My wife's '95 Wrangler is chriping when it is running at idle..I am pretty sure it is the serpintine belt. I bought a nwe one and went to replace it but I cannont figure out how. I don't see a spring loaded pulley anywhere so I can loosen it up to take it off or pull it on. Does anyone have any ideas? It is the 2.5L 4-cyl w/ A/C.

Any help would be appreciated,

The engine in my Jeep is completely different from yours, so I'm afraid I can't be of any help. I can, though, bump your message back up to the top.

If noone here has the answer you could try (it might be .org, not sure). Someone there would almost definately know. :)

I have a '92 4.0L I6.
But I did have some chirping, found it to be one of the idlers pulleys.
Sprayed some White Lithium grease at the bearing.
Bye, Bye Chirp.

Just my. 02

I have already sprayed all my pulleys and it didn't stop. Besides the belt needs to be replaced on it had 62,000 miles on it.
loosen the power steering pump, I think it is like 3 bolts to loosen, then use a pry bar to move it. Mine was rusted on, but that was form 9 years in Rochester, NY. You should be able to move it enough to get the belt off, then its just a matter of wiggling it past the fan, and putting the other belt back on the right way. Good luck, estimated time: 1hr, if you have to break a bolt like I did.
