Power steering pressure line/ power steering belt

hi i got a few problems, on the belt in the engine that makes the power steering work how do you make it so u can put a new belt on. There is no way to make it move it seems like to me without removing the whole power steering unit. On the other belt that works the other things i easily made it move by just loosening is and it had a little "track" that the bolt was on allowing it move around a bit.

as of right now my power steering line got caught in the fan somehow and put a hole in it so it leeks all over the place. to solve this temporarily i cut the belt that made the power steering work because as i said ealier i could not find a way to move it to just slide the belt off. How much is a new power steering fluid pressure line going to cost? is it an easy fix to put the new belt on and the power steering line?

btw '90 wrangler 2.5l 4cyl

thanks alot any help would be great

Loosen all the bolts for the steering pump. Now look from the driver's side fender and you'll see a bolt going into the side of a long bracket. This bolt is about 6 inches long. It goes into a sliding threaded square nut sorta thing. Turn this long bolt to loosen or tighten the belt. I usually remove the airbox to get better access.

i think that's only on the 91+ models. or maybe the serpentine blets. on mine there's just two bolts on the back of the pump that you loosen and then slip a 1/2" drive ratchet into the square hole and use that as leverage to pulll the belt tight. can't help on the pressure line though, never had to replace that.

Hose

Check with jeep stealership about new hose. You could probably find a union to splice the two ends of the hose after you cut the slash out. I assume this hose is rubber, if not ignore lol. I'd check under the yellow pages for a hose maker or hydraulic line shop in your area or ask a local mechanic shop where you could get hose parts of that type. Good luck
