01 WJ Serpentine Belt (4.0)

Hello all

I was just wondering how hard it is to change out the belt on my 01 WJ with the i6. By that I mean are there any tricks, or what do I need to be able to do this job?

Thanks a lot yall.

Brian

Thanks, a totally moronic retort. What a pal. I already have one but for some AMAZING reason they do not seem to always get all of the tricks in there, so I just thought HEY, why not ask all of the really nice knowledgeable people here at JF to see what they might be able to share.

Instead I get an idiot like yourself commenting. So kind, thanks, putz

Thanks, I am grateful.

Both of you need to calm down.

cmonson, not everyone knows every little trick of the trade when it comes to working on jeeps. It was a valid question and deserves a valid response.

Ford_Prefec, calling people names is just childish. Next time, just let it go and hope someone else replies with a respectful answer.

Now, cant we all just get along. We are all here to help eachother

Look at this diagram. http://wjjeeps.com/serpentine.htm

I tried to use the star socket but they all twisted and the tensioner would not move. I ended up taking a long screwdriver and just pressed on the arm near the pulley to relieve tension, it took suprisingly little pressure.

It is very easy to change. I am sure you can do it. No real tricks involved.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, how do you have time to do it over.
