I don't believe there is an idler pulley on that model, just a tensioner pulley
NO it is not.
Probably not the air pump. Could be the power steering pump or the tensioner pulley or maybe the idler pulley.
Probably the idler pulley or the tensioner pulley on the serpentine belt. Carefully use a little squirt bottle and spray each one with a little water. When it gets quiet you know which one to change.
Are you talking about the "idler pulley"? They are quite simple to change. Loosen the serpentine belt by using a socket on the center of the tensioner pulley, slide the belt off the idler pulley, use a socket to pull the center bolt of the idler pulley and replace the pulley with a new one.

First with a 1/2 drive rachet release the tension and the neopream belt. Then with a socket take out only nut holding the pulley. Replacment will guide and only fit one way.
The idler pulley has nothing to do with the brakes. If the idler pulley is bad it could throw or break a belt, and then your engine will stop.
In an Inline 6 Jeep engine, the idler pulley is located to the right of the A/C pulley. It is a smooth pulley, not a grooved one.
It could be the clutch fan that is going bad. I had the same issue & the expense of the part and manpower can be $400 to $700.
Remove the belt, then remove the bolt holding in the idler pulley.
The idler pulley is between the alternator and the A/C compressor.
Use a 5/8 deep socket. The pulley should fall down when loosened enough.
The idle or pulley will have movement in it, when the engine is shut off. It can also have a visible wobble while the engine is running.
If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley. Pry the idler back and remove the belt.If you are referring to the Serpentine belt, you loosen no pulley. You simply remove tension from the belt. The tension is applied by the Idler Pulley.
