  7. Move the air conditioning compressor forward.
  8. Disconnect the alternator harness connector.
  9. Remove the alternator mounting bolts, and lower the alternator from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Hold the alternator in place and install the mounting bolts.
  2. Plug in the alternator harness connector.
  3. Move the air conditioning compressor back into location.
  4. Install the radiator cooling fan and shroud.
  5. Install the air conditioning compressor mounting bolts.
  6. Place the drive belt on the alternator pulley.
  7. Tighten the drive belt to the proper tension with the idler pulley.
  8. Install the splash guard.

Proper belt tension is important. A belt that is too tight may cause alternator bearing failure; one that is too loose will cause a gradual battery discharge and/or belt slippage, resulting in belt breakage from overheating.

How to remove the idler pulley on a jeep grand cherokeen1994


which engine? we can not guess engines.
unless, stated, or show with a photo. (add photo)
open hood see EPA sticker and engine is clearly stated there. USA.

read the FSM
read alldata. com
ZJ
4.0L:?
do tell and we CAN answer.

idler on 4.0, just it, is IT bad, or just a belt swap, do tell.
serpentine belt.
the book says, engine with no power steering (you) do have
spring loaded, idler, but the other engines and with power streering
NOT.
so is this a P/S free car" I must assume so this is the FSM quote for taht
special case: (ive never seen a P./s free GC) but here goes.
If the engine is equipped with an idler pulley, loosen the idler pulley adjusting bolt, insert a prybar between the pulley and the engine (or in the idler pulley adjusting slot), and adjust the tension accordingly. If the engine is not equipped with an idler pulley, the alternator must be moved to accomplish this adjustment, as outlined under Alternator Belt.

why not post a photo of the part that cant be removed.????

but if V8?? (it should not be, as that was introduced in 1994)(
it has a turn bolt CW to release tension, on V8 idler.
my book dont show how to remove said pulley
but I think yours is broken.

How to replace the tention idler pulley


using a breaker bar or some other tool w/ 1/2'' drive, insert into idler, there is a square hole, remove belt tension, donot remove belt, but lift belt off say the alternator, it would help if you hang the belt w/ wire or something so as not to let it drop. using a 15mm wrench, remove mounting bolt to idler, remove idler. better to replace the entire ilder w/ pulley, as an assymbly, they wear out like any thing else. when istalling new idler, must be positioned correctly. theres a finger which protrudes out of idler, this must be inserted @ engine sideof idler. reinstall bolt, tighten, reposition belt, using breaker bar 1/2" drive again, remove belt tension, so you can get belt over alternator pulley, release tension , done ! make sure belt is centered, and on properly according to belt rounting. when satisfied w/installation , start engine, check your work, remember to visulize existing idler, etc., etc., before you start this so you can put on the new one on exactly the way the old one was !!!!!!!!!!1

How to change alternator belt


914d651.gif
alternator and air conditioning compressor
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen the idler pulley bolt.


The replacement of the inner belt on multi-belted engines may require the removal of the outer belts.
To replace a drive belt, loosen the adjusting and mounting bolts of the component which the belt is driving. Move the component inward to relieve the tension on the drive belt.
Slip the belt off the component pulley and match the new belt with the old belt for length and width. The old belt will be slightly longer. After a new belt is installed correctly, adjust the tension.
  1. Turn the adjustment bolt at the top of the idler pulley bracket. Clockwise rotation will tighten the belt; counterclockwise will loosen it.
  2. Keep the idler pulley bolt snug (but not tight) while adjusting belt tension. The adjustment bolt should turn with moderate force.

After adjustment is satisfactory, tighten the idler pulley bolt, and then tighten the adjustment bolt.


Reconnect the negative battery cable.

When replacing more than 1 belt, it is a good idea to make note or mark what belt goes around what pulley; this will make installation easier if you mix up the belts.

How to loosen the fan belt to get the altenator off?


There is a idler pulley that keeps tension on the alternator belt.... it is spring loaded, use a breaker bar and a socket (to place on the molded nut (looks like a nut, but when you move it the tension is released on the belt) to take the pressure off of the belt for removal from the alternator.... it's location is next to the alternator.

The alternator does not move, just the idler pulley

  1. Insert a 1/2 inch flex handle in the square hole in the tensioner. The tensioner has a square hole cast into the rear of the tensioner body directly behind the pulley. Rotate the tensioner clockwise and remove the belt from the pulleys.

NOTE As an alternate method, a 16mm socket can be placed on the tensioner pulley bolt and rotated clockwise to remove the belt.

To install:
  1. Following the schematic on the decal under the hood, loop the drive belt over all the pulleys except the alternator pulley.
  2. With the belt installed properly on all except the alternator pulley, rotate the tensioner as described above and install the belt on the alternator pulley. Ensure that all the V-grooves make proper contact with the pulleys.

4.6L Engine
WARNING Do not allow the drive belt tensioner to snap back as damage to the drive belt tensioner or personal injury could result.

How do you remove the alternator on a 2.7L? How


To loosen the belt look for a pulley that isn't running anything. That is your tension pulley and somewhere either in the center of the pulley or arm the pulley is bolted to there will be a square hole that is the same size as a 1/2" drive socket. Find your 1/2" socket and put it in that hole and either in tightening or loosening position you should be able to move the pulley so the tension on the belt loosens up so you can take it off the pulley. then remove the bolts of the alternator and the wire plug and you got it whipped.
