I felt the same way. It's been a good belt so far and still quiet with our rainy weather and trips up into -25c snow country.

Just wanted to say thanks to those that contributed to this thread. I just replaced the belt in 30 mins. The info here is spot on. The toughest part was to get the belt lined up with each pulley. But since I knew that going in, I was patient. I used an OEM belt from nissan.

Glad it worked out! Interesting to see how others had the supercharger sound but were able to live with it. In my book more sound, no matter how cool, is not quieter. It drove me nuts to the point of returning it.

Bookmark the thread as you will replace the belt again in 30-40k

1 hr job including clean up

I read this thread two weeks before doing the job and forgot a crucial step, locking the tensioner!! Once I found that it only took 5 mins to get the new GY Gatorback 4070970 on. Replaced the belt because it was squeaking when it got wet. Just bought it in Oct and it was squeaking at the dealer so I had them replace it before I took it. They used an OE belt and it started squeaking 3 weeks after. That's what drove me to find this site and I am glad I did. Got my belt from Summit Racing Equipment for $37.

The tensioners aren't great quality and will cause similar symptoms. If your belt was changed and you heard noise three weeks later, you should check the tensioner too.

I bought the Goodyear belt tensioner the same time as the Gatorback and have been very happy with it.

Thanks for all the info. I just ordered the Gatorback 4070971 from Amazon for $20. It even showed it as compatible with the 05 QX. Hopefully this takes care of my squeal or else I'll need to do the tensioner as well.

Just finished mine too!! I had the squeak for the last couple of days and wd40 would instantly stop it so I figured must have been the belt.
Excellent help/diagram provided.

Took me about 40 mins (prob 10 mins checking and rechecking........)


Thanks everyone

Gates belt and tensioner worked out really good for me. Only paid 7.50 for belt and 21 for tensioner (employee discount) about 9, 000 miles ago. Looking forward on replacing pcv valve.
