If you are talking about the large belt that goes around the alternator, water pump and ac compressor( Serpentine belt). There is a pulley with grooves in it on the right side of the motor (passenger side). This pulley will move to give you some slack to put the belt on. You will need a 15mm socket to move the pulley and a long rachet or something you can put over your rachet to give you leverage. I like to working from under the motor, it give me more area to push. Thread the belt around the pulleys and leave the crank shaft pulley for last. Put your socket and rachet on the moveable pulley. (If working under the van, push toward the fender). You will see the belt loosen up. Start to put the belt on the crank shaft pulley. After you get the belt around the crank shaft pulley, check for correct alignment of the belt. Thanks for the info, but I don't like working under the vehicle and new installation is a snap from above by loosening the bottom bolt and removing the top bolt on the alternator. This allows the alternator to swing in just enough to slip the belt over the tensioner ( you still need to rotate the tensioner in as instructed above ). I also found the diagram for the serpentine belt routing on the top of the radiator bracket.
