How do I release the tension in the serpentine belt?

I have a Nissan Sentra 1996, the GA16DE Engine (which means I have the 6 Belt pully system because of my A/C and Idler...). The Generator (Alternator) is what I need to get off! How do I release the tension in the Serpentine Belt to remove and replace the Alternator?

How do i release the tension on a 2005 nissan sentra altinator


First look at the diagram that is located in the engine compartment somewhere that shows the routing of the serpentine belt. it should show you which one is the tension idler. All you have to do is place a socket on the nut of that pulley and pull it to release the tension and therby releasing the belt so you can remove it. If you don't see a diagram draw a picture of the belt routing for reference. Look for the pully that does not work any of the visible components. I have included the link to a video that displays the procedure.

Changing the serpentine belt on an '02 nissan sentra


usually with a serpentine belt the trick is the tensioner. You need to be able to move it to release and replace the belt. the only other thing is the routing of the belt. several special tools are sold to move the tensioner. some are long bars with different types of attachments and some a ratcheting bars with the same attachments. Sometimes you can do it with a standard retchet but not always. Wish i could be of more help maybe you have a harbor freight in your area and they sell an inexpensive one you can use. good luck

Using a short socket of appropriate metric value, and a pry bar; Push the pry bar toward the firewall to loosen the tension on the belt. It's not that hard once you buck the initial spiral spring pressure of the tensionor. I have even pryed against the tensionor with a blunt heavy bar and moved it enough to free a belt.

How do I replace a serpentine belt for a 2001 nissan sentra.


Hi gj,

It's easy and you won't need a prybar.

  • Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
  • For putting the belt on: Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
  • The tensioner pulley is on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
  • Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
  • Slowly release the tension.
  • You're done

1997 nissan sentra serpentine belt


The serpentine belt has nothing to do with the brakes. It does have something to do with the alternator which charges the battery. the burning smell is probably the result of wasted grooves on the underside of the belt. it is the belt you see just inside the car engine compartment that turns the AC unit compressor pully , the alternator, etc.it is connected to the crankshaft pully.. If you have a front wheel drive it is located on the side of the engine compartment.
