Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The easiest way to change a serpentine belt is to go and buy a serpentine belt tool (Around $15-$20 at the auto parts store.) It's a long, flat wrench with bits that will fit most belt tensioners. The idea is to move the belt tensioner down, to allow the belt to relax so you can pull it off.
Once you have the belt off, follow the serpentine belt installation diagram on a sticker, located under the hood. Then, while pushing down on the belt tensioner, slip the belt on to the last pully and then slowly bring the tensioner back to tension. Double-check your belt routing with the belt diagram before starting your Grand Cherokee.
I hope this helps! :)

this is done by locating the spring loaded tensioner and taking a 3/8" ratchet and pushing. it is only spring loaded. make sure you follow the routing diagram or if one is not handy under the hood, draw it out as to not forget. it ONLY goes on one way. make sure also that the writing on the belt, you can read it normally without having to stand on the engine. if you dont these belts have the potential to squeek like a bad pulley or belt.
