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!JMed wrote:+1 on thatScooter71 wrote:Great vidoe, pretty much exactly how I do mine also. ::hint hint:: a video on serpentine belt removal and change would be awesome!!
Here is another, http://www.fixya.com/cars/t13078917-rep ... 009_nissanRemove 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...
MikeGet 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.

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.KTM144sx wrote:Great post! Thanks for taking the time to do this. I just replaced my belt and it was easier than I thought it would be.
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.darylzero wrote:Bought my belt from the local dealer as it was the same price as getting it online about $45
First of all, I would like to thank you for posting that link. SUPER helpful to have that manual! Thank you very much.Qashqai wrote: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.
