Default 2003 Dodge Stratus Coupe 2.4L 4cyl SOHC Alternator Belt

Hello,

I am hoping that someone can help me with an alternator belt problem that I am having. I need to replace the alternator belt that fell off, but I am unsure which size to buy. Autozone is saying it's either the alternator/AC belt (37 inches K5) or the alternator/Water Pump belt (57 inches K5). When I look at the pulley system, it looks like the alternator belt goes from the alternator to the first pulley to the right, which would require a 25 inch K5 belt. I am confused if the belt should wrap more than 2 pulleys. I see the Serpentine belt to the right that hits about 3 pulleys including the water pump.

Can anyone help with a diagram, picture, or advice?

Thanks,

Mike

Welcome to DF
Here are some Mopar numbers for your car, Alt MD376691 and P/S Belt MD365263. I don't have access to aftermarket parts list.

Thanks! So it looks like I need the 37 inch belt. I just now saw that the pulley at the bottom of the engine that is connected to the serpentine belt has two sets of belt grooves. I am thinking that I need to take off the serpentine belt in order to apply the alternator belt. Does this sound like the right direction?

Thanks,

Mike

Yes it does. You are in the right direction.
