Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan

Replacement of serpentine belt

I think I need to replace the serpentine belt on my 2005 dodge caravan. There is a quiet squeal coming from the belt area. I live in Phoenix so it will be about 110 degrees while I am attempting this repair therefore I need to have a somewhat step by step instruction and I would love any tricks of the trade suggestions. Thanks, Stacy

First you will need a 3/8 or a 15mm wrench to take the tension off the belt.

The only trouble spots will be around the a/c compressor, it is real close to the frame and it sometimes a pain to get off and on.

Other then that, it shouldn't take you but about 15 minutes to change it out. Keep the old one for a spare in case of an emergency

2002 dodge grand caravan sport belt squeals when it rains


The serpentine belt tensioner is a spring loaded device that pulls the right amount of pressure to keep the belt for falling off, as well slipping.

This unit has a short life span, that of the belt, and in most cases it is recommended that it should be replaced at the same time as the belt.

I am 90% sure this is the issue.

I hope this helps

Belt idler pully or tensioner pully maybe . Pull the serpentine belt off an see if the noise goes away . Just running the engine for a second or two you should be able to tell , an this will not hurt anything .

!991 Olds 88...can I replace with a shorter serpentine belt?


Unplug wires going to the compressor, and let it freewheel, if it's not noisy in that mode. A/C compressor won't kick in if not connected. A lot less hassle than going the other way.
