Doing the first work on my 93 today. I've just about finished replacing most components on the cooling system and while I was at it, I wanted to change the Drive Belt.
I can't get the current belt loose. (The alternator isn't adjustable/what puts tension on it.)

You have to look for the hidden bolts. On mine I have two adjuster bolts to take loose pluse the long mount bolt. So look at all the bolts top and nbottom it is in there somewhere. You don't get a lot of throw but it is there.

A little more clarification on my behalf.
It's a 2.5 without AC.
It looks like my adjustment is done with the power steering pump pulley. I tried adjusting it there, but I'm not getting results.

It is like that on all the YJs seems to be at least one hidden bolt had me going batty on the PS pump a couple of years ago. So we all learn by doing. Have a great day!!!!

I'm glad, too! Thanks for the replies :)
Another question. Prior to changing the belt, I could easily spin the idler pulley and there was barely any friction. Now that I've changed the belt, there's more tension on the idler pulley, but I can still spin it easier than I would think. Is this normal? Should I buy a new idler pulley?
