Re: Can you convert a pre 97 xj to an automatic belt tensioner?

I think '96 to '01 all use the same idler pulley/tension adjustment system.

I hate that 15mm bolt in the middle of the idler pulley. I have found a line wrench that has about the right offset, but so far that is the only tool I have found to do that job halfway gracefully. I am thinking of welding up a couple of "wrenches" using 15mm sockets.

A spring loaded tensioner would be nice.
