Use a prybar to release the belt tensioner. This will allow you to slip it off. To install, you may need to remove a bolt from the alternator.

That is one way to do it but not on my 1992 Cherokee Limited 4.0 HO. The Power Steering pump was actually the the tensioner pulley. You have to loosen the base then loosen the adjusting bolt under the pump. Prybar and removing bolt from alternator would not work.

In a 94 GCL I used a 10mm(?) socket on the tensioner pully and pulled right. Slack was immediate. No need for removing anything except the belt.
