    Default A Question for the V9X Manne.

    I have a V9X Navara currently at 120k km. I believe the auxiliary belt was never replaced (got the bakkie at 100k km). For preventive maintenance I wish to change out the belt, but the workshop manual insists that the auto tensioner and 2x idler pulleys needs to be replaced as well.

    Who has done this before? Have you replaced everything or belt only.

    Ek reken ek gaan net die belt vervang maar ek sal graag eers verdere inligting van die wyse Gryses wil ontvang.

    Rather replace, the cheapest overhauled v9x motor in SA is R100 000 and you have to trade in your old motor.

    Otherwise a new motor from nissan is R384 000(don't believe me? Give nissan a call)

    So rather do everything as per the service schedule.Mine is on 262 000km and still happy.

    And.... A pile of rust some say is a 60 series with two ventilators to help it move along.

    I agree, I do not wish to take chances with this machine. I would then rather replace.

    But I am curious and wish to learn more; at that mileage you should have replaced the auxiliary belt, with the said components at least twice already (according to the workshop manual - every 100k km).

    I presume the workshop instructions is to change all the idlers/pulleys with the auto tensioner as a fail safe for deaf/non-technical drivers who can't hear a bearing going bad - or am I wrong?

    How many V9X owners out there (especially the 200k km club) have replaced all these components and not just the belt?

    The idler pulleys themselves get worn and can damage belt. Not just a case of bearings and you might not hear them in time. Some go quickly.

    Im not familiar with v9x but idler pulleys in general are a fairly easy diy.

    The front of a v9x is rather tight, the only way to work easily would be to remove the radiator then theres more than enough space.

    Thanks to my height I only removed the fan and the fan cowling then replaced all the necessary parts.

    All parts are agents only so prep your wallet.

    Aux belt replacement is every 100k km.

    Thanks Swartjan,

    I just did the radiator flush and filled it with the recommended coolant. I will be doing it the way you did it then.
