make noise etc. They may LQQk good but squeaking is first warning of belt going bad. I'd replace it for peace of mind. Re: Trans - have you ever had trans fluid and filter changed? It's one of the most overlooked maintenance items of all time. It should be changed every 50k, 30k if you tow a trailer. The $50 you spend on a trans filter service will save you a $2000 transmission job.

Attatch socket or breaker bar to bolt on pulley, either push or pull to release tension. Keep firm grip and release SLOWLY after belt is released. It will spring back and could cause personal injury or break the pulley if you just let it go.
