The belt tensioner is located under the timing cover. It is 1 1/2 round and about 3/4 inch with a groove in the middle where a bolt is tightened. When you remove the timing cover you will see the timing belt, the camshaft sprocket and the crankshaft gear. The timing belt goes around these components.. The belt tensioner is loosened and the new timing belt is placed. The sproket also has to be replaced if it is broken. Be careful to notice the little marks that are aligned on the sproket and above the camshaft.. They can be small arrows that have to be aligned exactly the way you took them off. replace the belt and you tighten the tensioner so the belt fits snug and tighten the bolt in the middle of the belt tensioner. It is not too difficult, if you know something about mechanics. If you don't, you will be better of taking it to somebody who does know.

I assume you are talking about the outter tie rod.
Jack up and support the car and remove the wheel.
Then you see the tie rod. Their is a lock nut agenst the tie rod. Break this nut loose. It is normally a 17-21mm nut.
Now remove the cotter pin (if applied)and break loose the castle nut.
Now use a ball joint splitter or a tie rod splitter and pop the tie rod out of the knuckle.
DO NOT HIT THE KNUCKLE WITH A HAMMER. If memory serves me this car has a aluminum knuckle and if you can damnage it if you hit it with a hammer.
Now just spin the tie rod off and install the new one.
Take it to your local shop to have the alighnment done.

I had this question initially. However, the Nissan Sentra (starting in 2007) has an electric Power Steering. It DOES NOT need any power steering fluid. The electric power steering is suppose to give you better fuel efficiency and lower maintenance cost.
