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 yourself 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.

How do you install a serpentine belt on a 1993 doge caravan?

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.

To relieve serpentine belt tension you need to use a Rachet arm or Breaker bar, the longer the better. (Many parts stores, such as Auto Zone will let you use their special tool made just for this purpose.) Fit the 3/8 square drive tip into a hole in the bracket which is attached to the Tension pulley. Once you insert the drive tip into the matching hole, simply turn the ratchet or breaker bar until the pulley rotates and releases the tension.
