I am working on a 1998 Dodge Dakota R/T that hit a pole on the right front corner, taking out the fender bumper, grill, hood, radiator, radiator fan etc. This repair (disassembly) was started by somebody else. There are missing bolts, bushings etc, mainly centered around the radiator and front of the engine compartment. Where can I get a detailed assembly drawing of the engine compartment that will show all of the parts, nuts, bolts, washers, bushings, brackets, SRS sensors etc.

dont you have a owners manual. its says the chassis no location. if you have vehicle registration book, it will be having chassis number written. Usually vehicles chassis plate are seen at driver door side or between glass and dashboard or behind the engine below wind shield. chassis number is written in chassis of vehicle too. pull up your vehicle using lift and check the right side of the chase and you will see chassis number marked.
open the hood look where the lights are and on the engine bay side there is the headlight plugs going to the light, disconnect them then on the outside of the truck there is 3 bolts that hold the assembly in place, remove them and it should fall out
YOU HAVE WHATS CALLED A TENSIONER PULLEY IN FRONT OF ENGINE , ONE OF TWO PULLEYS THAT ARE SLICK (NO GROOVES). THE TENSIONER PULLEY IS WHAT YOUR AFTER. IT WILL BE ATTACHED TO A SLOTTED BRACKET WITH A BOLT HEAD DIRECTLY BEHIND IT.(LOOKING AT ENGINE FROM FRONT OF VEHICLE ITS USUALLY ON YOUR FAR RIGHT!) FIRST UNLOOSEN BOLT ON FRONT OF PULLEY ABOUT FIVE TURNS , THEN MOVE TO BOLT ON TOP BEHIND PULLEY , AND START UNLOOSENING IT TILL PROPER TENSION IS RELEASED TO SLIDE BELT OVER ALL PULLEYS(USE BELT DIAGRAM UNDER HOOD FOR PROPER INSTALLATION. ONCE BELT IS ON REVERSE STEPS 1 AND 2. TIGHTEN TOP BOLT BEHIND TENSION PULLEY TILL BELT HAS ABOUT A QUARTER INCH PLAY IN IT UP AND DOWN (DON'T OVER TIGHTEN).THEN TIGHTEN FRONT PULLEY BOLT TILL VERY SNUG.YOUR DONE! BELT MAY NEED RE-TIGHTENED AFTER DRIVING A FEW DAYS , BUT YOUR AN EXPERT NOW AND THAT WON'T BE A PROBLEM. HOPE THIS HELPED!
