How to change a altornator on a 95 nissan maxima


first you need to release the belt tensioner, and remove the belt. Disconnect the battery, and remove electrical plug on aternator. Then simply unbolt the old alternator, bolt in the new one, re-attach the the electrical plug, connect the battery back up, and re-install the belt. FYI this would be a good time to replace the serpentine belt.

Air conditioner belt 3.5 eng


A/C Belt To Remove:
NOTE: The A/C drive belt self tensioner is NOT a dynamic tensioner. After adjustment the tensioner bracket bolts are tightened. The torsion spring is no longer responsible for tensioning the A/C belt. The torsion spring is only used for initial belt tensioning.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions at the beginning of this section.
  2. Remove alternator/power steering belt to gain access to A/C belt:
  3. Loosen, do not remove tensioner locking bolt and pivot bolt.
  4. Insert 1/2" drive breaker bar into square opening on belt tensioner.
  5. Rotate tensioner counterclockwise until belt can be removed from pulleys.
  6. Slowly rotate tensioner clockwise to relieve spring load. NOTE: Clean all foreign debris from belt pulley grooves. The belt pulleys must be free of oil, grease, and coolants before installing the drive belt.
    NOTE: Belt replacement under any or all of the following conditions is required:
    • Excessive wear
    • Frayed cords
    • Severe glazing
  7. NOTE: Poly-V Belt system may develop minor cracks across the ribbed side (due to reverse bending). These minor cracks are considered normal and acceptable. Parallel cracks are not
    NOTE: Do not use any type of belt dressing or restorer on Poly-V Belts.
