1996 Jeep Cherokee 6 Cylinder belt and alternator replace

My battery holds a charge until I drive my car - I assumed original alternator needs replacing - inspection showed serpentine belt is a bit worn and thought I'd replace that too. Is this something to tackle at home (I've done brakes, replaced radiators etc)...or am I getting in over my head. I thought it'd be a good excuse to buy that nice torque wrench I've always wanted

Generator light on 1996 jeep cherokee. what does


First clean the battery terminals & their connection to the battery. Check to see if the alternator belt is tight. Once started, connect an amp. meter to thebattery terminals. Black to black, red to red. If the reading is over 13.2, alternator is charging. If it is not, change the alternator. If it is over 13.2, you may need a new battery. Have a load test done at any reputable automotive store. Hope this helps & if it does please do the right thing & recommend this advice. Thanks

Replace serpentine belt for 6 cylinder 4wd


Loosen the power steering pump rear mounting bolts, pivot bolt and lock nut and then loosen the power steering pump adjusting bolt. Slip the belt on and tighten the adjusting bolt until you can push the belt in about one inch midway between the A/C and alternator pulleys. Then tighten the lock nut, pivot bolt and mounting bolts and that's it.

It helps to diagrams to go with the instructions. Get yourself factory service manual, promanuals.net has them for around 20$ or so.

1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee intermittent voltage drop, lose electric


I wont list this as a solution, but it seems that working in the area of the alt may have moved around some wiring...the alt may be OK but perhaps an adjacent wire (maybe a ground) is not well connected. Also check crimped on wire loops on alt connectors..they like to corrode at the crimp where it crushes on the actual wire.

check for battery voltage at the charge post on the alternator and at the 2 wire connect with the key on .if you have it then its a bad alternator. if you have a belt spinning the alternator.

Drive belt is loose on 6 cylinder 96 jeep. How do I adjust it?


You will Probably need a New Belt Tensioner. Draw a Diagram of the Belt Routing Before Removal of the Belt.You will need to Locate the Belt Tensioner. It has a Large Pulley on a Bracket that Has a Bolt in the Middle and a Smaller Pulley that Goes Under the Belt and Holds Tension on it. You will need to get a Wratchet, Socket, and Cheater Bar. Turn the Bolt On the Top Large Pulley with the Wratchet and Cheater Bar. This will Lower the Smaller Pulley So that you will be Able to Remove the Belt. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Car squeels when is started


Kinda Sounds more like an alternator problem. I would take your Cherokee to Autozone (or anywhere that will check your battery for free) and make sure that its a battery problem. Also you may want to look at your alternator as well (which if you take into autozone they will check for free as well). Maybe belt is slipping around your alternator drive which in turn is not charging your battery. I would try out the free stuff and go from there. :)

Sincerely,

JC
