Nothing to do with cracks yaddi yadda. The belt on a 1992 Chrysler 3.3 V6 of almost ant denomination will come off if water gets on it. Drive through a deep puddle and it will fall off. I bought a Serpentine Belt wrench from NAPA and put my own belt back on. I studiously avoid driving through puddles.

In my opinion one design defect of the engine compartment is that the underside is completely open and allows water and snow to be thrown up inside and over the engine drive belt. The small splash shield underneath does not divert the water that well. But a new belly pan is not part of the technical service bulletin.

Serpentine belt fell off. - belt-diagram-image.jpg Chrysler's solution is the replacement of the idler pulley and the pulleys retaining bracket. In the TSB I read Chrysler's engineers have decided that on some models the idler pulley is misaligned by .08 inches.
This is why I could not see the misalignment with my naked eye. An updated engine bracket and pulley assembly is available at your local Chrysler parts department.
This job is not highly technical, but is time-consuming. You will have to take a lot of stuff off to gain access to the engine brackets retaining bolts. This may not be a very good do-it-yourself auto repair depending on your skill level.

Check the belt for wear and cracks, if ok, loosen up the belt adjustments and carefully rewind the belt around each tension wheel, when in correct alignment, tighten the belt adjustments you loosened up to get this far, have some one watch the belt for correct alignment while you turn the engine over, then check timing with timing light...and adjust accordingly...

Just go to the parts store and ask for the serpentine belt for your make and model. They will ask a few questions like, does it have AC, what size is the engine...ect.
