Serpentine belt replacement ????!!!!??

I am in the process in changing my belt on my 97 wrangler sport 4.0 4x4. Where exactly is the pulley to loosen the belt ? My TJ has a/c and power steering. I can't seem to find the pulley !! Thanks in advance

It's on the power steering bracket on the driver's side of the engine. Loosen the big bolt that the pulley spins around, then turn the long skinny vertical bolt in the bracket on the left side to move the pulley up or down to loosen/tighten the belt. After it's all back together, tighten it so the belt can barely be deflected no more than 1/2" max when pushed hard by your thumb at the belt's widest unsupported distance. Then don't forget to retighten the big bolt the pulley spins around.

I know the bolt you are talking about. I cant seem to get the new belt ON. I just simply cut the old belt off lol. I moved that pulley all the way down but I still can't get the belt around it to be able to tighten it. Thanks again !
