+1 on that :bigthumb:
Sombody has to have some tip or input on how to renove this damn thing! Made my second attempt over the weekend after purchasing a snap on low profile 14mm socket. No luck getting to the tension pulley. Tried using a pry bar and slightly moving engine to slip that bad boy on...nothing! :gotme

Here is one answer, http://www.justanswer.com/nissan/58ikm- ... owing.html


From this site, which you have to pay for, http://www.automotix.net/autorepair/diy ... re_sb.html
Remove right front wheel.
Remove bolts from right-hand front fender protector assembly, then remove fender protector.
Rotate or lift belt tensioner arm clockwise, using a suitable tool to relieve tension from drive belt. Do not rotate belt tensioner...
Here is another, http://www.fixya.com/cars/t13078917-rep ... 009_nissan

It's easy and you won't need a pry bar.
Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
For putting the belt on: Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
The tensioner pulley is on a spring loaded arm. Get your socket on the center nut of this pulley.
Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt on the final pulley.
Slowly release the tension.
You're done!
Mike

This is for the 2011 Rogue, I assume it's the same. Read it through as there is a warning about what not to do with the tensioner.

I had changed my serpentine belt because a squirrel chewed through belt and he was wedged between frame and engine. When I started it, the engine sounded like I threw a rod. I got a Dayco belt from the local parts store and spent several hours trying to get it on. The belt was just too short. I went to the local Nissan dealer and brought the OEM belt and the part number on the belt says the total length in MM. The nissan belt was several MM longer (I believe 3 or 4 MM) and the nissan belt fit perfectly without any effort. I used a wrench on the tensioner and saftey wired it to the frame while I routed the belt. There is a indicator on tensioner saying if belt is worn. If I did get the aftermarket belt on I would have been too tight and out of limits for the tensioner. Hope this helps... Use Nissan Belt and Wire wrench in place.

I took pictures when I changed my engine oil and CVT oil. The picture shows how to install wrench onto tensioner. After you get wrench on find some wire and pull it toward the control arm and tie it off to it. One suggestion is to place new belt behind wire so when it comes time to put on new belt its ready to install. I didn't do that and I had to undo the wire and place belt behind the wire.

1. Remove the wheel:

2. Remove all the plastic clips and plastic covers including fender cover:

3. Get a wrench with socket 14mm and turn tensioner clockwise to loose/remove the belt:

4. Put everything back in reverse order with new belt:

5. Check for noise, belt correct position etc.
6. Have a pizza:

are you all using OE belt or any aftermarket belt out there that would correctly fit our Rogue? From what I have read, the equivalent Gatorback runs smaller than the original.

I used the oem belt. There are some comments that some aftermarket belts, even though they say they fit the rogue, are actually a few millimeters shorter than oem. Some have had trouble getting them on due to this.

Bought my belt from the local dealer as it was the same price as getting it online about $45
Part #11720-JG30B

One word of advice you may want to get some extra clips before you do this; at least 4 of mine just broke apart taking them out.

Thanks everyone for this helpful info. I'm replacing mine after work today. I keep reading that some of the aftermarket ones are too short. Does anyone know the MM length of the OEM part? I can't find it anywhere online.

There's a NAPA right by my work, and they have an aftermarket belt for 32 bucks. I was thinking of getting this. It's 1820 MM length, 6 ribs. Will this be a proper replacement?

Do not underestimate that task. Although it may seem as simple as "remove tire-remove splash guard-turn the bolt counter clockwise" it is not that simple.

Read the Factory Service Manual Section EM, page 15.

First of all, I would like to thank you for posting that link. SUPER helpful to have that manual! Thank you very much.

Second, is there part of the task you are referring to in particular? I reviewed the service manual, and it appears to be quite simple as described. Is there part of it that's particularly difficult?

I didn't find any part particularly difficult but as Qashqai pointed out read the fsm before doing this so you know what to expect. For example in the FSM it says it you turn the tension-er the wrong direction it would need to be replaced!!
One word of advice when putting the new one on look at the picture in the FSM so you know how to route it.

I went with OEM so I wouldn't have any issues and as someone else pointed out they got an after market one and it was too short.
If you have a dealer near you I would just stop in there.
Everythingnissan.com has it; they add like $14 to ship.

Ok, here's my update:

It was a rather simple repair. I had watched a YouTube video that made it look a lot more difficult (and the guy couldn't hold the camera still).

The most time-consuming part was pulling out the fender liner, really. Once that liner is out, you have excellent access to the auto-tensioner. Having a helper was definitely a plus, as he was able to maintain wrench pressure on the auto-tensioner while I routed the belt from above. We took our time and stopped to chat here and there, and were done in about an hour.

I'm at 33.3k miles, and the belt wasn't looking horrible, but Firestone told my wife it was in a dire state, so I figured peace of mind is worth thirty-two bucks at Napa.

Here's the belt:

And here's the part from Napa:

The price of OEM belt is 60 Canadian dollars +13% tax. I was planning to purchase OEM but Napa has %20 discount for CAA (Canadian branch of AAA) members. Do you think I should buy OEM or doesn't worth it?

Did anybody put the new Napa belt and old OEM belt on top of each other to verify the length difference?

I think I know why some people had bad experience with the aftermarket serpentine belts.

In NAPA Canada, there are two serpentine belt options to choose from:

1. Part number 25060711 (called "belt serpentine"): # of Ribs:6,Top Width (mm):20 mm,Outside Circumference (mm):1820 mm,Section:K,Top Width (in):.807",Outside Circumference (in):71.625"

2. Part number 6PK1805 (called "belt alternator): Attribute Length:1805mm,Top Width:21.36mm,# of Ribs:6 Ribs,Angle Degree:40

See the difference? Option 1 is 15 mm shorter...I believe Part number 25060711 is the OEM equivalent.

i thought i would give every one some info about my experience with getting my serpentine belt replace. About 2.5 years ago the dealership told me that my serpentine belt is in the yellow and they would monitor but i should consider replacing it. I didnt think much of it and told myself i would just ride it out and see what happens plus i didn't want to pay $196.88+taxes. So a few weeks ago i got a call from the dealership to replace that recall part (kick panel harness) that was a fire hazard. after they were done the service manager call and said i HAVE to replace the serpentine belt because it wasn't safe to drive my car. I declined and said i will get it done else where. I bought the part from the dealership (part #11720-JG30B)for $68.06. I called my local mechanic and he said he'll do it for $40. I attached the pic of the belt and some others just so people can see how much these thieves wanted. i think it was a good idea I replaced it. It was in pretty bad shape. So if the dealership offers to change it for you u can easily either do it yourself or u can wait another 2 years before you really need it.
