How do I replace a pulley tensioner on a 2001 Nissan altima

The tension pulley is nothing but an idler wheel that puts tension on the belt to prevent it from slipping. The bearings in the wheel dry out or the wheel cracks. If you look you will see it. The serpentine belt wraps around it. It is not a pulley that is attached to any component. You will have to use a tension er bar or ratchet with a long handle to push down on it you will see that the bracket it is attached to will pivot when you put on the pressure. A bolt goes through the center of the pulley. You will have to remove the bolt to get the pulley off. Some are reverse threaded so be careful. Replace it with the right size pulley. If the pulley is plastic, see if you can get a metal one of comparable size. (NAPA parts are ood replacements) Reverse the removal directions and reinstall belt. The routing diagram is usually in your manual or on a sticker in the engine compartment by the radiator

Charging & Brake lights flash, belt is intact (1997 Altima)

Suggest replacing alternator if charging is an issue, also the battery as a bad cell will normally kill the regulator due to non stop charging condition.

if your idler pulley is squealing get it replaced before that belt locks up, cuts loose and hurts stuff under your hood. At 2000-4000 rpm that belt will grab and wrap up alot of things very quickly if it wants.

Hi guys. i have a nissan sunny fb14. when i start the engine the fanbelt makes a whirring noise then it quietens down. any suggestions.

You have a loose belt or it is glazed. The reason why it quites down after a while is because the belt heats up, and cause better grip on the pulley. Solution: replace belt and tighten properly. If the problem persist, then it is the the idler bearing that is going bad. If it is equiped with that.

RE: 2001 Nissan Altima air conditioner

Sounds to me like you need the alternator idler pulley. Look at it and see if it has a big washer covering portion of the pulley, or if the washer is inside the pulley. If its inside, than you have an old pulley. Replace it with the one, that has the big washer in the middle of pulley. You do have another idler for the A/C compressor. Those I have seen fail also. But 80% of the time its the alternator idler pulley.
