There is a tensioner pulley on the drivers top side of the engine. Loosen the bolt on the pulley about a turn or so (I believe it's 15mm). Then loosen the adjusting bolt above the pulley until tension is off the belt. Remove the belt and route the new belt in the same manner the old one was. There should be a diagram under the hood showing the routing. If not, draw a quick one up before removing the old belt. Tighten the adjusting bolt until there is sufficient tension on the belt and lock down the pulley bolt.

You could fit a 3/8 ratchet square in the tensioner.pull up to loosen tention.remove belt.install belt by lower pullets first and the last pully to receive the belt should be the alternator.this way it will be alot easier to installer since youll be tugging on your ratchet at the same time to loosen the tention.if you have a hard time with your ratchet find a stell bar that could fit over your ratchet for added torque when ur pulling up.the job is very simple.just make sure you look at how the belt goes.draw it down if you dont have a photo of it under ur hood.

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.

Belts come in various sizes. If you have the old one, it should not be too difficult to simply match it up with another. the adjuster should take up any slight variation. You can get close enough even if the belt has broken by just holding the ends together.(parts houses generally have a measuring device to use for this) Once you find the correct belt, write down the brand and part number and keep it for reference. (best to write inside the owners manual or on an index card to keep in the glovebox. (or both). Don't remember seeing any of that year without A/C but guess it's possible.

My 2000 Jeep Cherokee has been overheating esp. when my air conditioner is on and im driving up any sort of hill. it also makes a squealing noise for a little bit when my air is on too. A few days ago it...


First when it's cool I'd replace the missing antifreeze. Then I'd have the Serpentine belt checked and/or replaced, while that's being done I'd have the pulleys, adjuster and waterpump checked.
