I have a 1999 Caravan with a 3.0 liter motor. This motor has an additional belt that I believe drives the ac compressor. The idler pulley is making noise. What is the easiest way to change that pulley

simple grab a 13 mm wrench or rachet loosen the bolt facing the frame, then grb a rachet with a 13mm socket and long extension and loosen the bolt just behind the pulley (facing upwards) until the belt can be removed then take the other bolt you loosened all the wy out and remove the pulley, then install the new pulley and but the bolt facing the frame has to be loosly in the threads put the belt back on nd adjust the tightness of the belt to manuefacturers specs (requires tensioner gauge) or do it by fell should be snug, then snug the other bolt back up.
