1. Using a 15 mm wrench place it on the pulley bolt of the tensioner pulley 2. Pull the pulley toward the front of the vehicle. 3. The belt will slacken then slide the belt to the side and remove 4. Replace the new belt starting at the bottom crankshaft pulley 5. Slide belt over each pulley in a counter-clockwise rotation excepting the idler pulley 6. After the belt is around all pulleys except the idler use the 15mm wrench to pull the tensioner pulley forward and slide the belt under the idler pulley and release slowly 7. The belt should go a. Under the crank pulley b. Up inside the water pump pulley c. Out around the outside of the air conditioner compressor pulley d. Under the idler pulley (this is the last pulley to put belt on) e. Across up and around the alternator pulley f. Down around the power steering pulley g. Up over the tensioner pulley h. Down under the crank pulley Good Luck and Safe Knuckles P.s. obscenities are optional i found a picture of the diagram fan belthes the web sit ( http://images.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=http://www.2carpros.com/forum/automotive_pictures/30961_38000belt_1.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.2carpros.com/forum/1994-plymouth-voyager-awd-van-belt-diagram-vt29503.html&usg=__tddNYKmPJbCrU07Ig13DTeL-ooQ=&h=298&w=450&sz=35&hl=en&start=17&um=1&tbnid=LUy7UhqTIcqsRM:&tbnh=84&tbnw=127&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dchysler%2B1998%2Bvan%2Bfan%2Bbelt%2Bpictures%2Bdiagrams%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26sa%3DG%26um%3D1 )
