Question about 2001 Nissan Sentra
Ok. There should be a tension pulley on the engine that the belt runs through. You can notice it because it is not attached to anything except the engine block or a support bar. You can lift if up or push it down with a wrench or socket and wrench. It moves so it can give you space to put the belt on. After the belt is on, release teh pulley and it will tighten up (tension) your belt and your done.
If by chance you do not have this tension pulley, then you have to only put one bolt in the altenator, put the belt on like normal, pry the altenator in place with the belt on it, then put the last bolt in.
