Re: 1996 nissan sentra
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.

Click on the following free direct Link. It has several Diagrams including the correct Serpentine/Drive Belt Diagram for your 1996 Nissan Sentra 1.6L DOHC In-Line 4-Cylinder. Included are Instructional and Directional Diagrams including how to remove/replace your Alternator Belt and set the proper Tension.
There is a belt tensioner somewhere in the loop that the serpentine belt travels. Look for a pulley that is not running anything (like the power steering, alternator, etc). Either in the center of that pulley or on the arm that the pulley is attached to will be a square hole that is the same size as the square peg in a 1/2" Ratchet. Put the ratchet in the hole and have in the loosen position and then pull. That will loosen the tensioner releasing the tension on the belt enough to get it off. Take note of the path of the belt so you know how to put it back on when you are putting it back together.

is there two belts on this car one for the alternator and a/c, and then one for the p/s. the one for the alternator look down from the alternator you will see a stand alone pulley not mounted to anything this is the tensioner/idler pulley loosen the nut on the pulley and then you will see an adjustment screw coming off of it turn it in and this loosens the belt up.
first of all you don't have to loosen the pulley,this will no solve the problem,well you already loosen the adjuster,good,bot thing you have not done i will tell you now,on the power steering pump where the belt pass there is also a bolt that hold it ,you must loosen that also,then after you will see the pump moving on the two position that means you will see the belt loosen on 1 position an d the position it will tight the belt,try that man.............
