Expand-It 40 volt locking collar T bolt stripped

Give these ones a try.. But NOTE; There is no need to tighten these up that tight.! There is no way that you should have to tighten them up enough to strip the thread.. its holding on an extension shaft together, its not having to hold the weight of a vehicle.

Handle bars

just under the part the handlebars go through (the gooseneck)
there is a bolt that takes a 6 mm allen wrench, tighten the bolt, If it still doesn't tighten it might be stripped (there are ridges on the bars and the gooseneck).... Some bikes have 2 shims that fit around the bars, not sure if yours did or not, they could have fallen out when it loosened up if so you need to replace them good luck

How do you replace a serpentine belt for 1996 jeep cherokee sport?

You need to loosen up the power steering pump and un-adjust the jack bolt that runs under it. Then just follow the diagram on the sticker on the radiator support. If you can't find the sticker, I'll give you the routing if you ask. to tighten the belt just tighten the jack bolt and lock down the bolts you loosened on the pump. Tight is when you have about one inch deflection in the longest run of the belt,
Loose is better than too tight as you can re-tighten it if necessary. Too tight will damage pulley bearings.

Replacement of a 4.0 1997 jeep fan belt.

in order to do this on the power steering pump you have to loosen a few bolts to let it pivot on the top bolt in the front, then on the bottom on there is an adjustment bolt try to mark where that is tightened to with some electrical tape and then loosen it until the belt can be removed. put the replacement belt on the jeep in the exact same way the older belt was on and then tighten the adjustment bolt on the power steering pump until where you marked it where it was previously tightened to. then tighten the rest of the bolts you loosened and try to start it up. Have Fun.

Stripped head on a brake caliper bolt

I would try either vise-grips if you can get at it otherwise you may have to get a set of easy-outs. They work by you drilling a hole into the bolthead and then as you turn them they tighten in the opposite direction thereby loosening the bolt .. be sure to put alot of penetrating fluid wherever you can to get in and around the bolt shaft and threads ...
