2010 Dodge Grand Caravan - Easy fix?

how to change serpintine belt the easy way

Easy way ? Pay someone to do it while you set in the waiting room drinking coffee.


If you insist on doing it yourself get a serpentine tensioner wrench at Harbor freight.

Amazon has them also.

if doing it yourself, at least take good pictures or make a drawing of how the belt goes

I have found allpar.com to have helpful info about Chrysler products like my Plymouth and now Chrysler minivan. There’s a minivan discussion group.

On mine, a 1/2" drive breaker bar fits into the tensioner. Lever it to remove the tension and the slip off the belt. A belt routing diagram is on a sticker under the hood…

agreed, yet I’ve know people who have trouble with such diagrams unless each circle is in exactly the right place relative to the other circles

On my 2005 T&C, a breaker or ratchet won’t fit. I had to get the tensioner wrench.
