Belt fit fine and two weeks later, I have no issues to report. Visually it seems like a quality part. Yes, as one reviewer put it, clearances are tight which makes installation just a skotch tricky. As far as the tensioner is concerned, in my 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, it has a cast extension that fits a 3/4" open end wrench. I used a scrap 2x4 to push the end of the wrench upward and hold it in place (releasing the tensioner) while I installed the belt. Be careful to ensure that the belt is mating correctly with each of the accessory pulleys prior to restoring the tensioner. Also check the idler(s) and replace any that are worn as part of this procedure.

Regarding the reviewer who suffered a belt failure after only 5 days, I would guess that either the belt was installed incorrectly (inexcusable if installed by even the least competent installer) or one of the accessories seized and caused premature failure due to excessive friction. In fact, if this was replaced due to failure of the existing belt (as opposed to routine maintenance), I would definitely be checking each component in the train.

Wrong Length for Dodge Caravan

Took off OEM Mopar belt. Compared length to this belt. Thought the Dayco was longer than old belt with 100K miles on it. Thought maybe it was just the way I stretch it...Read complete review

Took off OEM Mopar belt. Compared length to this belt. Thought the Dayco was longer than old belt with 100K miles on it. Thought maybe it was just the way I stretch it to compare.
Installed the belt. Noticed the position of the tensioner compared to the stops/notches in the tensioner mount.
With the old belt, I still had about 50% of the tensioner movement remaining. With this new belt, only have about 25% of movement remaining. Wonder what happens after break in period??? Probably be loose enough to take out some bearings in the pumps....Which then means parts and another new belt. (good for people selling parts) Maybe why some reviewers say this belt only lasts 6 months!!! Once it wears in, the tensioner is done.
Anyway, Found a notice from AC Delco that says they came out with a new belt specifically for the Dodge 3.3L and 3.8L engines which is 822 lenght rather than 825 length. AC Delco comments that 822 is the exact fit for the OEM part.
Bottom line, I am rejecting this part as soon as I can find the proper size.

    replaced loud belt with the dayco belt and within a day the belt began to melt into pulleys. Tried gates green stripe and solved issues. I think the dayco belt was too far into pulley grooves

          Comments about Dayco Poly Rib Poly Rib Belt:

          I buy Dayco W-rib belts whenever I can. It has succeeded their polycog design and is nice and quiet. You won't go wrong with this belt. Some notes: 1. Check belt wear with a depth gauge. Replace when the test tool sits flush in any of the Vs. Belts don't crack like they used to. 2. Always replace the tensioner at the same time (not just the tensioner pulley). Yes, do it. It's best for everyone - new spring, new tensioner bearing, new pulley bearing. 3. On the Chrysler 01-07 minivans, also replace the alternator pulley. It's got a clutch inside and it is a maintenance item. Every one of these vans I touch needs it replaced. If you put your van in drive and you can hear a quiet grumble grumble sound like a Chuck E Cheese ticket eater machine coming through the lower dash, you need to replace this pulley. You will need to remove the alternator and use a Lisle 57650 or equivalent, or just have your shop do it. Anyways... great belt. The other people's comments about breakage won't tell you that they probably did have a pulley problem or the mechanic didn't seat the belt properly and so it shredded - they'll always blame the belt rather than fess up.

                Junk - this only lasted 6 months and 3500 miles before it needed to be replaced. I went through all of the pulleys, idlers,etc thinking something else failed, but it was the 6 mo. old belt.

                After 5 days of installed by the mechanic this belt just tear-off. Bad quality and the warranty was honored.
