For over a year I been having problems with the noise from the fan belt and the tensioner as others wrote about. I had this truck in the shop 4 times and they now came out with (I HOPE ) the revamped design for the new tensioner .

The TSB is 06072 and came out in Oct. Nissan told me they would contact me when the part is ready back in Aug. and I was waiting ever since.
I found the TSB just by accident and called them today about this and was told the part has been ready and to call my dealer for install.

Wonder if they were going to call at all.

So any of you with this problem check with you service dept to order the new tensioner and belt.

i went in for it and mentioned the tsb and just put a new belt on instead of replacing the tensioner. it is working for now but who knows how long it will hold up.

Can you describe the noise? Ive got a slight noise I can hear at idle, but i think I might have gotten mud in a pulley or somethin. I was just sorta hoping this could be it.

in my particular case it's a squeaking noise (coming from a pulley and/or belt) that sounds like it just needs some lube. unfortunately the lube solution hasn't worked well for any fellow members (with said problem) thus far.

I had my squeaky belt changed early this year. It did it three times for the day on separate occasions. Mine was a September '05 build.

Its funny that i just saw this thread. I was sitting in the drive through at Burger King today, and I heard the little squeak back again. Oh well. Lease vehicle. Dont feel like getting it fixed again.
