Changing Serpentine Belt on a 2001 Pathfinder
Looked at the tensioner from the top of the engine and tried to get it relaxed from there. I have the special tool. Is this a spring tensioner or a adjustable tensioner? Normally I would put the tools open end wrench on the nut of the tensioner and pull back to release the tension on the pully. The nut just wants to loosen. Is there another location that the 3/8 square can socket can be inserted in? Is it easier to get to this from below? Guessing from below I will need to take off the rock guard or pan. BTW its the belt that controls the alternator side..
Thanks in advance.
