Sometimes you can pry it on, like put a wrench on the alternator pulley and spin it on like a bicycle chain, or if its too tight, its the wrong belt. (too short)

    NAPA states "do not pry" on their packaging, and I confirmed on their website that it is the right belt. I don't know what's going on with this whole mess.

    either its not all the way loose, or its the wrong belt. you can get a belt thats longer. Sometimes these aftermarket parts are wrong.

  2. Plug in the alternator harness connector.
  3. Move the air conditioning compressor back into location.
  4. Install the radiator cooling fan and shroud.

Proper belt tension is important. A belt that is too tight may cause alternator bearing failure; one that is too loose will cause a gradual battery discharge and/or belt slippage, resulting in belt breakage from overheating.

REpace alternator belt


if you mean serpentine belt, there is a tensioner pulley that keeps it tight. remember how it goes between everything for when you put the new one on. use the tensioner pulley to relieve the tension (it will move inward towards the engine) and while holding the pulley, slip the old belt off. then fit the new one around everything else before the tensioner pulley. then pull the tensioner pulley inwards again, slip the new belt over the tensioner pulley, then let it out slowly. make sure that all of the cogs on the belt are in the right place of the pulleys (if they arent, it will most likey slip into place when the engines starts but still might not want to chance it)

1996 nissan maxima... i have properly reinstalled my alternantor and noticed that my belt pulley tensioner is screeching. what is the proper order of washers on the pulley bolt?


Its likely the tenisinor was the cause of the alternator problem in the first place its a big ware part leeding cause of belt failure water pump alternator power steering and ac compressers . You would be wise to replace it 96 likely has never been done .And its far cheaper then all of the above parts 20 to 30 dollars

What should the correction tension be for a 1995 Nissan pickup & how do you check it?


as a rule of thumb, you should have no more then 10mm of up/down movement of the belt in the longest belt run ( the longest distance between any of the pulleys the belt runs in).
Simply grip the belt bewteen a figner and thumb and push and pull the belt in line with itself and the pulleys.
Too little tension will cause charging and water pump issues.
Too much tension will cause early failure of the alternator or water pump bearings..
