Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee
1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee - multi-rib belt replacement. My Jeep has almost 150K miles and I have owned it since 50K and have not replaced the multi-rib belt. I just lost one of the ribs today, so I quicky pulled over the vehicle as I heard something starting to wind or unwind.
I don't have a manual, but I will buy one if I need to. I am trying to assess if I can handle the project myself. Will this replacement project just include the belt, or do things like tensioners or pulleys need to also be replaced? Do I need any special tools or can I just use handtools?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Check on upper rad shroud or under hood for routing diagram. Depending on what engine, procedure may vary a little. I wouldn't panic on replacing anything other than belt unless you noticed something noisy under hood in last while.
If not up to it, a mechanic should be able to do it for you in a few minutes usually, but won't hurt to ask before, just in case.
