I just changed one on a 98 Maxima. Jack up the right side so the tire is about 2 inches off the ground and put a stand under the frame rail. Take off the plastic splash shield off behind the tire. You have to loosen 3 bolts. The one that is the most pain is behing the Power Steering pump. You need to lay on your back way under the middle of the engine and use a 3/8 drive ratchet with an extention about 2 feet long and a swivel. I think it was a 14 mil. With a light you can see the 1 bolt on the back side of the power steering pump. Just loosen it a little. The other bolt is reached also from underneith behind the tire, I think it's a 12 mil. Then there is one on the bottom, that loosens and lets the power steering pump swing down and the big belt comes off. The little belt comes off by loosening the bolt in the middle of the tensioner pully and then from up top you either tighten or loosen the bolt to move the tensioner. It's really not a bad job.
