SERPENTINE BELT

2005 Nissan Altima

Engine Mechanical problem
2005 Nissan Altima 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90,000 miles

I need to change the serpentine belt on a 2005 Nissan Altima. It is not easy to get to from the top side. Does anyone have any suggestions or an easier method?

This is a tricky one as the clearence between the pulleys and the frame are tight. The easiest way to get a little room is to take off the passanger front wheel and remove the plastic cover that covers the oil filter area. Now work the belt from the top and bottom this will make it a bit easier.
