In order to relieve the belt tension in your cherokee jeep,you have to locate the belt tensioner pulley first, which is found between the crankshaft and a component toward the top of the hood area.

Afterwards,Rotate the belt tensioner pulley, using a wrench spanner to relieve the tension on the belt.

Cant take belt off


Serpentine Belt?

Belt Tensioner uses either a socket or ratchet driver without socket. Usually you pull the tensioner down - counter-clockwise to relieve pressure from belt. Is usually tight you may need a longer lever for leverage.

I hope this helps!

1996 jeep cherokee sport with 4.0 does not have a tensioner on the fan belt. How do you change it?


One of the idler pulleys has a built in spring loaded tensioner. You have to use a ratchet to turn it, which relieves tension on the belt while removing and also when replacing the belt.

How to adjust de belt to grand cherokee 8 cilinders 4.7


  1. Step 1 Find the belt tensioner pulley. The tensioner pulley is generally between the crankshaft and a component toward the top of the hood area.
  2. Step 2 Check the belt routing so you know how to replace the belt. You may be able to find a belt routing diagram on a decal on the fan shroud or in support documentation. Otherwise, make you own sketch for reference.
  3. Step 3 Rotate the belt tensioner pulley, using the wrench, to and relieve tension on the belt.
  4. Step 4 Slip off the old belt and slowly release the tensioner pulley.
  5. Step 5 Use your belt routing diagram to put the new belt onto all of the pulleys. Pay close attention to the water pump pulley, as incorrect routing can cause the water pump to run backwards and overheat.
  6. Step 6 Make sure the belt is correctly routed and seated on all pulleys. Rotate the tensioner again to allow for the belt to slip onto all pulleys and then release the tensioner again to regain correct tension on the belt.

How do I release the tension on the belt to remove and replace the alternator on a 1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport?


Very simple....just loosen the mount bolt on the pivot arm and adjusting bolts....the bolts that mount the alternator....the slack will allow you to remove the alternator....installation....bolt on your replacement alternator and place your belt on the pulley. Pull on the alternator to give it tension and then tighten bolts at the same time...have an extra set of hands for this.

you cannot adjust tension. but you can relieve to change the belt. it will be a square hole on the tension arm. a 3/8 drive ratchet will do the job. i have seen some that require a wrench on the pulley nut.

How do i change a Timing Belt Tensioner on a 1995 jeep grand cherokee v8 5.2 my belt burned in 2 it and i need 2 take it off n replace it


You really need a repair manual for your model. Most Auto parts stores carry these. However, If your timing belt has been broken (burnt) while the vehicle was running, then you'll need to check for bent valves or cracked pistons. If you are not one, you may need a mechanic.
