FYI this belt has been great so far, Bando 7PK2020A.

I replaced mine at 115K miles, I had a little noise at start up and it is now gone. My tensioner indicator lined up perfect with the new belt. On a side note my tensioner was a 1/2 drive and not 3/8 drive like I originally thought.

Thank you very much!

Haven't seen that one! I was thinking of trying the new Gates RPM belt. Looks very promising. GATES K070795RPM

Looks like the RPM belt supercedes the blue micro-v belt. Should be good. I track the blue belt with no issues. I also drive in the bitterly cold north. No squeaks on cold starts, which is like 5 months out of the year.

Wheres the best place to start when placing the new belt in? I'm about to install the new idler pulleys tomorrow and install my new belt. Was wondering which pulley is best to start with. Thanks!

I'd start by releasing the belt. There is a video on youtube for it. This gives you free reign to work on the pulleys without tension on them.

If you are doing the tensioner as well, leave that for last. I installed the idlers, then the belt, then the tensioner.
​​​​​​
Without the tensioner you have a little more room and because the belt goes behind the tensioner, it just makes it easier.

Just be sure the belt is in the grooves on the lower left (passengers side) as it can be hard to see.

Yeah I read on here that Bando OEMs the belts for Nissan/Infiniti. Not sure if anyone else can verify.

Hey Entcee I just replaced my tensioner as well and was wondering if this is normal.


My tensioner line is in range but when I started the car it is now out of range. Is this normal?

Interesting.... It should be between the left 2 marks. If I remember right, mine was just barely to the left of the middle mark (after engine start). It is still in spec, but if the belt stretches at all, it might not be.

Did you get the Gates tensioner?
