The alternator belt on my 95 nissan pathfinder


Check each pulley for chunks missing from them, rough surfaces on the pulley, and for smoothness of operation of the alternator, especially the bearings.
Check alignment of each pulley to make sure one hasn't moved on the shaft, as out of alignment pulleys put great stress on the belt. What sort of damage to the belt? Chunks taken out, one clean break, glazing and multiple small breaks on the inside???
When you have fixed the fault, replace belt with Gates Green Stripe for maximum length of service. Put it on, tighten it, run engine for 5 minutes, retighten and you are good to go....

How do u remove the alternader in a 1994 nissan pathfinder


NOTE: On some models, the alternator is mounted very low on the engine. On these models, it may be necessary to remove the gravel shield and work from beneath the truck in order to gain access to the alternator.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the alternator pivot bolt. Push the alternator inward and remove the drive belt.
  3. Pull back the rubber boots and disconnect the wiring from the back of the alternator.
  4. Remove the alternator mounting bolt, then withdraw the alternator from its bracket. To install:
  5. Position the alternator in its mounting bracket, then lightly tighten the mounting and adjusting bolts.
  6. Connect the electrical leads at the rear of the alternator.
  7. Adjust the belt tension.
  8. Connect the negative battery cable.
  9. Start the engine and check the charging system for proper operation.

How do i tighten alternator belt, it doesnt have adjusters like the rest of the belts


I believe this model has a automatic belt tensioner. It appears to be an idler pulley with a 5/8 or so size bolt in the middle. If you put a socket and ratchet on it and rotate it, the serpentine will release. If the belt is stretched and it can't be tightened, you may need a new belt. If not, then you may need a new tensioner. If this solution helped you, please don't forget to rate this high for me, thanks.

How to adjust alternator belt


If it's a v-belt vs. a serpentine belt, then look for a pivoting pulley accessory or idler pulley that can be loosened and tightened as far as the belt is concerned.

Many modern vehicles use a serpentine belt that has a tensioner that has a spring that tightens the belt automatically to the right tension and is released using a 1/2" breaker bar or equivalent.

Good luck on this repair.

2001 Pathfinder screeches on start


Remove the belt and check all pulleys for smooth operation. any binding at all is amplified when belt tension is applied. also check the belt itself...If it's glazed or dried out, it can be noisy.

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.
