Hello and thanks for your post. Well my friend is is quite simple. all you have to do is get ubder thevehicle on the front passenger side and take off the plastic splash shield covering the crank pulley. Sometimes these covers fall off in time so you may or may not have one. If you can see the pulley system then your okay. Now you need to l;ook for the tensioner it will have a hole that looks like you can put a 3/8 ratchet head in it. You can put a ratchet in it and push up to relieve tension and loosen the belt.Some of these vans also had a 14 or 15 mm bolt you could grab on to release the tension.
