That is not a problem follow the steps below
Instructions
Things You'll Need: New alternator Belt tension gauge Socket wrench set Torque wrench 1 Determine which alternator your Dodge Intrepid will need. You'll want to be sure the new alternator is compatible with your Intrepid's engine. Models produced after 1997 are equipped with a 2.7 L EER, 3.2 L or 3.5 L EGJ engine. 2 Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket wrench and remove the lower plastic splash shield. Drain the transmission fluid and disconnect the lower radiator support. 3 Loosen the "T" bolt, pivot bolt and drive belt adjusting bolt with a socket wrench but do not remove them. This will allow you to disconnect the drive belt. 4 Loosen the terminal nut for the alternator so you can remove the B+ wire. Disconnect the circuit plug for the alternator and remove the pivot bolt, using care not to lose the spacer. Remove the mounting bolts and the alternator assembly. 5 Install the new alternator assembly by reversing the removal procedure. Tighten the terminal nut on the alternator to 89 inch pounds with a torque wrench. Use a belt tension gauge and socket wrench to torque the "T" bolt until the tension on the drive belt is 120 lbs. for a used belt and 180 to 200 lbs. for a new belt. 6 Use a torque wrench to torque the pivot bolt and 10mm mounting bolt to 40 foot pounds. Torque the 8mm mounting bolt to 30 foot pounds.

How to change a serpentine belt on a 1999 intrepid?? Does the alternator need to be loosened??


The alternator does not have to be loosened.

The tensioner mount has a square hole in it for inserting a ratchet or a breaker bar. Pull the tensioner in the direction which realeases the tension on the serpentine belt.

1999 dodge intrepid, battery light on, replaced battery and engine computer, light still on. Is there a reset? What else can cause this dash light to come on?


If your alternator is going bad the battery indicator light will come on your dash. I did the same thing before thinking my battery was bad and buying a new one. Turns out it was the alternator. Hope this helps..
