It sounds as though you have one of the pulleys in bad shape or you may have something rubbing against the belt. Do you have any noise from the belt area? Make sure the pulley grooves are clean and unobstructed. Hope this helps.

One or more pullys are ethier siezed or wobble while spinning. Take the belt off so you can spin every pully and watch for them to wobble or not turn at all.

Please contact me if your problem presists.

Thanks, Charlie

Jeep Grand Cherokee with new belt and still squeaks.

The pulley you describe sounds like the idle pulley and it should be straight and if you remove the belt and turn the pulley it should roll free and not bind. In short I would change the pulley as it has a bad bearing in it.

Will 96 rear end work in a 99 grand cherokee

A 96 Grand Cherokee rear end is not compatible with the 99. The Grand Cherokee changed body styles in 99, and among other things, the bolt pattern for the wheels changed.

I can't find the belt tensioner for a 96 grand cherokee.

There should be a picture diagram of the belt routing on serpentine models located under the hood in the front of the engine compartment which should show you exactly where it's at if not just email me back the clarification information

Power steering pump

First check the distance from the bracket mount points on the block, to the pump mount points on both brackets. If distance is different then the brackets are different. If they are the same, you may need to either change pump itself to one that matches engine year. However, if there is sufficient room on the pump shaft, any shop that rebuilds pumps can re-position the pulley to your specs, or replace the pulley with one that has a different offset.

We need to replace the alternator, 96 Grand Cherokee, Lorado,

1.Make sure the battery is disconnected while working there. @. Make sure that all electrical terminals are clean (on alt & battery) before putting back together. 3. use anti-seize compound or some good lithium grease on fasteners on re-assembly. It helps to keep them from freezing into aluminium and makes removal easier in the future. You may have to remove some other stuff to get the alt out, but it shouldn't bee too difficult. Make sure you either have a belt routing diagram, or make your own before you take it apart.
Good Luck
