I just had my AC condenser pump realigned for the same belt noise issue. They also discovered the bolts holding the condenser in place were stripped out from the previous owner. I now have no belt noises! I had replaced the idler and bearing and have been through 3 belts before we figured this out!

Jeep Grand Cherokee with new belt and still squeaks.


The pulley you describe sounds like the idle pulley and it should be straight and if you remove the belt and turn the pulley it should roll free and not bind. In short I would change the pulley as it has a bad bearing in it.

My bottom pulley squeals real bad i dressed the belts and they stopped for a lil bit, the belt is snug. is there anything i can do to quiet the pulley on the bottom of the motor?this is a 97 jeep grand...


Is it possible that the belt tensioner is the cause for the squeal or possibly the belt itself needs to be replaced. Although not impossible, the lower pulley usually is not the cause for belt squeal, unless it is damaged.

Serpentine belt keeps coming off or breaks it on my jeep


If you didn't have the gauge problem before you replacved the pump it's likely that you either damaged the float mechanism or have a bad harness connection there. (could also be a gauge problem if it began before pump change)
Serp belt will either break or walk off a pulley if either a pulley bearing is bad or something is out of alignment ( look from the side and make sure all pulleys are not too far to the front or rear) If a pulley or bearing is bad (applies to alt, a/c and p/s as well) it can cause the belt to "shock" when it binds and can throw it off. You need to remove the belt and turn each one and feel if they are either loose or rough turning (you can't exert as much pressure as the belt does so what feels slight is far greater under belt pressure)

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee squeaking and power steering


It very well could be the pawer steering pump. But to isolate the squeking sound, take that can of wd-40 and find the idler pully and tensior pully. Spray the bearing area of both pulleys. If your bearing in those pulleys are going bad then it will make that noise. If the wd-40 quits the noise at one of those tow pulleys then you know which one to replace. If its does not, then start looking to replace the powersteering pump. I take it you have checked the power steering fluid levels and they are ok?? Also, you stated that the noise started after you bought the alternator, then try a new alternator. It might of just been a faulty alternator. Happens all the time. One last inexpensive tip is replacing all belts with new. Belts get glazed over and dirty and cause noise too. One last question. Did you make sure the belts were tight enough? Just a little variance in the belt tension can make the difference.

Did you take the time to clean all pulleys good with brake clean or similar cleaner, when belt was off? . Sometimes a little antifreeze, or windsheild washer antifreeze can get spilled on the belt(s) and cause that, as well as an oil drip. Take a flashlight & double check that you don't have oil dripping down on there somewhere. Only other thought is that maybe power steering pump working too hard or alternator on it's way out, causing extra load on the belt.
