I am in the process of replacing the timing belt on my daughter's 98 Stratus. The book says that there is a hole to place a small drill bit or allen wrench in after removing the tension from the pulley. There is no hole. Also I had to remove the tensioner to get the rear timing case cover off. I can't figure out how to get the tentioner pulley assembly properly remounted so that there is actually tention on the pulley. There is a notch in the pulley mount that appears to be for the straight part of the spring that protrudes from the back of the assembly but I can't figure out how to properly mount the pulley so it has tension on it.
