1998 Dodge Avenger Repair Question
Mileage: 160,000 miles.
Whats the easiest way to change the air compressor belt on a 1998 Dodge Avenger?
You didn't bother to list the engine size. The tensioner is either spring-loaded or has a lock nut on the side and a bolt that must be loosened to allow the pulley to drop down. Use a wrench or 1/2" drive breaker bar to pivot the spring-loaded pulley. Loosen the pull-bolt about a half inch, then loosen the lock nut in the center of the tensioner pulley and let it fall down, install the belt, then run the pull-bolt back up to tighten that type of tensioner pulley.
