Re: belt


Guys,

How to replace the driving belt? I couldn't find any information which explains the method used in our exy to replace the belt.

Is it only a matter of loosening the alternator?

Re: belt


Checking the manual, it looks like there is no need to loosen the alternator, only lever back the tensioner and hold it in place.

Re: belt


Jalal you are not looking hard enough mate.
Go to the index and lookup Alternator where it will direct you to another section for removing the drive belt.

Shawn is correct.
Just loosen the tensioner to remove the drive belt.

Re: belt


Replaced the pulley drive yesterday arvo, after doing the butterflys (see that thread under recalls). It was pretty easy, I'd previously looked in the ESM to see what to do.

I used the Dayco of course, from Repco for about $68.

Remove all the plastic from the drivers side inner wheel arch that will let you get at the front of the engine - 3 bolts and about 4 clips.

You'll also need a torch or flouro work light of some kind and a stumpy screwdriver.

First step is to lay down under the car study where the existing belt goes and how the tensioner works from underneath - everything is done from underneath, you can't get at anything from the top.

Put a long ring spanner on the tensioner and lever it back, the whole belt will instantly come loose and probably get in the way. Use the stumpy screwdriver you already have in the other hand to put through the holes provided in the tensioner from the back (you'll see what I mean when you try it). I couldn't get the screwdriver in from the front due to space, but back is easy.
Rip out the old belt, and in your wonder and amazement at how easy that was on a modern vehicle, promply forget which pullys the belt went around which way!
No probs, it's easy to work out. Or print out one of the pics from the ESM or this thread.
Whack the new belt in, double check it's all going to seat OK and release the tensioner, dropping your stumpy screwdriver into an inaccessible position on the aircon compressor.

Do as the manual suggests - get a spanner or big shifter and turn over the motor a couple of revs (from the bolt on the front of the crank pully, clockwise direction, car out of gear) and watch the belt carefully to make sure it is seated OK on all pullies.
Put all the plastic back in place, practise standing up again, and start the engine - have a look in past the alternator and you'll be able to see the belt running smoothly around the tensioner.

Easy.

Re: belt


Hi,

I just went to Autobarn for a new belt. The owner sold me a brand "Gates", Micro-V AT. He recommended to get the 6PK2240 instead of the 6PK2250. That brand didn't have a 2245 available. It was $60. He said I could return it if I couldn't fit it on...

That size should be okay too right? Anyone bought Gates before?

Cheers

Re:


Gates are a very well known and respected brand in Australia
I have used Gates Timing Belts and Drive Belts on previous vehicles without any issues.

I recently bought a spare drive belt for mine to do sometime in the future and I bought a REPCO branded one as it only cost me $[sign in to see URL] where as the Gates one was $[sign in to see URL] (I get Trade prices at Repco)

6PK2250
The 6 is the number of ribs on the belt
PK is like the standard width measurement
as for the 2240 vs 2250 difference - that is the length overall of the belt in mm..

So, if you have a 2240, it will be 10mm shorter than the correct belt....
It may still fit, it may be a little too short... you will only know once you go to install it...

Re: belt


The idea was to have one with me in case of emergency when I'm in remote areas, so if it's too tight to fit on I'm just as screwed as with no emergency spare.

But I'm not gonna trade it in yet. At some point I'm going to replace my old belt, either along the road or in a garage, but when I do I'll let you guys (and girls) know how it worked out with the 2240mm.

So btw, you've done a drive belt on an xtrail before right? Do you have to remove the front tire and wheel bay cover to gain access to the belt?

Re:


Yes, removing the drivers front Wheel & Tyre and splash guards etc will give you the access needed to change the belt
