2004 Dodge Neon: automatic belt tensioner..assembly..Alternator

Customer Question
I have a 2004 Dodge...
I have a 2004 Dodge Neon 2.0 HO and need to replace the automatic belt tensioner for the AC/Power Steering pump. My tensioner is not serviceable, and must be replaced with the entire tensioner & plate assembly. From the top of the vehicle, the plate appears to connect with Upper & Mid engine mounts & run under the power steering pump, & possibly the Alternator. Can someone confirm the following replacement procedure?

1.) Remove passenger wheel for access,
2.) Drain coolant,
3.) Support engine, detach upper and middle engine mounts,
4.) Remove Power steering pump,
5.) Remove & replace plate w/ tensioner

Am I missing anything? Pictures and a copy of the official service procedures would be helful.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
