I just did this on a 1994 caravan with the 3.3 litre - should be roughly the same the factory service manual does not even addres the issue, not at least that I could find To change the tensioner, do the following: remove the serpentine belt remove the alternator bolts and move the alternator out of the way - DISCONECT THE BATTERY FIRST when the bolts are out of the alternator, you can move the alternator around and unhook the wiring to it - it is easier to do it this way You can then put the alternator out of the way this exposes the back side of the tensioner and you can get at it with a 15mm open end wrench; you cannot really see it but you can do it by feel. it is held on with one nut on the stud on he back side of the tensioner assembly and located by a pin so it can only go on one way. Damn near imposible to do with the alternator in place but a relative piece of cake with the alternator moved out of the way
