To get out, 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.
  • The tensioner pulley is near the Alternator toward the center of the engine. It's on a spring loaded arm. 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

Hope helps (remember to rate this answer).

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE IDLER PULLEY?


It is as simple as removing the nut and pulling it off and sliding the new one on. Once you get it back replace the belt and set it to the correct tension. It is as simple as that. Without a belt tension gauge a good rule of thumb is about 1 inch of deflection at the longest belt run.
On your engine it's 1 inch between the power steering pump and the air conditioner compressor.

2000 jeep grand cherokee 4.0 liter engine timing belt replacement


If you have the same pulley arrangement that most 4.0 engines have that pulley is an idler not a tensioner. Your power steering pump has a pivot bolt, and a slide under the pump. You adjust belt tension using the pump.

Replacing water pump on a 1993 jeep grand cherokee


are you sure its water pump? it kind of sounds like your not sure. is there any visable leaks? if no leaks, that noise you hear could be that idler pulley your talking about. what you need to do is loosen the belt(witch there should be a spring loaded tennioner pully that you got to move to get belt off) once you get belt off spin all pulleys that the belt runs on and see if there noisey, or excessively loose, even fan blade, if fan blade moves alot back and forth than its time to replace water pump( fan is bolted to water pump),( it will move a little thats normal) i'am betting its not the pump, its most likely one of them idler pulleys. now if you need a belt routing diagram, advance auto, autozone, or any other major auto parts stores have web sites you can go on to get one, or you can get one from your local auto parts store, sense you will have to go there for a part any how. if you need anymore help just ask, i'll help you as much as i can. good luck. OLD SCHOOL.

The belt keeps coming off the fan


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.
