Near the top of the serpentine belt path is a belt tensioner; it is spring loaded and has a shinney pulley on it. Insert a wrench into this tensioner and pull against it and the tension will be released so you can replace your belt. I am assuming your question is about the serpentine belt.

1996 Jeep Cherokee Tensioner Pulley?

There is no tensioner pully. The Power Steering pump has a moving bracket that adjusts the belt tension. It has a long adjustment bolt. You have to remove the air cleaner and housing to reach it successfully. Funny, mine has a belt tensioner pulley under the power steering pump, which is tightened by a long adjustment bolt. So does every other 1996 Cherokee I've worked on!

The serpentine belt you can look at the diagram in your engine compartment for actual routing. The tensioner mounts to the left side of the engine. You need to unbolt the whole assembly. Actually, the belt can be loosened by tightening the bolt of the tensioner pulley. When fully tightened, the pulley will act as a swivel.

How do you loosen the tensioner pulley in a 1996 Tracker?

We recently replaced the serpentine belt on our 2003 Chevrolet Tracker. We were able to place a wrench (I believe it was 9/16") on the tensioner pulley and apply pressure so the pulley released tension on the belt. This however did no allow enough slack to install the new belt so we removed the idler pulley at the top center of the engine. With the idler pulley removed we were able to route the belt and with the tension released on the tensioner pulley, routed the belt under the idler pulley and reinstalled the idler pulley, then released the tensioner pulley and the belt was installed. Be sure to note the exact route of the old belt before removal so the new belt follows the same path. Hope this helps.
