If the serpentine belt broke the only thing that stopped working would be the alternator and the Power steering pump. Replacing the belt, charging the battery and possibly replacing the alternator should be all there is. if the TIMING BELT broke that's a whole different issue.

SOURCE: need diagram for 2000 dodge dakota serpentine belt

On the 1999 Dakota with the 3.9liter, the fan shroud absolutely DOES NOT have to be removed. Very simple job. Simply use a breaker bar with a 15mm socket on the belt tesioner pulley nut. Using the breaker bar push (as though tightening) the pulley nut...the reaction will be that the tensioner removes tension from the pulley and the entire belt can be removed by easily slipping it toward the front of the vehicle...comes right off. The new belt can go back on in exactly the same manner. By the way the belt routing diagram IS CONVIENENTLY LOCATED between the hood latch and the radiator mounting for simple and quick refernce...one person job, I did removal and installation four times in less than 10 minutes. (why four times? The auto parts store was selling replacement belts that were too long and did not allow the belt tensioner to provide suffiecient tension...I had to try four different manufacturers before the tensioner was adequately tight with room to grow as the belt naturally stretches from use.). I found no stringing around the fan is required because of the way the belt is routed (it doglegs around the main engine pulley which is centered below the fanhousing and then the belt runs from there to the left side of the fan housing...avoiding the fan/fanhousing all-together (sure you can try to go past the fan/fan housing if you so desire...but you dont have to...and besides the space between the pulleys and the fan is ample to allow the belt to pass between with minimal interference or a simple rotation of the fan as you attempt this method. One hint that made my installs easy as pie...the last pulley you put it over should not be a bezeled and ridged pulley or you will needlessly make life difficult for yourself...the last pulley should be the water pump pulley which is a smooth bore and non-ridged pulley (makes you wonder how the belt even stays on it!)...making it easy as pie to slip it right over...as your last act of defiance to that mean old serpentine belt!

SOURCE: serpentine belt broke and the v belt broke. i

Remove both belts again and start the engine--is it now quiet? If not, then there is something mechanically wrong within the engine. If it is quiet, shut the engine off and try to turn each of the pulleys in the normal direction (except the crankshaft at the bottom) while checking for noise, looseness, or hard-to-turn condition. If nothing is obvious, put the serpentine belt back on and run the engine again--any noise? Try the v-belt, does the noise come back? What does the v-belt turn and what drives it? The serpentine belt usually drives everything the car needs. It is strange that both belts would break at the same time.

SOURCE: need diagram for instaalling serpentine belt on

Picture is for the carbureted model but has the same patter as my fuel injected model. It's actually pretty easy to see how it goes. If the pully has groves then the grove side of the belt will fit right in it prefectly. If it's smooth then the back side of the belt with run along it. To loosen the belt tensioner do two things. first in the picture below you will see in the top middle you will see the tensioner. The back of the belt runs along it. You will notice that it looks like a solid peice. loosen the top slighty with i believe a 15mm. After that connect to the pully attached to it and pull back to the passenger side until you can slid the belt off the alternator. put back on in reverse order. really really simple once you do it. good luck

SOURCE: The serpentine belt broke replaced it and i broke

I had this problem, it turned out that A/C compressor had seized and wouldn't turn, because the compressor was stuck it would rip up the new belt- so you can one of two things;

replace the compressor and belt

or
get a shorter serpentine belt and bypass the A/C compressor- there are several sites that show you how to route this.- i did this being a college student, not having A/C isn't that bad

Replaced the serpentine belt but now car won't start


A serpentine belt almost never breaks unless one thing happens---one of the accessories seizes and won't turn.Remove the belt and see which pulley won't turn.The serpentine belt is strong enough to keep the engine from cranking up(better grip on the pulleys compared to the old V-belts).I actually remember a tech 3 stalls down from me sell a customer an engine,only to find the alternator was just seized.(embarassing!)Any one accessory bearing will keep it from cranking up,and I'm sure you'll find it quickly after removing the belt.

I can't see a way for the serpentine belt damaging the camshaft.
Was the engine running after the belt broke ?
Have you checked the computer for trouble codes ?

My serpentine belt broke and went under my timing belt and i think the timing is off how do i get it back to the proper timing


First, you forgot to mention which engine your vehicle is equipped with (2.4L or 3.0L .... the 3.3L and 3.8L engines are chain-driven). This is really "nice-to-know" information if you want accurate information on how to fix it. Then, I have a little trouble believing that the serpentine belt could go under the timing belt unless there is some severe damage to the timing belt covers.

I have a 1992 Subaru Legacy Wagon.Told I need to replace the Serpentine Belt.If the belt should break before I have it changed,will the vehicle still operate?


Depends on which belt - if it's the timing belt, no, the engine will no longer run, and if you have interference engine, you can ruin your engine. If it's the power steering belt, yes, you will just loose power steering. If it's the alternator belt, yes, for a while, until your battery runs out of power. If it's the air conditioning belt, yes, the car will run.

The serpentine belt broke on my2002 subaru outback


There is a distinct possibilty there is engine damage caused when the belt broke. It is best not to turn the engine at all once this happens. Sometimes you can be lucky and there be no damage. Let's hope that's so in your case. These belts are supposed to be replaced every 100,000km.

A belt which is attached to a fan near the front of the 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country, right above the headlights under the hood, has broke. When the belt snapped I noticed that it became difficult to turn...


Not sure what engine you have, but my guess is it's a serpentine style belt that drives everything, including your water pump and power steering, and alternator as well as AC, all in one, that has broke. NO !! do not run the engine at all with that off, or you will ruin it, if damage hasn't been done already. Keep fingers crossed, and get that new belt on before you even put the key in the ignition.

Here is a link to a set of videos about how to replace your serpentine belt. http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to/video/how-to-change-a-serpentine-belt-on-your-car-39904/

It's important to know the routing of the new belt when you replace it. There should be a routing diagram in the engine compartment near the top of the radiator. If you don't see one, you can use this diagram as a guide...
