    Noob to the Niner World

    Hello veteran Niners.

    I am Brad and I am new to the 9er world as of this week. The 9er I purchased has a long history on this forum.


    This was boatflippers thread and Bens below it.

    Thanks guys. Already in my first 48 hours of 9er life I threw a belt. Let the Jeep life renew, Just Empty Every Pocket. Lol

    Any idea why it tossed a belt?

    Make sure your tensioner is still tensioning, lol

    Our power steering pulleys have been known to crack but I doubt it would get bad enough to toss a belt. More likely it would crack completely and just fall right off.


    I learned the hard way when my AC compressor seized and ate a belt. (Compressor seized internally, pulley was fine. Still don't understand why it didn't disengage)

    Anyway...
    Now I always recommend carrying or even buying a spare wrench or a breaker bar/socket combo (whatever has enough leverage to let you change the belt) and carrying that and a spare belt under one of the back seats. If you lose the belt you lose everything - and it can overheat before you even find a safe place to pull over. It's cheap insurance.

    Thanks Z88Z. I think the belt issue was a combo of things, the largest being older in a very hot engine compartment. All pulleys are working fine and the belt did not fully throw, just spun into a million parts. I already put the extra in the spare tire compartment and I always keep tools in my jeep since they have certain habits.
    Thanks for the interest and advice.
