First, remove the broken belt very carefully. Then, prepare your work\015\012area. Having the right tools are critical. A serpentine belt\015\012remover/adjuster, Mopar Part #23-w3221 can really help save you time.\015\012It is a silver plier-looking tool with a gold tip that has a solid\015\012microprocessor embedded into the base.

Now, jack up the front end with tire jacks and stablizers. Make\015\012sure your battery is fully disconnected. Take your spare key, and\015\012insert into the lip of the fuse box and twist 1/3 turn to the left. Now\015\012press hard, forcing the top to pop. Wash out the air cleaner while your\015\012at it or you may wish you had. Dust in a power converter steering box\015\012modulator rack box is a no no

Ok, pop a couple of beers, chug one and sip the other. At this\015\012point you will either start getting sleepy or creepy. Pop a couple more\015\012beers, power drain these down your esophogus and hopefully the creepy\015\012thing will fade quickly

Install the belt according to the package schematic, but without\015\012adding the d-clip retainer ring supplied. You may need to bend the\015\012alignment washer 6-7 degrees south of the ring equator balance\015\012indicator. Once the belt is loosely hung on the balance jam level bar,\015\012take up about 34mm of slack. More or less, and you can kiss the new\015\012belt goodbye.\015\012
\015\012Pop the last two beers of the six pack, and make it a day.

I would also recommend to replace the timing belt adjuster as I have\015\012them seen also lose hydraulic pressure after compressing it in a vice\015\012and the belt slipping a tooth or two off the timing. You will probably\015\012find there will a transfer pipe across that travels across the lenght\015\012of the V6 valley, have a look into this as there is usally a BIG o'ring\015\012on the transfer tube that sits in the back of the water pump plate on\015\012the engine, make sure you replace that also as I have seen that leak\015\012also smile.gif
\015\012Just incase you are unsure mate, I have attached a pic for you with a\015\012bit of info about your timing belt, they are marked in a direction of\015\012travel, make sure this is put on the correct way, I have coloured the\015\012belt in 2 shades of colour, you MUST have the PINK section tight\015\012all the way around between both cam shaft pulleys around the crank\015\012pulley and back to the bottom of the idler pulley and I mean tight, no\015\012slop or belt deflection at all, you can use your spanner to help roll\015\012the cam pulley a few mm forward to get it really tight but also must\015\012line up to the timing marks, these are usally marked on your tappet\015\012covers but I see yours are marked on your timing case, the BLUE section\015\012is where you should only have the belt loose as this is where all the\015\012rest of the belt tension is achieved with the belt tension, if you\015\012don't think it is tight enough try it a few times ie take the belt off\015\012and try it a few times before you pull the lynch pin out on your belt\015\012tensioner as trust me they don't like to be compressed too often.
