It will be necessary to undo the pulley nut first as the adjuster bolt has to be able to move the pulley spindle and the nut is what locks it in place to take the load off the little adjusting bolt.

SOURCE: Can not find tension release for the serpentine

On some Jeeps the tension is held by the alternator adjustment and there may be no tensioner pulley. See if the alternator bolts into an adjustable arm mount. If so - loosen the alternator and rotate it to release the tension.

Testimonial: "I think I found the tension release just below the alternator. It appears to require an allen wrench to loosen it but I haven't started repair yet"

Testimonial: "Will try one up here. We're in Jersey now, my wife had it down in Maryland for almost 3 years while I worked in NYC and every time I went to the dealer they gave the impression that I had to pay just to talk to them. I've almost paid for this car twice. 120K miles on her, would like to get at least another 60K. Thx."

I'm replacing the serpentine belt on a 2001 cherokee sport 4.0 and the belt tension adjustor does not seem to be loosening the pulley. got the old belt off, but cannot get the new belt back on.


alldata.com
page 1, line 1 (serp)
Tension is maintained using an automatic tensioner pulley assembly. The drive belt is tensioned by adjusting the position of the idler pulley, accomplished by moving the adjuster bolt on the idler mechanism.

here, pasted in whole.

Serpentine Belt Because serpentine belts use a spring loaded tensioner for adjustment, belt replacement tends to be somewhat easier than it used to be on engines where accessories were pivoted and bolted in place for tension adjustment. Basically, all belt replacement involves is to pivot the tensioner to loosen the belt, then slide the belt off of the pulleys. The two most important points are to pay CLOSE attention to the proper belt routing (since serpentine belts tend to be "snaked'' all different ways through the pulleys) and to make sure the V-ribs are properly seated in all the pulleys.
Although belt routing diagrams have been included in this section, the first places you should check for proper belt routing are the labels in your engine compartment. These should include a belt routing diagram which may reflect changes made during a production run.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable for safety. This will help assure that no one mistakenly cranks the engine over with your hands between the pulleys, and that the cooling fan cannot activate while servicing the belt(s). NOTE Take a good look at the installed belt and make a note of the routing. Before removing the belt, make sure the routing matches that of the belt routing diagram. If for some reason a diagram does not match (you may not have the original engine or it may have been modified), carefully note the changes on a piece of paper.
  2. For tensioners equipped with a 1/2 in. (13mm) square hole, insert the drive end of a large breaker bar into the hole. Use the breaker bar to pivot the tensioner away from the drive belt. For tensioners not equipped with this hole, use the proper-sized socket and breaker bar (or a large handled wrench) on the tensioner idler pulley center bolt to pivot the tensioner away from the belt. This will loosen the belt sufficiently that it can be pulled off of one or more of the pulleys. It is usually easiest to carefully pull the belt out from underneath the tensioner pulley itself.
  3. Once the belt is off one of the pulleys, gently pivot the tensioner back into position. DO NOT allow the tensioner to snap back, as this could damage the tensioner's internal parts.
  4. Now finish removing the belt from the other pulleys and remove it from the engine.
To install:
  1. While referring to the proper routing diagram (which you identified earlier), begin to route the belt over the pulleys, leaving whichever pulley you first released it from for last.
  2. Once the belt is mostly in place, carefully pivot the tensioner and position the belt over the final pulley. As you begin to allow the tensioner back into contact with the belt, run your hand around the pulleys and make sure the belt is properly seated in the ribs. If not, release the tension and seat the belt.
  3. Once the belt is installed, take another look at all the pulleys to double check your installation.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable, then start and run the engine to check belt operation.
  5. Once the engine has reached normal operating temperature, turn the ignition OFF and check that the belt tensioner arrow is within the proper adjustment range.

How do i adjust a serpentine belt on a 96 jeep cherokee


You don't. If the belt looks frayed or otherwise damaged you replace it. There is however a belt tensioner which kind of automatically applies tension to the belt which removes the need to adjust belts like the old v belts with the adjustor brackets. You shouldn't have more than 1/2 to 1" or belt play otherwise if so your tensioner may be going out and need to be replaced.

Can't find serpentine belt tensioner on 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee


right, for the 4 liter,
  1. Loosen the rear power steering pump mounting bolts using a ratchet and 13mm socket or a 13mm box wrench.
  2. Loosen the pump upper pivot bolt, lower locknut and the pump adjusting bolt using a ratchet and 13mm socket or a 13mm box wrench.
For the V8
  1. Attach a socket or wrench to the pulley mounting bolt on the automatic tensioner and rotate the tensioner assembly clockwise until the tension has been removed from the belt.
  2. Remove the belt from the idler pulley first and then from the vehicle.

Change serpentine belt on 06 sienna


  1. 1 Check to ensure the Sienna's engine is cold, then make sure the Sienna is in park, the ignition is in the off position and the key is removed from the ignition to prevent any possibility of the engine engaging during the serpentine belt replacement.
  2. 2 Open the hood and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram sticker on the side of the engine casing. Study it for a moment before removing the existing belt. It is essential the new belt be installed exactly as the diagram indicates.
  3. 3 Find the tensioner pulley, the main pulley that controls the serpentine belt, and fit a 1/2-inch socket wrench over the self-tensioner on the outside of the pulley.
  4. 4 Pull the wrench to the left to move the pulley forward, which loosens the belt, then remove the belt.
  5. 5 Compare the old serpentine belt with the new, replacement belt for length, width and number of grooves on the belt's underside. Be certain the replacement belt is the right part.
  6. 6 Fit the new belt on to each pulley according to the serpentine belt routing diagram on the manufacturer's sticker, or according to the drawing made prior to removing the old belt. Fit the new belt on to the tensioner pulley last, again applying pressure on the pulley's self-tensioner with the half-inch socket wrench to loosen the pulley.
  7. 7 Release the pressure on the self tensioner and allow the tensioner pulley to ease back into place, thereby tightening the new serpentine belt with the appropriate tension.
  8. 8 Remove the wrench and close the hood.
Thank you and good luck,

Loosen the tensioner pulley to remove the belt. It is the one that has a long bolt running through it. Once you remove the old belt, install the new one using the appropriate diagram from the above two links. Readjust the tension using the bolt you loosened to remove the old belt.

I need to replace my serpentine belt. Which


For a 94 Jeep grand cherokee, the tension is controlled through a long bolt on the power steering bracket. The bolt is about 6 inches long, located underneath the power steering on the driver side. Lossen the lockbolt holding it in place, as well as the Power steering attach bolts, and turn the long bolt to tighten/loosen. I believe these are all 13 mm bolts.

Jeep cherokee country tensioner pulley noise


May be a weak tensioner that needs replacing. Make sure you clean pulleys well with brake cleaner or similar as well. I have had one with similar problem, that Gator back belt was causing it. I'm not 100% convinced that a notched belt will get as good a grip as a complete rib all the way around the belt. Just doesn't add up to me. If you compare that to tire grip, then you'd be telling me that snow tires would work better on the Nascar circuit?
