RE: 1995caravan es 3.3
The ordeal hasn't changed much over the years and it's still not a fun job so watch these two clips to get the general feel for what needs to happen.

Hint: When working with serpentine belts and their associated automatic tensioners (spring loaded) watch your fingers. They pack a lot and will pinch you in a heartbeat if you slip. Secondly, it's always easier to move the belt off and on a larger pulley rather than a small pulley when doing this in a tight space. Notice in one of the videos they leave the PS pulley for last for just that reason. Finally, try to find a Goodyear Gatorback belt. They last almost twice as long as the Gates brand and you don't want to do this job again!

Oh, also notice the approach to the bottom via removing the plastic flap behind the tire.
