You will need to go to Autozone and borrow or buy a tensioner wrench The tensioner wrench fits on to the faceplate nut on the tensioner pully The tensioner wrench is simply pu…lled clockwise and this releases the tension on the spring-loaded pully and the serpentine belt is then removed with the pressure constantly applied to the tensioner pully so it allows the serpentine belt to be relaxed There is a schematic on the upper inside hood that shows how the serpentine belt is "threaded" through the engine/smogpump/a/c compresser/water pump pully On the 4.0L engine, you can also do this with an appropriate sized socket (around 5/8, I think) and a breaker bar. Turn the center bolt of the idler pulley COUNTER CLOCKWISE about 1/6 to 1/4 turn, then carefully reach under and behind the pulley to locate the retainer latch (it is a flat piece of spring steel, out of sight on the lower right side behind the idler pulley when facing the engine from the front) and press this toward the tensioner pivot; then slowly release the wrench. The tensioner should then stop on the retainer at a semi-released position so you can remove the wrench. To take the idler off the latch, be sure to rotate it COUNTER CLOCKWISE again until you hear the spring release.
You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.
If you have a 2.5 engine, the easiest way is to take off the two 15mm alt bolts. that gives you the room, then just take a pry bar or large screwdriver to shift the alt into p…lace while tapping the bolt into the space
Answer . \nIf it is a 4.0, loosen the two rear steering pump mounting bolts, the upper pivot bolt, and the locknut and the adjusting bolt located on the bottom of the unit…. Push the steering unit in and remove the old belt. Remember how it was routed. Replace with the new belt. Pull the steering pump back and tighten the adjusting bolt for tension. Then tighten the other bolts.
Answer . \nFirst, there should be a diagram of the serpentine belt and pulley system on the top of the radiator fan cowling. If there is not, make one b/4 you remove your…s--just draw the pulley arrangement first. Then examine how the belt comes off the pulley, draw the "weave" pattern of the belt through the pulleys and double check one last time. At this point, you can cut the belt off or take one last opportunity to examine the pattern as you remove/slide the belt off by relieving the belt tension using the tension adjustment bolt behind the power steering pump.
Below and toward the center of the engine from the powersteering pump is an idler pulley. Loosen the 15 mm bolt in thatpully, but do not remove it. Then, just to the right and… below (asviewed from in front of the engine) the water temperature sensor isanother 15mm bolt. This is the tensioner bolt. Loosen it all theway, the new belt will not have streched yet and will not fit overthe pulley if you don't. Reverse the proceedure to install, if youforget to tighten the pulley when you are done you will be doing itagain real soon. Find the idler pulley tensioner and remove tension from the belt.It will then come right off.
Answer . You will find one of the pulleys the belt rides on is called the BELT TENSIONER. It is usually the smallest pulley the belt runs on. If you look at the tensione…r you will see a square hole in the tensioner out to ward the end toward the pulley. This square hole is where you insert a 3/8 inch drive socket, then normally you will have to push down on the driver and you will feel the tension on the belt release. Push the driver down further until you can slip the belt off one of the smaller pulleys.\n. \nMake sure you have a digram of how the belt is routed on all the pulleys. There is usually one mounted close to the top radiator support. If not, get pen and paper and draw you pulleys and draw the belt directions on the pulleys so you can get the belt back on.
u need to relaese tension on the tension pulley. this is usually done with a long socket wrench handle. when u release tension and remove belt you then release tension on pull…ey until you have routed new belt . you then move tension pulley again until you can put belt on it, then release pulley and it will automatically provide correct tension
There is a tensioner under the power steering pump. Lossen the pulley with a 15MM socket .. Do not remove it ... On top of the bracket to the left of the PS pump there is an a…djustment screw again 15MM lossen it as well and the tensioner pulley will provide slack in the belt....once there is enough slack in the belt remove it make notes on how the belt is routed on the Alt,AC etc.... Replace with a new belt and tighten the adjustment screw until proper tension is on the belt then tighten the tensioner pulley below the PS pump.. This is for a 98 Wrangler TJ...
there should be a model on the frame somewhere under the hood. You use whats called a tensioner to loosen the belts tightness on the wheels. It will have a bolt head on the fa…ce of it. you simply get a wrench that fits the head and push down and you should see it spin out of line, thus making more room for the belt after you find this it should be pretty easy to follow the diagram to get the belt on the rest of the way correctly
A ratchet isÃneeded to loosen the serpentine belt tension pulley ona 2002 Jeep Wrangler V6. It will require a 1/2 inch ratchet.
There is an idler/tensioning pulley that keeps the belt tight. You must release the tension on it (usually they have a nut on the shaft that can be used for leverage to releas…e the tension). Then remove the belt paying careful attention to how it is routed. There also should be a sticker under the hood that shows the belt routing. Usually it shows the routing with different options- cars with A/C have a compressor that ones without do not have. Just follow the routing diagram to install replacement belt.
On the power-steering bracket, you'll see a bolt going into it vertically from about the 11 o'clock position. this bolt is very long, but you may not be able to tell. loosen t…his bolt and back the PS pulley bolt out a few turns and everything will go slack, allowing belt replacement.
if your looking under the hood look to the pully to the far right, its the water pump pully. loosen the two bolts in the front(dont take them off) then behind the pully there …is a bolt about 4 inches long(kinda hard to see) loosen that bolt and the belt should also loosen and you can change it.....simple as that....hope this helps!
There should be an extra pully. This pully appears to not go to anything, however it's job is go keep the belt tight. I don't recall the wrench size, I think it's 16mm. Put th…e wrench on the pully's center nut and push or pull towards the center, this should move the pully enough to get the belt off.
If yours has a tensioner pulley, loosen the bolt at the center of the pulley slightly, then turn the tensioner bolt ( top ) clockwise, tighten the pulley when done. If no te…nsioner, you will want to tighten at the power steering pump. Loosen the top bolt on the power steering pump, and the bottom nut, both are facing toward the front, then loosen the two on the back of the pump, then turn the adjusting bolt to the desired tension on the belt, the adjusting bolt is below the pump facing the drivers side. The alternator will move when you do this.
Having the engine type is crucial here, but if it is a 4.0 just loosen the idler pulley bolt, then turn the idler pulley adjuster counter clockwise until sufficient slack is i…n the belt, remove it ans place the new one on as the diagram shows on your radiator bracket right near the hood latch.
