look under the hood for a 3"x4" sticker that show the diagram of the belt routing. If you can't find it you will need a book

My 2000 130 had the same problem. I took it back to the shop and it was determined that my belt needed replaced. It is perfect now. I neglected to ask how it could be the belt considering the fact that it didn't squeek before the alternator died.

no need for battery disconnect. i believe it is the water pump/alternator batter. simplehow to change alternator beltThat is fairly easy I had the same problem it took me a while hopefully my help will take you less time. ok first off you should already know to disconnect the neg. on your battery. there are two bolts one is located on the top right, and one at the bottem left losen these two bolts and that should let your alternator slide forward, next you will find two pulleys on one rod next to the front right tire turn your alternator belt where the groves are facing up toward the engine and use a large crescent wrench to turn the front pulley turn un till half the belt is be hind the belt on the first pulley then all you need to do is run the belt up to the engine pulley and then around your alternator tighten the alternator back down and then reconecct your battery and drive away

PROBABLY ISNT MUCH DIFFERENT THEN A 1995. GET YOURSELF A LONG 15MM RENCH AND LOSEN THE TOP BOLT OF THE ALTERNATOR YOU CAN SEE IT RIGHT BEHIND THE TIMEING BELT COVER. NOW JACK UP THE CAR , REMOVE THE TIRE AND CRAWL UNDERNEATH. LOSEN UP THE BOLT ON THE BOTTOM OF THE ALTERNATOR. HERE COMES THE FUN PART. ON THE BACK PART OF THE TOP ALTERNATOR BRACKET IS A TENSIONING BOLT, AND IF DODGE HASNT CHANGED THE SIZE ITS A 13MM. YOU HAVE TO GET YOUR ARM BACK HEHIND THERE AND WITH A 13MM ON A RATCHET WRENCH LOSEN THE TENSIONER UNTIL YOU CAN PUSH THE ALTERNATOR FORWARD ENOUGH TO GET THE BELT OFF OF THE CRANK SHAFT PULLY. REPLACE THE SAME WAY YOU TOOK IT OFF.

# Notice which pulleys the alternator belt rides on. # Remove the alternator's adjustment bolt. # Remove the alternator's pivot bolt. # Remove the alternator. # Before you can put on the new belt, you probably will have to remove someother belts which means loosening other adjustment and pivot bolts. # Place the new alternator belt on the pulleys you took note of earlier. # Put the alternator back on. # Making sure to tighten all the bolts you loosened earlier. All belts should only deflect 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Longer belts deflect more than shorter belts.

Remove Right front tire then remove the fender well and the battery and air cleaner on the other side. remove the radiator after you remove the left fan move the right one aside. Now You can get to the bolts. you will need three extensions to go behind the ex.manfold to get the back bolt out. The alternator will only come out the top. It took me 5 hr. to get it off 3 hr to put it back together on My 1994 Northstar. the shop rebuilt it for $90.00. I later found the alternator at rockauto.com. Remove Right front tire then remove the fender well and the battery is how I replace the belt.
