locate the "tensioner" pulley, on the schematic that is under your hood, on top of the radiator. Then place a socket on the bolt head in the middle of that pulley, and with a breaker bar, pull the entire pulley towards the front of the van, releasing the tension, and letting the belt slip off easily…. Repeat this procedure once you have the new belt routed around most of the pulleys properly and slip it over the tensioner pulley last. Double check belt alignment on all pulleys, make sure it is well tensioned, then start your van and let it idle about 5 to 10 seconds, shut it off, and recheck the belt alignment and tension. If all looks well, then close the hood and call it a job well done. (MORE)
\n Answer \n. \nYou'll need to go to your local car parts dealer and ask them for a printout for your serpentine belt route. You'll need to know the year and type of car you have. Also, you'll need to know the size of your engine.\n. \n New Answer Headline \n. \nI just changed mine on a… 96 Caravan 3.8L. The diagram was on the flat painted area between the radiator and grill, facing up. (MORE)
It should have a diagram under the hood somewhere. Look somwhere around where the hood latch is, Should have a sticker somewhere under the hood. Under the hood is a diagram. If not try Autozone they usually have manual you can look at.
It should be on the fan shroud. If not, it is in the owners manual/ If yoou don't have one, go to a used car lot and find a like car and draw a schematic.
For a 1999 Dodge Caravan 3.3 L I have to use a 15mm open/closed end wrench on the tensioner pulley. Use the closed end of the 15mm and pull toward you and use the end of a crescent wrench to use for additional torque. You can slip the belt over the fixed pulley (not the tensioner pulley). Give yours…elf more room by not using the hood bar and use instead a broomstick on the right side to prop the hood open. I recommend a goodyear gator belt too. Good Luck, you'll need it with a caravan. (MORE)
im assuming you have the diagram on the hood. Run the belt in the proper sequence. you will leave getting it under the tensioner for last. take the top bolt out of the alternator and just loosen the bottom one. alternator will pivot just a little,but you need all you can get with these cars. now for…ce the tensioner up with a bar and slide the belt under it. secure alternator and your done. i like to put a wrench on crank pully and rotate engine by hand just to check belt alignment.

First draw a map of the pulley wheels then draw the belt routing. You need a good quality extra long 15 mm combo wrench (snap on ) to be honest this belt can be a toughie if you are not a technician. It has a tight spring tensioner, and is tough on the hands. Also, replace the tensioner around 80,00…0 miles as they wear and tend to throw the belt off. Pull on auto tensioner with long 15mm wrench until the belt loosens. Slip belt over pulley, reverse procedure, make sure the belt is in all the grooves. (MORE)
What you need is a ratchet 15mm socket. Losen the idler then slide off the serpentine belt off. There should be a diagram for routing the belt if not draw a diagram before removing it. Replace the serpentine belt crank it 2 or 3 times but don't start the engine. The 4th time start the engine this ti…me the as the engine is idling eyeball the belt agaisnt the tensioner idler and crank pulley make sure the serpentine is algined. A Note: Make sure that you have identified the tensioner pulley as apposed to the idler pulley. With the 15mm socket on the tensioner pulley's bolt, rotate it clockwise and this will release the tension on the belt, or in the case of installing a new serpentine belt, allow you to get it where it belongs. This is the case on my 1997 Dodge Caravan, and probably other year makes. Best of luck- Bryan 1993 Dodge Grand Caravan: Rotating the tensioner pulley's bolt clockwise was the way to replace my belt. By the way, the tensioner pulley in my van was one of the smaller ones in the middle of the whole system, attached to a silver arm coming off the tensioner. Good luck... (MORE)
Answer . \nSHOULD BE ON THE FRONT MOLDING UNDER THE HOOD....WHERE IT SAYS WHAT SIZE ENGINE YOU HAVE
Answer . diagram of ur belt should be right under ur hood..should be a sticker there showning how the belt should fit
Answer I found that when I needed to change my belt I also had to change the belt tensionor. I also had to get a special tool from my local parts store that would connect on to the tensionor to loosen the tension which then allowed me to remove the belt. The part was around 10-15 bucks I think. …In many cases you can just pry on one of the idlers with a crowbar. Take note of belt routing before it comes off though or make sure you have a diagram.

