Serpentine Belt/Power Steering Pump

I have a 1995 Cherokee Sport with a 4.0. I recently had to replace the water pump, but now my issue is getting the serpentine belt back on. I loosened the nut underneath the pulley, and I turned the torquing bolt (which is also located underneath the power steering pump). Problem is, when I turn that bolt, it extends out instead of moving the pump. I've tried loosening the other bolts that hold it in place, but I still cannot get it to move. Is there something else I need to be doing?

Did you loosen the bolt on the pully itself...... To Adjust the belt first loosen the bolt holding the pully down then adjust the bolt on the pully bracke. If u look down it in sideways on an angle it's 15mm

Then adjust that bolt to tighten or loosen the pully

I found the problem. There are two bolts on the backside of the power steering pump that need to be loosened. I only located and loosened one. I've since loosened it and got the belt back on.

Chris,

You are showing the tensioning system for the 97+. The OP's model uses a jackscrew that faces the airbox, and there are bolts on both the front and back of the PS pump that must be loosened to adjust tension.

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.
