I was prepping to change the Serpentine Belt/Drive Belt in my '09 Versa via instructions from FSM on Nico club, but I figured I'd scroll through my Haynes manual as well before doing the swap. It looks like the info in the Factory Service Manual may be for a 1.6L engine. It says to loosen the Idler pulley bolt & the Idler pulley lock nut, pull the belt & swap, retighten.
However, when I scrolled through the Haynes, it says for a 1.8L model: "Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise using a wrench on the pulley bolt to release tension on the drivebelt. The tensioner can be locked in position by inserting a drill bit or other metal rod into the lock holes. **Caution: Do NOT loosen the drivebelt tensioner pulley bolt or it will be necessary to replace the entire tensioner with a new one."
This sounds pretty straight forward, but all the advice I was getting centered around loosening the pulley lock nut & adjustment bolt. I just wanted to see i anyone listening/reading has changed the belt on a 1.8L model, and can confirm for me.
Thanks in advance for any help!