Answer . \nTypically, one would draw a diagram before dissassembling. Usually there is a sticker under the hood that shows it. A parts store or dealer may assist you otherwise.
Answer . \nIf you have a 1.9 liter engine:\n. \nIf you look down at the belt area, you will see a pully toward the front of the car that looks like it's attached to an arm. That is the tensioner pully. The tensioner is spring loaded. If you look at the arm of the tensioner there should be a squ…are hole in it to insert a socket wrench or a breaker bar/pull handle to use as a lever to remove the tension from the belt. If there is no hle, then use a wrench(possibly 15mm) on the bolt head of the pully itself as your lever. As you hold the tensioner out of the way, unloop the old belt. Pay attention to the routing, so you can reinstall the new one correctly. Then, you route the new one in and again use your lever to move the tensioner so you can get the belt over the last pully. I usually put it over the alternator last. Use a light to make sure the belt is fully on all 5 grooves of every single pulley before you start the car. (MORE)

Answer . There should be one on a panel under the hood of your car. Typically it sits above your radiator or in that area. If not then look for the tensioner pulley. I could not tell you for sure if it has a tensioner pulley or a manual tensioner but look at each one of your pulleys(the wheels t…hat are mounted to your alternator, engine, power steering pump, etc.) and try to see if one of them looks like it is mounted to an arm that could hinge. If so take a rench and see if the pulley moves up or down, or side-to-side when you apply pressure to the wrench. If it does, that is your tensioner. Simply get your belt started on all of the other pulleys and then apply pressure to the tensioner pulley until it is positioned in such away that allows you to slide the serpentine belt onto it. But just in case, before doing all of this, check to see if something caused your belt to break. Try to spin each pulley by hand and see if any are wobbly or stuck. Hope this helps. \n. \nKyle (MORE)
Answer . on a 3.0, get a serptine tool at autozone for $25 or a wrench/socket with a loooong handle to fit the tension pulley. place the tool on the bolt on the tension pulley and pull toward you. you will then have enough slack to complete the routing of the belt. i left the belt off the idler p…ulley, then pulled the wrench, and was able to slip the belt behind the idler pulley. with the right tools, and some flexible arms, it's a 15 min job. you may have to move a couple of electrical wires out of the way to pull the wrench far enough down. Remember, the bolt is just there for you to get a grip on the tension pulley, it's not to be tightend/untightened.. It would probably matter witch engine you have in the Caravan. Maybe on the radiator support or the front of the engine close to the belt area there should be a diagram. If there is no diagram go to the library or maybe the internet. First find out what engine you have like a 2.5L 4 cylindar or a 3.0,3.3,or 3.8L V-6. Find the engine size and take the information to the library or internet and look. Also at almost all parts stores they would have a "Chiltons" manual with the routing of the belt in the manual. (MORE)

Answer . \nUsually right there under the hood. If not, get a motor manual for same vehicle.
Answer . There is usually a sticker with the belt diagram located on the top radiator support. There is usually a sticker for the evaporative hose diagram as well. This is where they usually are. With time and heat they may have been peeled loose. Your local library usually has auto repair manuals,… or stop at an auto supply store and see if they have the diagram. Once you have the diagram of how th ebelt goes on, it is simplay a case of looping the belt over every pulley except the alternator, and then using a ratchet and extension, insert the extension into the hole in the front of the idler pulley and compressing the tension, looping the belt over the alternator pulley then leave the tension from the idler pulley take up the slack of the belt. Note you won't have a lot of slack to play with when you have the belt over all the pulleys and it 'almost" goes over the pulley on the alternator. By compressing the idler pulley, this gives you just enough slack on the belt to slip it over the pulley. Then when you release the idler pulley the belt will get tight. Make sure when you place the belt over the pulleys that you have the belt centered on all the pulleys otherwise the belt will either come off or you won't be able to get the belt over the last pulley. You need a 15 mm box wrench to put on the tensioner pulley. Because it is hard to pull on this wrench and slip the belt on, I'd suggest using an old serpentine belt, put one loop on the end of the wrench and the other loop around your body. Then pull the wrench bye leaning back with your body while slipping the new belt on. I would not use a 15 mm socket because it gets wedged between the pulley and the frame of the car and is very hard to remove. I also put the belt over every pulley except for the idler pulley. then when pulling back on the box wrench, I slip the belt under the idler pulley. I've used this technique several times after getting frustrated trying methods. Your body can put a lot of leverage on that 15 mm box wrench when using the old serpentine belt wrapped around your torso. Good luck (MORE)

