A video how to:

Saw this browsing some jeep sites, thought it would be a great watch for those wanting to save a few bucks. Especially since the belt is a important replacement.

Enjoy.

Really? That's it?

Guess I can change the belt on my sister's Liberty after all...

Figured there were a few more steps involved.

Heh, no worries Paul. Find the auto tensioner on your 3.7 and do the exact same thing!

I would imagine it's the same process. You may want to put a pipe over the ratchet handle to extend the handle to get more torque.

i changed mine yesterday and it was even easier than the video made it look. i put on a goodyear gatorback. my old belt seemed fine after 60k (no cracks or fraying) but the new one is much quieter. the belt was around $40 at a local auto store and seems worth it since it got rid of that annoying loud belt noise.
