I am about to replace my serpentine belt. I've had it off before when I replaced my alternator but I never could find the pulley tensioner. I'm not even sure there is one or if there is just something wrong.

I was able to get it on by having someone barely try to start it while trying to stretch the belt on - not the safest way but the only thing I could think of to do.

So, what is the proper way to put the belt on?

Moving this to the Grand Cherokee section.

Which engine? The 5.2 has an automatic tensioner - use a socket wrench on the pulley on the far left as you're facing the front of the engine. Basically, rotate it clockwise and you can then slip the belt on. Once you have it routed properly, release the tension and it'll adjust to where it's supposed to be. The 4.0 is adjusted/installed by loosening 2 bolts on the back of the power steering pump and a pivot bolt (top) and lock nut (bottom) on the front. Last but not least, on the driver's side, there's a bolt that you turn counter clockwise to relieve tension and clockwise to tighten on the belt.

There should be a label that shows the proper routing of the belt - I'd consider myself lucky that you were able to get the belt on the way you did without losing any fingers/limbs/etc. Mr. Green

Easiest way to do it is to look at the pullies .. The belt lays flat on the grooved pullies and the back goes on the flat ones ..
THis is a 98 diagram.. I am pretty sure its the same..
