Re: 2002 maxima belt replacement
You will need to gain access behind the inner splash shield to get to your belts. This is relatively simple. It is helpful, also, if you can jack the front of the car up and take the Right Front wheel off and get it out of your way.
The splash shield is held on by plastic push pins that are easy to remove with a small flat head screwdriver by prying behind the head of the center section of the clip.
This should give you easy access to your belts.
Hope this is helpful!!

put car on axle stands next very important DISCONNECT BOTH BATTERY TERMINALS then remove under cover,right front wheel and fender liner,bumper and right headlight.next remove fan belt and tensioner disconnect alternator then loosen and remove bolts and remove alternator
The antenna part unscrews from the fender mount and can be replaced easily. The mount and wire needs to be fed through the fender and firewall, most times making it necessary to remove or partially remove the inner fender liner for access. Not difficult but a pain in the **** to do.
Hi there. The battery cell in this particular vehicle can be a little tricky to locate.You will first need to remove the right front tire. Next; Remove the right front inner fender liner. Once that is completed, you will expose the battery just to the inside of the right wheel fender liner. You can extract the battery at that point. Remember to remove the Neg- black post first, then, the Red+ positive post last.

not really,if you have a basic set of hand tools and some mechanical ability you should be able to do this yourself (your local auto parts store has rental tools for this job).there should be a belt routing diagram under the hood,on the radiator support or on the fender well area or possibly on the hood.if you do not find a diagram draw one on a piece of paper,without a diagram it is a real problem trying to properly route the belt.most have an idler/tensioner pulley that keeps the belt tight you will need to loosen this up,it is either held in place with a through bolt and then an adjusting bolt to tighten/loosen the belt,some are spring loaded and you need a wrench or a ratchet to take the tension off of it.once you have done this remove the old belt and install the new one in the reverse order.don't forget the routing diagram! good luck,I hope this helps get you through your belt change.
