Open the bonnet of the Pajero, and turn the bolt on the centre of the tension pulley with a socket wrench two full rotations. The tension pulley is the pulley directly behind the fan in the upper portion of the front of the engine.
Loosen the adjuster bolt on the tension pulley bracket. This bolt is on the left-hand side, situated in a long horizontal groove.
Slip the fan belt off of the engine. Draw a diagram of the path of the fan belt if the factory printed sticker diagram is no longer in the front of your engine on your Pajero.
Insert the new fan belt, winding it through the various pulleys according to your diagram. Put it on the tensioner pulley last.
Place the tension belt tool on the tension pulley bolt and pull until the slack in the belt is gone. When there is no slack, keep the pressure on the pulley, and tighten the adjuster bolt with the wrench. Tighten the lock bolt on the pulley.
If it's the same as my sister's 2002, there are two belts. The tensioner for the outer belt is on the front, under the power steering pump or ac compressor(cant remember which is on the front there). Loosen the one that locks it in place, and the pivot point bolt on top, then the long one can be turned to adjust tension. All 3 of those bolts are 14mm heads. For the inner belt, it's a pain. It is in the rear, under the alternator. 12 mm for that tensioner and lock out bolt.
in order to do this on the power steering pump you have to loosen a few bolts to let it pivot on the top bolt in the front, then on the bottom on there is an adjustment bolt try to mark where that is tightened to with some electrical tape and then loosen it until the belt can be removed. put the replacement belt on the jeep in the exact same way the older belt was on and then tighten the adjustment bolt on the power steering pump until where you marked it where it was previously tightened to. then tighten the rest of the bolts you loosened and try to start it up. Have Fun.
If it is like a 94, the power steering belt is either middle or front, You might be able to sneak it past the fan, not sure, usually you have to take the fan off, Not the four bolts up front but the 3 bolts into the block holding the bracket. take the fan shroud out,2 srews/ bolts, and clips, getting the top radiator hose out of the way helps. Loosen the tension nut up front, and I believe you have a square hole for a half inch drive breaker bar, use it to move the pump left and right to loosen and tighten the belt. Then tighten the nut back up, put every back, you are all set. If the belt is in the middle, you have to take off the ac belt first. Loosen the tensioner on this belt, and wind it down, Then back up when you are done. Hope this helps.
If you look at the tensioner pulley, there is a stud on which the pulley rides, and then a large washer and a nut (which holds it on). The nut must be loosened just a bit (not so loose as to allow alot of play in the mounting) but just loose enough to allow movement - then you can turn the adjustment bolt Clockwise(CW) tighten - or Counter-CW to loosen - but leave it just a bit shy of tight, then as you tighten the nut, the pulley will straighten and tighten a bit more. I hope this is what you are referring to. Hope it helps! DD
