Question about 1987 Nissan Maxima

I987 Nissan Maxima Idler Pulley Installation

The A/C idler pulley flew off my '87 Maxima at speed (parts strewn alongside road). The shaft from the engine is still there, but nothing else. The belt it tensions also drives the water pump, so the car is unusable. I ordered the idler pulley repacement assembly (P/N 11925-16E01), but it came with no installation instructions. My factory repair manual also does not cover this repair (not the first repair not covered by the factory manual, by way). Can someone tell me how to install this assembly (note, it is the entire assembly, not just the bearing)?

SOURCE: Replace idler arm pulley

An idler arm is a steering component found on vehicles without rack and pinion steering. Your referring to an idler pulley. To replace: remove the belt, remove the bolt from the center of the pulley, replace the pulley and reinstall the belt.

SOURCE: my idler pulley is making a squeaky light grinding niose.

belt dressing / new belt / but the grinding means the idler puller is going to grenade soon and you wont have any belt on it so go buy a new idler and change it right away or you risk the engine overheating by not turning the water pump .if it's grinding greasing the old one wont do much help .damage is already done in the bearing .and there sealed bearings . you just throw away the old 1.

I have a 1995 Nissan sentra I'm trying to install the idler pulley. When I tighten the nut it freezes the pulley. Is there a cover on the back of the pulley I'm missing? The parts I have are the nut,


check for a flat washer at the back of the pulley that holds the bearing carrier away from the mounting bracket. If there is no carrier that the bearing is on as it may fit directly onto the shaft then check for a spacer that goes against the inner part of the bearing and the mounting bracket that positions the pulley in line with the belt.

Remove & replace the entire pulley assy.bracket & all

Buy from dealers parts dept

You do not need a gear puller

If you do, then you have a lot of damage to the brg, as you said,
& you replace every thing it attaches to ,as I said

You may have to drop the sub frame or raise the engine or
both, to get clearance

Noise on belt tensioner or idler pulley


Carefully check the condition of the belt, the tensioner, and the idler pulley. I had the same thing happen and once I knew where to look, I could see that my idler pulley bearings were bad (understatement...they were GONE!)

Your idler pulley and tensioner need to look even and straight and not leaning in or out. A sure sign of a problem is if one or the other leans in toward where the tension from the belt would be on it.

The best way to check is to buy, rent, or borrow a serpentine belt wrench to take the pressure off and then try and wiggle the tension and idler pulley. If you feel any play, replace as soon as possible. I dragged my feet and ten days after I heard the noise, my idler pulley flew apart right as I pulled into work.

Why belt keeps shredding


usually due to a bad bearing, or from resistance due to a frozen or failing assemble, as in power steering, alternator, or an idler. The best way to determine is to remove the belt and check all pulleys for play and resistance.

The pulley system is turning sluggish just replace two alternators


Your pulley system has a idler. This is a round and the back of your belts ride on it to keep tension on the belts, replace the idler pulley.

How to change alternator belt

alternator and air conditioning compressor
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Loosen the idler pulley bolt.


The replacement of the inner belt on multi-belted engines may require the removal of the outer belts.
To replace a drive belt, loosen the adjusting and mounting bolts of the component which the belt is driving. Move the component inward to relieve the tension on the drive belt.
Slip the belt off the component pulley and match the new belt with the old belt for length and width. The old belt will be slightly longer. After a new belt is installed correctly, adjust the tension.
  1. Turn the adjustment bolt at the top of the idler pulley bracket. Clockwise rotation will tighten the belt; counterclockwise will loosen it.
  2. Keep the idler pulley bolt snug (but not tight) while adjusting belt tension. The adjustment bolt should turn with moderate force.

After adjustment is satisfactory, tighten the idler pulley bolt, and then tighten the adjustment bolt.


Reconnect the negative battery cable.

When replacing more than 1 belt, it is a good idea to make note or mark what belt goes around what pulley; this will make installation easier if you mix up the belts.

My idler pulley is making a squeaky light grinding niose.


Any Auto Parts store or even a Wallmart may have a WD 40. I would first try to spray this behind or right where you see the Axel of this Idle pulley.
Unfortunately it may be getting old and dried out.
If you have any grease or even - sounds funny - Vaseline - try smearing this on where the Axel meet's the round pulley.
