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.

Replace the belt by fitting it around the pulleys and lastly loosening the tension with the tensioner/idler pulley to allow the belt to fit over the last pulley. . Attach a 15mm socket or wrench to the bolt attaching the tensioner pulley. . On all 3.0L (OHV) engines, rotate the drive belt tensioner clockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys. . On 3.0L (DOHC) engines, rotate the tensioner counterclockwise to relieve belt tension and slide the belt off the pulleys. (MORE)
Where can you find the online diagram of the route of a serpentine belt for a Dodge 4.7L truck engine?
you don't need one. look at your old belt before you take it off, or look at the pulleys. the ones with a smooth surface get the back of the belt, the ones that are ribbed get the ribbed part of the belt. Answer You're gonna hate me for this. You don't. Auto manufacturers are fighting to keep some… information out of independent repair shops, and the information these shops do have costs a hell of a lot to keep. Auto makers aren't about to let peons like you and me in on such top secret details such as how to replace a radio. But, in truth........ head to your nearest parts house, and as them to check the book catalog. Sometimes, Gates and Goodyear put belt routing in there, just to help folks out. If that doesn't work, I would suggest putting on your happy face, and checking with shops to see if they'd help you out. When I wrenched, I was always happy to help a do-it-yourselfer, because I knew that if they ever needed help, they'd come to me. That psychology can work for you, to. (MORE)
Hello,Just to let you know an 01 stratus r/t does-not have a serpentine belt; it has a drive belt and 2 others belts as well. I also have an 01 stratus r/t and when I went to replace i had found this out, basically if you have air,which most strat's do I believe its 2 to 3 belts you will need to cha…nge. also little heads up about this car, since you have r/t I'm assuming you have 3.0li engine, so if you plan to change timing belt, be sure to also change your water-pump at same time as it is driven off the timing belt, also one last thing, OUR cars are known to break the motor mount that is located right above belts I would highly recommend changing that as well, you will feel much more stable shifts smother idling .... Good luck (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 . Go to Advance Auto Parts. They can print a belt routing illustration for you.
Answer . \nSHOULD BE ON THE FRONT MOLDING UNDER THE HOOD....WHERE IT SAYS WHAT SIZE ENGINE YOU HAVE
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. (MORE)
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 . I've only done it on a 3 L so I don't know little details of other engines, but in order to change it on a 3L you have to remove all the belts, undo the passenger-side motor mount, remove the timing cover and loosen the timing belt tension idler, replace the belt and reassemble everythi…ng.

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)

Serpentine Belt Routing Diagrams Usually, most vehicles have a decal [or sticker of some sort] inside the engine compartment , or the underside of the hood. This label shows the pulleys and the routing of the belt. Carefully read [and if covered with oil and grime, clean all hard to read labels… with a shop towel or rag] all labels inside your engine compartment until you've found the right one. IF for some reason there is not a label in your vehicle, I have used one or more of the following : . Carefully study your Owner's/Operator's Manual [Should be in the glove box, or your vehicle file folder in the house]. Sometimes a diagram is in your manual. . Look at another vehicle like yours [neighbor's, friend's, or a stranger's in a parking lot. Just ask someone with the same vehicle. Most folks will be willing to help you by allowing you to look at and copy their vehicle label. . Be sure to carefully visually record in detail [digital camera or with a pad and pencil] everything on that label . Do NOT try to do it from memory! Record it visually. . If you cannot find another such vehicle through friends, relatives, or in a parking lot, then try the used car lot at the dealer for your vehicle. If you explain the situation to one of the sales people, they will usually allow you to access under the hood of a similar vehicle to get that info. If they don't have a vehicle idential to yours on the lot, and, if you have with you the engine identification info, they may know of another vehicle on their lot that uses the same belt routing pattern. . Another place I have found such info is in my local library. Often it will have the necessary repair manual [even if a generic manual rather than by the vehicle manufacturer] that will provide the necessary info. (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)
Answer . if you have this or know of a link please email me firstname.lastname@example.org \I have a manual but it doesnt show this one there is a tensioner as well as idler it has a/c . and if you could post the diagram here because not every one wants to email some one just to get an answer :)
Answer . Call around to your local parts stores. Typically they have this info on hand. And if not they will have a manual for your make.
Answer . should be on the hood look up after you open it or by the radiator on the area were your emmisions placard is installed
\n15/32 wrech on tensioner at water pump pully pull towards you will releave tension replace fopllowing diagram lots of muscle recomend cheater bar
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)
I found this picture when I was having problems getting my fan belt back on my dodge. I have an '04 Dodge Ram 1500. It worked, after fighting with it for over an hour I found this picture and had it done in a few minutes. See related link below:. Tips for installing serpentine belts: If you can't f…ind a routing diagram under your hood anywhere, draw one of your own before removing the belt. Keep in mind that there is only 1 correct way that the belt will fit, and that the grooved pulleys will only contact the grooved side of the belt (which is the inside), and the smooth pulleys will only contact the smooth side of the belt.

Yes, there is a diagram for a 1995 Dodge Spirit Serpentine BeltDiagram. It is found in the maintenance manual to the car.
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.
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.
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.
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.
There should be one on the fan housing, right when you open the hood. Or this: http://www.2carpros.com/forum/automotive_pictures/61395_Graphic_96.jpg.
Look around under the hood. Look on the fenders and around the radiator for a tag that shows it...
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.
If you look under the hood on the passenger side near the belt, there is a diagram near the belt location.
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.
Is the diagram on radiator support gone? Try an auto parts store they may have one a dealer will have one. Or do like I do. The back side (smooth side) of the belt will always go on a smooth pulley & ribbed will go on groved pulleys. Mark on a PC of paper the position on each pulley & which are groo…ve-smooth. Takes a few min to figure out but it will work, (MORE)
well for $14.00 OR SO U CAN GO ON ALLDATADIY.COM AND GET A YEARLY SUBSCRIPTION FOR YOUR EXACY VEHICLE. BECAUSE THE INFORMATION U ARE GIVING IS NOT SPECIFIC ENOUGH. YOU NEED WHAT KIND OF DODGE IT IS AND WHAT THE ENGINE VIN CODE IS SO YOU CAN DETERMINE EXACTLEY WHAT 5.7L ENGINE YOU HAVE.
Some vehicles have a sticker under the hood either on the bottom side of the hood or somewhere on the fenders or front clip. If not, try asking the local dealer, most could provide one, usually no charge via printout or perhaps they would e-mail to you.
It should be on a sticker under your hood. The belt diagram is very easy for the optra, just draw it before you remove the belt. If you already removed it and are stuck, call the dealer they will print off a diagram for free
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.
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)

No, the timing belt ( or chain on some engines ) drives the cam shaft (s). The serpentine belt drives the alternator, air conditioning, power steering, etc. No, the timing belt ( or chain on some engines ) drives the cam shaft (s).
