I am trying to replace the serpentine belt on my 2007 Dodge…

Hi, I am trying to replace...
Hi,
I am trying to replace the serpentine belt on my 2007 Dodge 2500 with a 5.9. I am having a hard time getting it back on. I had cut the old one off. I am having a hard time trying to get the new one around the fan pulley. There is some kind of sensor that goes to center of the fan hub from the front of the fan. do I need to take this off and if so, how do you do that? I got so frustrated I just quit working on it for the night. I did get it around the tensioner pulley so what should I do from there. I'm feeling fairly stupid right now so you may need to bust out some crayons and draw me some simple pictures.

what is the deal with this sensor that is in front of the fan hub?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
how do you get around that? no one mentions this thing

please take a pic of the sensor you are talking about. you dont need to go around the fan anyway if you start the routing differently.

did I do the right thing starting with putting the belt over the tensioner first? If so, which pulley should I do next? then which next? etc. could you tell me that?

follow the number sequence on the diagram

If I do that I have to try to put it around the fan and I am back to the same problem.
