Question about 1985 Nissan 300ZX
You will need ratchet and socket set, something to help hold the alt.(alternator) when tightening the belt ( like a pry bar). Loosen the bolts around the alt.. now it will move, and you need that prying tool now. use it to move the alt. so the belt has about an eighth of an inch of play. holding it there, tighten the bolts back (nice and snug). Never over tighten the bolts, they can snap on you. now start the car, and you should see the belt is not slipping any more. This job will take you about 20 to 30 minutes.

After adjustment is satisfactory, tighten the idler pulley bolt, and then tighten the adjustment bolt.
Reconnect the negative battery cable.
When replacing more than 1 belt, it is a good idea to make note or mark what belt goes around what pulley; this will make installation easier if you mix up the belts.
