Re: best place for serpentine belt?

What about these tools? Does anyone remember the part numbers for these tools at AutoZone. That might help others as well.

Re: best place for serpentine belt?

Gatorback or Mopar? They are both priced the same.

Re: best place for serpentine belt?

I used an offset box end wrench of 15 mm (when im not wrong about the size) to unload the tensioner and remove/install the serpentine belt on my 4.7
When doing this, take care in not letting the tensioner go back to its stop with force, because it can/will damage the tensioner.

Thanks bro, that will be very helpful.

Anyone else with any insight as to which brand carries a better product?

I'm leaning towards going the OEM route just to be on the safe side.

I just actually found the Gatorback for less on amazon.

Re: best place for serpentine belt?

Sofar ive only heard good things about the Goodyear Gatorback belts. They seem to be more flexible and making less noise then the standard belts. I have just ordered one myself.
Gatorback for 2006 3.7 WK is $ 28,79 at Rockauto.com
