    Default 03 GRAND CARAVAN

    I have two easy questions: I have to change the buld for the brake rear
    passanger side brake light. I see that there are two small black plugs just
    inside as you open the tailgate. Do you just pull these things out and the
    lamp assembly is released so you can get it out to change the bulb

    The second question is regarding changing the cerpintine belt that drives
    the AC, PS pump etc. On my old 96 Grand you just had to put a power bar in
    the idler pulley and pull to release the pressure. This 03 with 3.3 Ltr is a
    different beast. Is the the best approach to go underneath and remove the
    small black plastic shroud that covers the belt and somehow remove the belt
    from below.

    Maybe its just cause I was used to the old 96 but things sure seemed to be a
    lot easier to get at on the old van, or maybe the old dog just has to learn
    new tricks, any help would be appreciated.

    You can do it that way or use a 3/8 breaker bar from the top. We have the
    vehicles in the air so it makes it easier to do from the bottom
