NEED TO KNOW HOW TO INSTALL A SERPITINE BELT ON MY 1995 JEEP CHEROKEE COUNTRY, 4.0 ENGINE


The belt is loosened and removed by loosening the power steering pump to relieve the tension of the belt to allow for removal.

The belt diagram is like this;

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.

I am unable to loosen the tension pulley on a 93 jeep cherokee.I have loosened the bolts but it will not slide to allow belt to fit.


I'm going to assume you have either a four cyl or an inline 6cyl...The tension is provided at the power steering pump. Loosen the fasteners and look underneath. There is a "jack bolt" that is just under the pump that faces the left fender. Screwing it in or out moves the pump and adjusts belt tension.

Need to find the tensioner location on a 1993 jeep grand cherokee


it doesn't have a tensioner. if you are looking at the engine there is a bolt located under the poweer steering pump that you need to loosen and then there is a long 1/2" bolt that you must loosen until the pump starts lowering and you can get the belt off. The power steering pump pivote up and down to change the belt instead of a tensioner.

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.)

Replace my serpentine belt 2000 Jeep 4.0 Cherokee Sport


The alternator has a tensioner bolt on it. loosen all the bolts on it and then loosen the tensioner bolt. It's a really long bolt that is sideways to the others.