Answer . I have a grand caravan, with a 3.8l engine. The s-belt slipped off on my way to work, and I went to put pressure on the tensioner, and the bolt snapped in half. I drove the van up on ramps, and was able to access the 15mm nut on the back of the tensioner. I went to O'Riley auto parts… and they showed me the replacment, and then it was a snap. I used a 3/8" ratchet with the 15mm socket and two 3" extensions. It came right off, and the other one went on easily. I had a 2x2 piece of wood that I used to help hold the tensioner in place, while I worked from the back side. (MORE)

how do i install a ltinator belt on a 1989 dodge dynasty I had the parts store print out a diagram but then when I was actually putting it on, I found the diagram on the engine toward the front. One suggestion I'd like to make. I found it easier to put the belt on so it was between the tensioner… and the engine at first. Then when I was holding the tensioner with one hand it was easier to slip the belt toward me with the other rather than dealing with pulling the belt up and over. (MORE)
http://tech.bentleypublishers.com/servlet/JiveServlet/download/73-16156-142538-1636/Alternator%20drive%20belt,replacing%20(M62).pdf Here is a helpful link on the routing diagram. But it is called a drive belt instead of the s belt or serpentine belt.
Study the belt diagram and also the way the old belt was put on, use a socket (16mm usually) and a breaker bar to pull the tensioner pulley down, releasing tension on the belt causing it to be able to slip right off. Slide the old belt off and weave the new belt in to place while still holding the t…ensioner down. When it place put the tension back on the pulley by moving the breaker bar the opposite way you pulled it to release tension, causing the pulley back in to place and making the belt fit tightly. Start the vehicle and make sure it stays in place and functions properly. (MORE)
Such diagrams are usually posted on a sticker somewhere under the hood, sometimes in the auto's manual, otherwise check with your local fast parts store, like auto zone, o'rielly's or advantage, they are usually very helpful.
Almost every vehicle has a placard under the hood somewhere with a diagram of the belt routing.
This should be on a sticker under the hood of the car, or in the owners manual, or available from your local auto parts store at no charge.
The best place to review a 2000 Suzuki Esteem serpentine beltinstallation diagram is on the manufacturer website. The diagramcan also be reviewed in the parts directory?Ã¦at a local auto partsstore.
When you get your new belt, ask the sales people to print the diagram for you. Most of the stores have access (such as AutoZone). I just rerplaced mine with my son and it wasn't bad at all (end at the belt tensioner). Other than that, have fun!
Loosen the tensioning pulley and install new belt. There should be a routing diagram in engine compartment or on hood.
look under the hood of the car or in your owners manual, if neither place go to the Chevy dealer and see the parts man and he can print it out for you.
it should automaticly tighten when you release the tensioner pulley after putting the new belt on. if it does not tighten 1 of 2 things happened 1). you didnt run the belt the right way 2). tensioner assembly is faulted and needs to be replaced.
You can go to Autozone.com. They have online manuals you can view for free, you just have to enter the make and model of the vehicle you are inquiring about You can go to Autozone.com. They have online manuals you can view for free, you just have to enter the make and model of the vehicle you are …inquiring about They only have generic charts just showing pulleys and lines with no parts to relate to, and not in any way similar to the relationship of the parts on the engine. At least that was the case with my '90 Suburban. Just single lines and simple circles - nothing more It was impossible to relate the cryptic diagrams to the real world and I ain't no dumy. (MORE)
Go to autozone.com, select your make/model and they offer online service manuals. In there, you will find diagrams for serpentine belt routing.
Look around under the hood. Look on the fenders and around the radiator for a tag that shows it...
You need a 1/2" breaker bar or ratchet handle, place in the appropriate slot in the belt tensioner, and pull or push to release the tension. The diagram is under the hood for proper replacement.
Use a long socket to untorque the tensioner pulley. Put the new belt on in the pattern that the old belt was previously on. Make sure it is lines up in all the pulleys completely. Let the socket go back into the torqued position then take it off. close the hood and start the vehicle.
Normally there is (or was) a diagram under the hood - looks like a "sticker".OR - You could buy a "service manual" - Clymer or Chiltons print them - from Advance/Auto Zone/Oreillys/etc. for the vehicle.$20 more or less and a good source of info.
Open hood, look on the frame in front of the radiator or on the hood itself. Should be a diagram w/ air conditioning and w/out.
On top of the radiator front middle area there should be a diagram right behind the hood latch
Usually there is a service sticker located on top of the radiator showing how to install the belt with or without ac.
Definitely NOT a job for the amateur. Very tricky and you really have to get the manual to learn how to do it. (personally, I wouldn't own ANY vehicle without getting the manual for it anyway)

Regardless of what year your Caravan is, it is extremely difficult to replace a serpentine belt w/o a serpentine untensioner tool. This is a thin, long handle with a socket on the end that sticks out at 90 degrees of the handle. The socket slips onto the bolt-head of the tension-er pulley. Once the …serpentine belt is threaded around all the other pulleys you put the untensioner tool on the tension-er pulley bolt and pull (or push) to achieve slack in the serpentine belt and slip it on the tension-er pulley.

slacken tensioner with a long wrench, then slip belt off. Replace opposite way. Takes about 15 minutes.
