I am trying to replace the fan belt on my 1988 Bronco II. What do I do to replace it with a new one. THe old belt broke off.

Hi, there are pivots bolts on the alternator, power steering pump, and A/C compressor (if you have one). Depending on which belt is broken, you may have to remove outer belts first to install inner belts. To remove a belt, you have to loosen the pivot bolt on the accessory as well as the adjusting bolt. The accessory will then pivot to loosen the belt. To install a belt, again loosen the pivot and adjusting bolt, install the belt, and then carefully use a pry bar to pivot the accessory to tighten the belt. While holding the belt tight, tighten the adjuster screw and then the pivot bolt.
Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

The belt is loosened and removed by loosening the power steering pump to relieve the tension of the belt to allow for removal.

Want to know how to change out the serpentine belt step by step

You will need a 3/8 drive ratchet to put in square hole in belt tensioner. The tensioner is located just below power steering pump and a little to right. Check for belt orientation and diagram on front of engine bay. Push or pull ratchet to loosen tensioner. Remove belt. When installing new belt, flat side of belt rides on flat pulleys and the grooved part of belt rides on grooved pulleys. Install belt around all pulleys except power steering and tensioner pulleys, loose tensioner and install belt on last two pulleys.

I can't seem toget my belt around the alternator,aircondition,waterpump

You should have a tensioner pulley somewhere in the belt's path. It will be mounted to the engine but not connected to anything. You need to loosen it and swing it in towards the engine to install the belt. Once the belt is in place, pull the tensioner to the outside and tighten it, but leave some flex in the belt. If the pulley wobbles or whines, you'll need to replace it, too, or it will destroy the new belt.

NOTE: If the belt still won't go on with the tensioner released, the parts guy may have sold you the wrong belt.

Does the 1991 Wrangler 4.0L have a self tensioner

Sounds like you have all the info you need but are afraid to try the job. Look under the P/S pump and you should see a bolt that runs under it (left to right). You don't loosen the pump pulley, but actually you loosen the pump itself. Loosening the bolt underneath will remove tension from the belt, tightening it will restore tension, but only after loosening the two bolts that allow the pump to slide back and forth on the mount bracket. Make sure you know where the belt goes before taking it off (draw a picture if you need to) and, remember it is very easy to overtighten it. after installing, belt should have about a half inch of deflection. Check this befrore starting and again after about an hour of running.

1990 Ford Crown Vic Serpentine Belt Problem

Sounds like someone rigged this when replacing the belt previously. The 'old school' way would be to unbolt the compressor to slide on the belt.
