loosen your altertanot bolt. theres 2 bolts holding it on, one supports the weight of it the other holds tension on the belt. crack it loose and the alternator will swing down and to get the tension back there should be a 1/2 or 3/4 ratchet hole that you use a ratchet without a socket on it to tension it back up while you tighten the bolt

How do you put on a water pump belt on a 93 4-cylinder Cavalier?

Your water pump should run off of the serpentine belt. there shouldn't be a separate belt for the 4 cylinder. if you change the serpentine belt, there is a belt tentioner in the middle. using a wrench, not a ratchet(the ratchet will not have enough room to fully turn the tentioner), turn all the way to the right, remove the worn belt and replace it with a new one, following the belt diagram on the inside of the passengers side fender.

It is never easy to replace a heater core. Replace it is easy, but getting access to it is never easy. But your Jeep Wrangler is one of the easier ones to replace. Just remove enough of the dash parts to gain access to the core. Be careful and remember where and how everything goes back together. Photos taken during the process with digital camera might help you remember.

Jeep Wrangler serpentine belt replacement?

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 adjustment 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...

How do you remove the manual transmission in a 1990 Jeep Cherokee to replace the slave cylinder?

You should not have to remove the transmission to replace a slave cylinder. It should just unbolt. That model has 2 options, external and internal, sure enough I got the internal where you have to drop it. The Haynes manual shows an easy fix for external.
