Looking for some technical expertise...
Change the fan belt this evening on my '97 TJ 2.5L and discovered something interesting. The bolt to adjust the tensioner just turned and turned and turned, and would not adjust the tension of the pulley. My mirror handle is pointing at the bolt in question...
Reached my hand around the backside of the bracket and realized that there is nothing securing the bolt to the bracket to allow the pulley to go up and down. Am I missing something here, or should I be able to adjust that tensioner?
If this thing is broke, could someone give me a part # to research through Autozone/NAPA or Mopar? And, if I can replace the missing part, can I do so without replacing the whole bracket?
One last question, if you were troubleshooting a squeal out of the fan belt and it wasn't the belt, would you go for the pulleys or the alternator? The alternater is showing 13.6v or higher on my meter, so I know it's good. Not sure if I can replace the pulley on the darn thing.
