Hi Don,

It's easy and you won't need a prybar.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • For putting the belt on: Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

Hope this helps you out.
Mike

1.Most modern cars have an IDLER pulley in the fan belt train of pulleys with a heavy spring on it that keeps tension on the timing belt.

2. Get a spanner/socket and put it on the nut in the middle of the idler pulley.

3.heave on the spannner and the pulley will swing up/down out of the way realeasing tension on the belt. (depending on the tensioner setup)

4. Simply remove old belt and thread new belt on. Simple.

I'm replacing the serpentine belt on a 2001 cherokee sport 4.0 and the belt tension adjustor does not seem to be loosening. got the old one off, but cannot get the new belt back on.


It will be necessary to undo the pulley nut first as the adjuster bolt has to be able to move the pulley spindle and the nut is what locks it in place to take the load off the little adjusting bolt.

How do ichange alternator on 92 jeep laredo


You'll need a 15mm, 13mm, 10mm and 8mm sockets and a 3 inch and 6 inch socket extender. You will need the same sized for regular wrenches as well.

The problem is available room. You have to take out the battery and the battery holder (15mm nuts), then remove the fan housing and then the fan (4 13mm nuts that are hard to get off if the serpantine belt is not tight) - the fan is in the way and you won't be able to get the alternator out if its inplace.

Next, you need to remove tension on the belt - this is done with a 13mm socket and wrench (access is tight on some bolts). Remove the bolt in the back of the power stearing pump assembly, then down below the pump you'll find another to loosen (don't remove). the loosen the one at the top fo the power stearing pump - you'll find a bolt under the pump where you can loosen the tension on the belt. This may be stiff and will require a 6 inch extension (the air filter and water hoses are in the way)

Once the belt is loose, you can take the 2 bolts that hold the alternator off (15mm). There is are 2 cables attached. One to an insulated post (10mm socket) and another one that is ground and some other alternator connections. the cables are attached to the block via a 13mm nut - remove this and you can pull the alternator out (I had to wedge it out with a broom handle). remove the cables, and clean the contacts on them with some 150 grit emery cloth. Pull the Alternator out and put the new one down and re-attach the cables. You'll need an 8mm socket for 2 of these nuts.

Slide the Alternator in and get the bolts in (its a tight fit on the engine).

Reassemble in the reverse order (getting the bolts back on the fan assembly took me quite a while).

Hope this helps

I need to know how to put a serpatine belt back on jeep cherakee 95 6cyl


Belt adjustment is done by loosening the bolts holding the poser steering on and screwing in/out the screw under the pump.(head is under the pump facing the left fender) Draw yourself a diagram before removing the belt so you don't have a problem putting it back on.

I have a 99 mitsubishi diamante and i broke the power steering belt how do i put it back on


Looking at the front of the engine you should see, from left to right, the PS pump, a tensioner pulley, and the crank pulley.

Loosen the 14mm fixing bolt and the 14mm fixing nut on the tensioner pulley.
On the bottom there is a 14mm adjuster bolt, loosen it to slide the pulley downward. It helps to have a swivel socket to access this bolt.
The belt goes around the outside of all 3 pulleys.

The alternator belt will need to be loosened to get the PS belt on behind it.
Between the Crankshaft pulley and the ac compressor pulley you will see another adjuster. Simply loosen the 14mm nut on the center of the pulley, then loosen the 14mm adjuster bolt sticking out the bottom to slacken the belt enough to slip it off.

Use the same adjusters to tension the belts once installed, and tighten down all fixing nuts/fixing bolts.

Be advised: If you broke your PS belt, you should verify your pump and tensioner pulley are in good shape and spin freely, and were not the cause of belt failure before putting on a new belt!
