If you have a tesioner you should not have to loosen any bolts. Look for a square hole in the tensioner (should be 3/8 rachet drive size) and pull it away from the belt. You may need a belt tensioner tool to do this...............good luck, Mike

In my 99 wj jgc there is a tensioner and the manual for the 2000 also shows a tensioner. The I6 has a tensioner on the passenger side near the middle of the engine front. It is a idler on an internal spring mechanism with a mark on it that indicates tensioner life. The device is self adjusting and neds no maintenance unless broken -- it self indicates status. To move it place a 3/8 inch breaker bar in the square 3/8 inch slot and turn right to loosen to get the belt off .... not too hard..

If the tensioner cannot put a full 'load' on a new belt (as shown by the wear indicator markings on the side of the tensioner) - it's likely the tensioner requires replacing.NOTE: some sources recommend replacing it at 60,000A bad pulley (bearing) would be making whining/screaming noises.See "Related Questions" below for more
