Hi. What belts are you refering? I provided you a procedure on how to change the serpentine belt

  • 1
  • Find the lock nut and loosen it with the wrench.
  • 2 Loosen the adjustment bolt by turning it counter-clockwise until you can get the old belt off. The alternator has an adjustment bolt for the alternator belt, and the power steering component will have another adjustment bolt for its belt. The alternator adjustment bolt is often underneath the water pump hose.
  • 3 Install the new belt by putting it onto the pulleys in the same way that you got the old belt off. Nissan generally includes a belt routing diagram on a decal under the hood.
  • 4 Turn the adjusting bolt clockwise to get tension back on the belt.
  • 5 Make sure the belt is seated correctly on each pulley.
  • 6 Tighten the lock nut.

    How do I locate tension wheel to replace serpntne belts 04 sentra

    The serpentine belt runs everyting under the hood...easiest way to locate the tension wheel is to look at every other wheel that the belt runs to.

    Your tension wheel will be where the belt runs without being in a V channel, the tension wheel will be grooves to accomodate the belt.

    Hope this helps

    Replace timng belt

    well maybe there was some mis-communication there , nissan stopped using timing belts in sentra's and actually most all models in 2000 , maybe they were telling you that your serpentine belt needed changed ? but to answer your question , you do not have a timing belt in your 2002 nissan sentra . its a chain . thanks

    Chirp when starting

    You probably have the same issue as many Sentra owners- bleed off of fuel pressure. This would cause a hard starting condition when the vehicle sits overnight. See TSB# NTB05-052a for the procedure. This is a dealer-only repair (parts are not available aftermarket).

    As for the squeal, I've seen a LOT of this- the belts on these vehicles are less than excellent quality. The belts might look fine and some mechanics will say that they don't need to be replaced, but they are noisy and they can't be quieted up even by overtensioning them. Replacement is the only repair. Aftermarket belts can also be very noisy, so I would suggest Original Equipment (Nissan) belts.

    Hope this is helpful!!!
