1995 sentra gxe v-belt replacement?

Ok. I brought my sentra gxe into a dealership to get oil change and 14 point check up. When I returned for the car, they said my vbelt is cracked and I should replace it as soon as possible. They quoted the price for the vbelt as 130 dollars?? I don't think that includes the service charge so I did some checking.

From the internet I saw it's called a multi rib belt? for 17 dollars?

I never done this before so can someone tell me if I could do this myself. from the manual I would need 2? v-belts. Anyway I live in the nyc so can someone tell me if I can get the necessary tools from a local strauss or something and do it myself. What tools might I need?

Thanks.

yeah you can do it yourself, pretty easy with basic hand tools. you can DL the factory service manual at a sticky on the top of this section.

yes, there are 2 belts, alternator & compressor and water pump & Powersteering pump. They are relatively cheap (17 is about right). I've never replaced a belt before, but I'm pretty sure it requires removal of the crank pulley. You'll need a torque wrench to make sure you torque it up right after the install.

no belts can be done just by loosening up the other pulleys. only needs hand tools.

great! thanks. About the v-belt. Would it be the same in any of the stores or is there a particular one I should get? Don't want to get the wrong one.

I went to my local autozone and they were going thru their computers and noticed that they no longer carry the vbelt for the car but the guy suggested a serpentine belt? Just wondering if anyone can tell me if that would be a problem? I read the serpentine lasts longer and removes the need to retension but since i'm a newbie, I have no clue about it.

that's probably a safe bet. Though the dealership near me is actually not so convenient or close.

It would be nice to get an answer anyway. I thought that was the point of this board?

it is but don't you think if you want the proper belt for your car, you wouldn't trust a guy trying to sell you a product that might work?
