This alternator has two mounting bolts, one on top (adjuster) and one at bottom (main bolt) You need to untight the top one but not completely, take the poly belt of. Than take the bottom bolt out and remove top one when holding the alternator. Put the new one in place but this time use the bottom bolt first, do not tight it completely, than put the belt on the pulley and use the top bolt. You will need to tight the bottom bolt, than pull the alternator with some bar but gentle to get the belt tight, hold it and than tight the top bolt.

SOURCE: Check Engine Light 1996 Nissan Maxima

There is a silver box underneath the center console, just to the right of the gas pedal.

Pull off the plastic cover (it has two plastic fasteners. It will go back on).

Peel back the plastic film covering the screw.

Put the key in and turn the ignition switch on, but do not strt the car (all the warning indicator lights should go on).

Turn the screw all the way clockwise for two or three seconds and turn turn it back. Repeat just to be sure.

Turn the key off. When you turn the key back on the Check Engine light should be off.

Replace the plastic film over the screw and replace the plastic panel.

My 1996 Nissan Maxima's Alternator


Just because they're new doesn't mean that they work. I would find an auto parts store that does free electrical system checks before spending a dime elsewhere. I've gone through 4 batteries in 3 years because of bad products. And have most recently had to replace a brand new alternator because it, too, was defective.

How do I replace the altenator belt on a 1996 Nissan Maxima?


Just loosen up the BOLT in the alternator, the one that holds the bracket, and u can move/slide the ALTERNATOR assembly. If the A/C compressor belt is blocking the removal of belt, loosen up the compressor and slide it to free up the belt! Now u could replace the alternator belt!
Installing will be easier!

I have a 1996 Nissan Maxima. The altenator and battery have been replaced less than a year ago. It still will not start with out a jump in the cold weather. .


Have an auto electrician CHECK ur HARGiNG system! Either ur battery got problem or the alternator! Alternator should have 13 to 14 volts output while running! Taah!

4 alternator replacements in 4 years 1996 maxima


Has anyone looked at the connectors to the alternator? I remember these types of stories from work, alternator after alternator, found 2 things to be the problem, one is the connector to the alternator was defective, makes a poor connection and destroys the new alternator, the other is very poor quality rebuilds from Kragen, Auto Zone and the like, use a factory rebuild, they cost more but they are just as good as a new one.
