I have just replaced the belt myself. Loosen the nut slightly that holds on the AC belt idler pulley. I removed the fan assy for access room but maybe you have smaller hands than me. Down at the bottom of the AC belt adjustment assembly, there is a long adjuster bolt. I beleive that the head is 13mm on my 2001 Trep ES. This bolt head can be accessed at an angle thru the bottom using a long extension to loosen and tighten the belt. Remember to tighten the nut in the center of the idler pulley that you loosened before.
Remember SAFETY! Never get under anything that is not well supported. No jack is trustworthy.

How do I replace a serpentine belt bypassing the air conditioner ... I am not using the air conditioner pulley at all.


Odds are you can't. The ac compressor is mounted in the belt routing so it would need the pulley to keep the belt tight.
You can get a used compressor from a salvage yard and mount it in place of your old part if necessary. It will allow the belt to run even if it has no freon in the system.
There are a few vehicles that a replacement dummy pulley was designed for, but I am not aware of one for your vehicle. Usually if you try to run the belt without the compressor pulley, it will rub against something or not allow the belt to run in the right direction.

Replacing alternator in a 2001 Dodge Intrepid


the easiest way is going to first be to remove the serpentine belt which requires you to loosen the nut on the end of the idler pulley just above the alternator, then behind the pulley is a bolt with a 13mm head on it that you will want to loosen after the pulley is loose to relieve tension off the belt. Remove the belt. Next make sure you remove the battery cables to ensure you dont fry yourself to the car when unhooking the electrical connections from the alternator, your battery is located on the passenger side, down behind and underneath the headlight. Then go under the car and remove the black plastic clips that hold the splash shield up under the bumper. After this the alternator becomes as accesible as it can be, remove it from the bottom. Thanks for using fixya!!

1995 Dodge Intrepid ES 3.5 v6 cranks but won't start


is there any compression??? If the timing belt is broken, the valves will not be moving. It will be making a higher-pitch cranking sound if its the timing belt.
