the pulley in your pic (stationary pulley) is easy to change, if you have to change the tensioner pulley, its a little tricky. You have to line up the tensioner bolt housing and the pulley bolt when putting it back together.

these are the bolts that you need to get to in the diagram

the pic of the broken bolt (dont do lol) is the tension bolt and the square part is the housing the pulley bolt goes into. its behind the metal frame the pulley is on

you can see it if you climb under your jeep behind the front driver side tire.

Take your belt off and start the engine and see if it still squeaks. If it does then it's something in your engine and not a pulley.

I'm having a similar issue. When the engine is all the way warmed up (210 deg) there is a horrible squealing sound when I come to a stop. As soon as I get over 5 mph the squeal stops. Even if I'm stopped and I rev the engine the squeal persists, only when I begin driving does the squeal stop. Is this a pulley issue?
