I recommend 60-90K Cost depends on the dealerships labor but usually when your doing a timing belt, radiator hoses and fan belts are removed and should be replaced while your in there. Its about 3hrs, more if other things need to be replaced while in there. So you looking at $300+ for labor only

Local Nissan dealer just quoted me $950 to replace timing belt and water pump.

Checked with a local garage and got a quote of $390.

Make sure you get quotes from more than one source!

My nissan xterra 2002 has noise coming from one of the belts how can i tighting the water pump belt?

Most likely the noise you are hearing is because the belt is older and has dried out. Replace the belt with a new flexible belt and your noise will probably subside. I always replace the tensioner when I replace the belt so that it doesn't go bad later. Here is a link to a great video that a person posted:

2002 nissan xterra timing belt would that effect the internal engine damage?

Timing belts should be changed every 60,000. Different car makes state different mileage but as a whole 60,000 miles and you should replace the timing belt.

The belt keeps the crankshaft and camshaft in time with one another. And is very important. If you dont change them when they need changing. It can cause extreme engine damage so yes it can effect the internal engine damage.

For a 2001 nissan xterra when should the timing belt be replaced

On a 3.3L engine V-6, Nissan recommends replacement every 105,000 miles, note that this is an interference engine, that piston to valve damage will happen in the event of a timing belt failure.

Xterra with 2.4L and 4.0L have timing chain only, no timing belt.

2002 nissan xterra l/f seat belt locked up

Try spraying penetrating lubricant or graphite into it, wiggle and try. Spray inside and press the button and spray between the button and the housing. If this dosen't work you can try looking into the seat belt with a flash light and see if you can see anything moving compare with a belt that works properly. If not successful you will have to replace the seat belt assembly as they cannot be taken apart as they are a safety item and are replaced as an assembly.
