How do you change a serpentine belt on a 1999 Dodge Caravan SE 6cyl 3.8?

Pull upon the belt and it will show you which way the idler pulley has to go to relieve pressure on the belt. Then pry it with a 15 mm wrench to relieve pressure and there should be a schematic under the hood to tell you how to route the belt. If it isn't there draw a schematic before you take the belt off. Don't rely on memory.

I put a ratcheting cargo strap on the 15mm wrench and secured the other end so as to pull the tensioner enough to easily slip the belt into place with both hands.
