Belts already off need to get slack for new one


The 6 cyl engine uses an adjustable pulley to keep the belt tight.
The 8 cyl engine uses a tensioner that is spring loaded.
You have to loosen the mounting bolts and turn the adjusting bolt to move it on the 6 cyl.
You use a bar or wrench to move the tensioner.

If you need more details about youe Jeep ZJ Grand Cherokee, can check this documents about Repair Manual: Grand Cherokee 1993-1998 FSM

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).

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.

How To Change A Fan Belt On A Jeep cherokee 96


That depends on which engine you have. On v8 engines you need to put a wrench on the tensioner pulley and pull it over. On six cyl and four cyl engines there is an adjustment bolt on the power steering pump. Loosen the pump slide bolts and turn the adjustment bolt that moves the pump in and out of adjustment. (bolt runs under the pump...long threaded rod with a bolt head)

Where is the belt tensioner on a 1997 jeep wrangler


Likely a similar arrangement as the cherokee, especially if it's a 4.0... Loosen the pivot bolts on the power steering pump. Under the pump is a "jack screw" that adjusts the pump position and tightens the drivebelt.. Access to the screw head is either towards the fender or towards the block (bolt runs transverse). Some later versions use an idler under the pump that works the same way.

Can not find tension release for the serpentine fanbelt on a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Loredo. Help....!


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.

Replace the water pump for 1995 Jeep Cherokee 4.0 6 cly. There is no apparent tension pully for the Belt. How do I get the Belt back on with out a tensioner pully?


The reason you can't find the tensioner pulley is because you do not have one...The power steering pump is used to tension the belt. loosen it up and slide it. (some have an adjustment screw underneath to adjust.)
