How 2 loosen serpentine belt on 2000 TJ with Auto?

Ok... I have a 20000 TJ with auto trans and NON-remote resevoir for P/S pump. The question is how do you loosen the serpentine belt? What acc loosens the belt. My repair manual that I have shows an exploded view of the P/S pump where it is the acc to loosen the serp belt but I don't have the same setup. There are brackets below the belt that I don't have.

Confused? [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

Thanks,

one of the tensioners moves...stick a 1/2" ratchet in it.
you are looking at the 97-99 TJ set up. in 2000 they moved everything around.

The sticker on or near the radiator should have an arrow pointing to the location of the moving idler/accessory. Should be easy enough to figure it out from there.

Re: How 2 loosen serpentine belt on 2000 TJ with Auto?

LEVE you are the best. Thanks for the email... Was very helpful and was what I thought I needed to adjust.... Ok first my apologies for not mentioning its a 4.0. HMMM I did mention I have an auto? Boys and Girls this is what too much alcohol does to the brain... anyway.

So its a I6 and I see that I looked over the tensioner for a bit and it looks like I need to put the Torx socket on the tensioner and it should pull loose from there but I put the torx socket in there and gave it a really good tug and the only thing I did was actually bend the torx socket!

Am I missing something or do I just need to get a better set of torx sockets?

Thanks again for putting up with my lack of brain cells
