I don't believe there is an idler pulley on that model, just a tensioner pulley
This means you have a 4.0L. There is no other way.....
Since There is no tensioner pulley you have to loosen your alternator.
I think it is the same as my 98 and you put a wrench on the bolt at the center of the tensioner pulley and push away from the belt.
Begin by loosening the tensioner pulley on the front of your 1996 Nissan Maxima engine. Slide the tensioner pulley to the right. The old power steering belt will become loose and can be removed. Put the new power steering belt on. Tighten the power steering belt by sliding the tensioner pulley to the left.
Near the top of the serpentine belt path is a belt tensioner; it is spring loaded and has a shinney pulley on it. Insert a wrench into this tensioner and pull against it and the tension will be released so you can replace your belt. I am assuming your question is about the serpentine belt.
See "Related Questions" below for a discussion regarding the serpentine belt tensioner and pulley. Pretty comprehensive coverage.
There is no tensioner pully. The Power Steering pump has a moving bracket that adjusts the belt tension. It has a long adjustment bolt. You have to remove the air cleaner and housing to reach it successfully. Funny, mine has a belt tensioner pulley under the power steering pump, which is tightened by a long adjustment bolt. So does every other 1996 Cherokee I've worked on!
The serpentine belt you can look at the diagram in your engine compartment for actual routing. The tensioner mounts to the left side of the engine. You need to unbolt the whole assembly. Actually, the belt can be loosened by tightening the bolt of the tensioner pulley. When fully tightened, the pulley will act as a swivel.
We recently replaced the serpentine belt on our 2003 Chevrolet Tracker. We were able to place a wrench (I believe it was 9/16") on the tensioner pulley and apply pressure so the pulley released tension on the belt. This however did no allow enough slack to install the new belt so we removed the idler pulley at the top center of the engine. With the idler pulley removed we were able to route the belt and with the tension released on the tensioner pulley, routed the belt under the idler pulley and reinstalled the idler pulley, then released the tensioner pulley and the belt was installed. Be sure to note the exact route of the old belt before removal so the new belt follows the same path. Hope this helps.

You have to remove the belt first, this is easiest with a tensioner tool. Then the nut that holds it to the bracket is on the backside of the tensioner and needs to be done from the bottom.

It should have an tensioner pulley on it. A spring loaded arm that puts pressure against the belt as it travels. You may need to replace the pulley and spring if it is failing and allowing the belt to slip off.
there is no way to tighten your belt it has an automatic belt tensioner if it is making noise it may be the tensioner or the belt also check to see if it routed correctly

on a 96 (3.1 V6) it's a side mount it is on the passenger side of the car on the side of the engine, very close to the fender. the tensioner wheel will accept either an open end wrench or a 1/2 inch or larger pull bar. You will need a pull bar to change the tensioner or the belt, you can rent them from many autoparts stores.
