The spring mechanism is wearing out on the belt tensioner. Replace it now or it will become very expensive when the AC bracket breaks

The only reason for the belt coming off the pulley is the something in the belt path is off aligment.
put the belt back on and chek the path where the belt pass. water pump, alternator, AC compressor, Power steeling unit, etc....... or even the pulley tensioner itself.
chance are there is a belt in the wrong pully slot.

I have a 1996 jeep grand Cherokee. It runs fine except for the squealing belt! Just replaced the water pump and the belt and it's now worse than it was before! Any ideas? I checked the auto tensioner...


You have an out of alignment belt run across the pulleys of the engine, this causes the belt to make noise as it rubs on the edge. Many times this is causes by the crankshaft vibration damper coming part and the pulley walking outward.

Need to know length of serpentine belt to bypass A/C on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee 5.2 L


Take the old belt off. Place a piece of string around the pulleys in the correct routing location. The length of the string is the length of the belt you would need.

1996 jeep cherokee sport with 4.0 does not have a tensioner on the fan belt. How do you change it?


One of the idler pulleys has a built in spring loaded tensioner. You have to use a ratchet to turn it, which relieves tension on the belt while removing and also when replacing the belt.

Must i remove the radiator, the grill, and the fan, in order to change the fan (serpentine) belt on the 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo?


Absolutely not.. It will come out by releasing tension on the belt and working it around the pulleys..It's tight but it will come.

Replacing water pump?


Not difficult. Lean on drivebelt to keep pump from turning while removing fan. The rest is bolt off, bolt back on, make sure all gasket material is off block. If you don't get a manual, draw yourself a belt diagram so you can put it back on. adjustment is either p/s pump or separate adjuster pulley below p/s pump.

Did you check your ac pulley before installing the belt? check for some play on your ac pulley. your ac pulley bearing must have been worn out and needs replacement.

1996 Jeep Cherokee Classic with serpentine belt and fan problem or water pump?


Hey Dougnchico,

I'll bet your car died. And it over heated, And the battery was flat
, And the steering went out and every other system run off of the belt.

This is for anybody who has had trouble getting a serpentine belt on. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name suggests, is to keep the belt tight. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done
