Replacement of 98 Wrangler Sport (W/ A/C) Serpentine Belt
I'm going to try to replace my serpentine belt this weekend, and would appreciate guidance.
I've not owned the Jeep long, but the belt has alot of small cracks, and I suspect it's original (Jeep has 59K miles).
After looking at the configuration, I thought the approach would be;
1) loosen the belt tensioner pulley using the long 'adjustment' bolt, which is on a 45 degree angle on the right side facing the Jeep.
2) Replace the Serpentine Belt.
3) Tighten the 'adjustment bolt. with the same number of revolutions , but in the opposite direction.
I don't know whether loosening is clockwise, or counter-clockwise.
Is it this straightforward?
Thanks fpr the help.
