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

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.

Previous Jeeps: 84 CJ7 (A True Jeep), 2000 XJ (163,000 Miles/Totaled (Pictures of wrecked Jeep in gallery)), 2004 WJ (parting out die to major electrical issues)

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