Replacement part for 1997 Nissan Pathfinder (SE)

I need to replace the part (step rail??) that you step onto when entering the vehicle. It has become rusted. I have tried to locate the part online but I do not know what this part is called. The closest I have come is to find replacment nerf bars however none look like the original part on the truck. Can you help???

Tensioner bolt bottoms out on idler pulley (belt for Poly-V A/C & Idler) on 2000 Nissan Pathfinder SE

Pulleys also wear.
You've changed the belts - a workshop would then change that particular pulley, if asked to do so.

Start your engine, then put a few drops of water onto that pulley. Does the squealing noise disappear? If so, the pulley is slightly worn in the groove - and this happens to all vehicles.

Your option is to either replace that pulley or use a spray-on anti squeal compound.

Did you check your fuel lines for breaks or kinks? Any electrical harness under there where hit? Like a fuel pump connector?
You might want to test fuel pressure at the test port on the fuel rail.

Start by having the clutch adjustment checked by a knowlegdable mechanic. If you need to replace the clutch, yes it all needs to be replaced, and the flywheel resurfaced.

Meanwhile, quit driving the unit as you are overheating the clutch and flywheel by slipping.
