We have 97 T&C mini only costed $125 for a local mech to do. Its pretty tight in our compartment , he used a special breaker bar and long wrenches to reach down to the tensioner area. If you have to spend $30-40 in tools, you may never use again just get it done.

You'll need a tensior tool and just a normal 3/8 ratchet. you can ussally just rent a tensioner tool from any car shop.
