Re: belt


While I don't think there's any mention of it requiring "replacement" in the service/maintenance schedule, I'm sure it is an item that would be inspected at service intervals for signs of damage (cracking/drying-out etc) and it may be re-tensioned (by loosening the alternator mounting bolt, levering it out to make the belt tighter, then re-tightening the mounting bolt).

Apart from the above, the only other signs that would indicate it needs to be replaced is the battery light illuminating on the dash-board, indicating the belt may have completely broken, meaning the alternator is no longer charging the battery. Note that this dash warning light may also come on if the voltage regulator (part of the alternator) fails.

Hope that helps!

Re: belt


Hi Bluexy,
Will we ever get to know your name ?

Here is the section about the drive belt from the service manual.
in or sign up to see linked image content--
As it states, there is no need to tension the belt, but if the indicator shows it is out of adjustment range or if there are cracks in the belt, it should be replaced.

Re: belt


We will be replacing the belt during the 120,000km (major) service whether it needs it or not.

I'll only use Dayco now.

Re: belt


Genuine Nissan would be OK if you can get it, but if the dealer is just stocking something ordinary (like B@$CH) I'd go the Dayco everytime.
Too many bad experiences with some other brands.

Re: belt


Dayco is just Dayco as far as I know.
Check:
]Dayco

On my old Datsun 1600 with heavily worked 2.1 litre motor and 120 amp alternator, a Dayco belt was the only thing that ever worked properly.
Other belts I tried required contant adjusting and always slipped anyway.
Bear in mind I was asking a bit much of any belt as it was the standard single V-Belt with higher load and higher constant revs than normal. Probably should have been a wider belt or multi-V, but Dayco fixed it.
