Changing the fan belt on the Nissan Patrol Turbo Diesel is an appropriate fix if the part breaks, becomes worn down or looses tension. Hearing a whirring sound from the engine is a strong indicator of the belt going bad. You need a strong belt in place to help cool down the engine. The belt is connected to the side of the engine and looped through a series of pattern and turns on the pulley.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Turn the engine off, allowing it enough time to cool. This will save you the trouble of receiving burns while working under the bonnet.

  2. 2

    Pop the bonnet of the car and locate the fan belt attached to the side of the engine.

  3. 3

    Loosen the nuts that create tension on the connecting pulleys. To do this, press your wrench into the grooves of the nut to get a firm grip, and turn it hard to the left. The nut rotates with each counterclockwise turn. Loosen nuts one by one; do not to remove them.

  4. 4

    Pull the old belt off of the engine so that you can replace it with a new one.

  5. 5

    Fit the new belt in place at the points of connection. Keep the belt tight; do not allow any slack.

  6. 6

    Turn the wrench clockwise to re-tighten the nuts. The nuts must be tight so that the belt stays in place.

  7. 7

    Close the bonnet of the car and clean up your workplace.
