How to remove the idler pulley on a jeep grand cherokeen1994


which engine? we can not guess engines.
unless, stated, or show with a photo. (add photo)
open hood see EPA sticker and engine is clearly stated there. USA.

read the FSM
read alldata. com
ZJ
4.0L:?
do tell and we CAN answer.

idler on 4.0, just it, is IT bad, or just a belt swap, do tell.
serpentine belt.
the book says, engine with no power steering (you) do have
spring loaded, idler, but the other engines and with power streering
NOT.
so is this a P/S free car" I must assume so this is the FSM quote for taht
special case: (ive never seen a P./s free GC) but here goes.
If the engine is equipped with an idler pulley, loosen the idler pulley adjusting bolt, insert a prybar between the pulley and the engine (or in the idler pulley adjusting slot), and adjust the tension accordingly. If the engine is not equipped with an idler pulley, the alternator must be moved to accomplish this adjustment, as outlined under Alternator Belt.

why not post a photo of the part that cant be removed.????

but if V8?? (it should not be, as that was introduced in 1994)(
it has a turn bolt CW to release tension, on V8 idler.
my book dont show how to remove said pulley
but I think yours is broken.

How to remove idler pulley on 03 saturn vue V6


If you go to Saturn .com you will be able to locate a link with a parts diagram. This will show you the bolt that holds the idler pulley in place. You first have to put a socket and breaker bar on the pulley to remove the tension, then remove belt from tensioner pulley. Try to keep it from falling off other pulleys. There will be a belt routing diagram under the hood on the front to the left or right of the hood latch. Try using a piece of twine or wire to hold belt in place while changing idler pulley. Then remove idler pulley pivot(mounting bolt). Hope this helps, please post solved on fixya.com. So I get credit for a solved problem if it does. If not, check back and give me more info.

Locate the idler pulley to the left of the crankshaft pulley. The idler pulley bolts to the idler arm. The idler pulley is replaced with the arm because they are sold as one unit.

  • 2 Place a 3/8-inch ratchet driver into the square hole on the face of the idler pulley and pull up on the handle. This releases tension on the Sonoma's serpentine belt. Pull the belt off the idler pulley, lower and remove the ratchet handle.
  • 3 Remove the two bolts that secure the idler arm to the engine block using a socket and ratchet, and discard the old idler arm.
  • 4 Place the new idler arm against the engine block and secure it using the socket and ratchet.
  • 5 Put the ratchet driver into the square hole on the new idler pulley, pull up on the handle and place the serpentine belt over the pulley.
  • 6 Lower and remove the ratchet handle.

    How do i change the idler pulley on a 2000 Ford Windstar?


    Remove the belt or loosen it enough to move it off of the idler pulley. If you are going to remove the belt, draw you a diagram of how it wraps around each pulley first, if you don't have one.

    The one large bolt that holds the idler pulley on will have to be removed, it is all that holds that pulley on.

    Note any spacers/washers as everything must face in the same direction and be reassemble as it was, including the way the pulley mounts to be sure the belt aligns perfectly watch for a spacer on the back side also.

    good luck.
