When driving through deep snow the serpentine belt may be forced off the pulleys. If pulley alignment is found to be OK a shield is available to prevent snow from coming in contact with the belt.

Dodge Spirit Driving in Snow May Force Serpentine Belt off Pulleys
Dodge Spirit Problem
Engine Affected: 3.0L V6
Visitor, 1992 Dodge Spirit, 3.0L V6, 95,000 mi
Drove through snow that someone plowed into the road from their driveway and within a 1/2 mile I lost my power steering & soon realized the belt came off. Replaced the belt. Now it's about a month later and another snow storm, drove through a snow drift and off came the new belt. Tried simply replacing it, but it came off again today after driving through water in the road from melting snow. This time I put on another new belt along with a new tensioner belt pulley. We will see how this one holds up.
