Replace a serpentine belt on a Nissan NP200

Nissan NP200 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.

Adjusment of alternator belt

There is no adjustment, engine has a spring loaded belt tensionor. If belt is squealing check to make sure tensior moves freely, this is the small pulley below the power steering pump. If tensioner moves freely replace belt. These tensionor are very difficult to change as access to mounting bolts is very tight.

What are the chances that a timing tensioner arm would wear out in 50,000 kilometers? Does a new arm have a groove down the middle of it? I had the tensioner replaced a year ago and then it failed again...

What happens on this make and model engine is believe it or not it is not a tensionor problem. The problems is the vehicle is using oil, 99% of the times the oil is going past the rings. When the engine gets low on oil it starts to leave heavy varnish/sludge deposits thur out the engine. The timing chain tension is operated off oil pressure, when oil pressure gets weak due to low oil level tensionor cannot keep enough pressure on chain guide. Chains start slapping around and break a guide, usually it's the one between water pump and right cam gear. Begin oil consumption testing and deytermine how much oil your burning. You can either repair or just keep it full of oil. The problem with keeping it full and not fixing is that all the fresh oil all the time tends to loosen up the varnish/sludge deposits and then it restricts the oil pick up screen. Hope this helps. I've seen hundreds of these engines do the same thing and they all have one thing in common, oil burning past the rings!!!!!!!!!
