Need belt routing sequence or what im not sure how to help , if you have the belt on the right way there should be a diag on the waterpump shroud , other than that if that is gone ck local auto parts store you have to take a 3/8s drive ratchet to pull back the tensioner to load the belt i usually load the belt on all pulleys except the idler pully then i preload the tensioner and slide the belt under that pulley last , im thnking you have a 3.1 or 3.4 litre engine

LOOSE BELT MORE LIKELY YOU HAVE A BAD BELT TENSIONER.A BAD BELT TENSIONER WILL CAUSE BELT TO SLIP.WHEN THAT HAPPENS ALTERNATOR CANT SPIN FAST ENOUGH TO KEEP BATTERY CHARGE.AND IF YOUR WATER PUMP DONT SPIN FAST ENOUGH ENGINE WILL OVERHEAT AND YOU WILL HAVE POWER STEERING PROBLEMS ALSO HAVE DRIVE BELT TENSIONER CHECK OUT AT A GARAGE..

Removing a serpentine belt to change an alternator


Easiest way is to release the tension and remove the belt from the alternator and secure it with a bungee cord to someplace that will hold it around the other pulleys. The decal showing the routing should be on the underside of the hood in case it comes off.

I want to change my thermostat in my audi


the thermostat is located behind the timing belt so you should think about changing the timing belt, water pump, and thermostat. ---- Thermostat is on the back of the cyl head up at the bulkhead, follow top rad hose back and you will find thermostat housing. If you have to ask, you probably shouldn't be attempting it. It involves a lift, draining the coolant, removing the front bumper, putting the core support into the service position, removing the belts, moving the alternator, loosening the mounting plate that supports the fan clutch, power steering pump etc. - all so you can get to the thermostat housing! If you had a Jaguar, changing a thermostat would take less than fifteen minutes. Instead, the Germans audi car made it a four hour job for a professional too.

Nissan Sentra/Pulsar/NX 1982-1996 Repair Guide
The alternators for Pulsar and Sentra have not changed much over the years. However, the 1987-88 alternators for Pulsar and Sentra have a different internal diode assembly.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery terminal.
  2. Disconnect the 2 lead wires and connector from the alternator.
  3. Loosen the drive belt adjusting bolt and remove the belt.
  4. Unscrew the alternator attaching bolts and remove the alternator from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Install the alternator and retaining bolts loosely.
  2. Install the belt and connect the wiring.
  3. Adjust the belt as outlined in . Torque the retaining bolts to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).

I hope help you with this (rated this help).
