Changing serpentine belt on a 1994 Wrangler

1994 Wrangler
6 Cylinder
No air conditioner

I tryed searching, but I believe it is time to change my dad's serpentine belt on his Wrangler. I do all my own maintenance on my 2004 Wrangler, but I am not familiar with the belt's setup on a 1994 Wrangler. Mine has an auto-tensioner... and I know his doesn't. I recall there being a bolt by the alternator that I loosen... take the belt off, install the new one and then torque down the same bolt? Is that it? If so, what's the torque spec for that bolt?

Thanks in advance.

The tensioner is underneath the power steering reservoir, you can't miss it. It's super long and a pain in the *** to turn.

20-25 ft lbs on the mounting bolts and 20 ft lbs on the tensioner.

And a new belt should be tightened between 180-200 lbs, tested between the idler and power steering pulleys.

The tensioner should be built into the P/S pump mount. There should be 3 15mm bolts. Two in the back and one in the front, I think. Once the P/S is loose, you can loosen the lock but for the tensioner. The tensioned is a long screw that is perpendicular to the engine on the driver side. Loosening it will bring the P/S in and loosen the belt.

When your done running it for the first time...you will probably need to retighten it due to its stretching a bit. Happened to mine when I changed it.....squeeled after a few days and had to adjust more.

not on an I6, the tensioner pulley is next to the power steering pump. you loosen the center bolt of the pulley, then theirs a long bolt at the top of the pulley you loosen to make the pulley release tension on the belt.
