Other than taking your car to the local garage, there are a number of useful guides that you can find floating around on the Internet. Providing you have adequate ability in the technological functioning of a car, you could combine these guides with the manual of your 2005 Nissan Titan to change the belt.

Here is a brief idea of what changing the belt entails:
  • Proceed at your own risk
The serpentine belts on cars are very tightly sprung and the tightness could be even more depending on the make of your car. If you were to slip or make a mistake during this process, you could be very serious injured as well as causing damage to the surrounding area and the car.
  • Release the belt tension
In most cases, you will be able to use a tool that has been specifically designed for losing the tension in the serpentine belt. This is a challenging process and will require you to ensure that it does not come into contact with any other component before contacting the tensioner stop. Any alternate contact could result in the tool jamming and increasing the possibility of the tool slipping and causing potentially severe personal injury.
  • Remove the belt
As soon as you have correctly removed all the tension on the belt, you can take it off. It will be attached to pulleys and you should begin by extracting it from the pulley that is easiest to reach. In most cases, this process involves pulling the belt away from each individual pulley, but in some cases you may need to remove other components first. This is where you should consult your car's manual.
  • Examine the surrounding components for damage
Take a look at the fans, tensioner units and the pulleys for any damage or irregularities before you proceed.
  • Attach the new belt
Reinstall the new belt in the reverse order that you removed it. Set all the ribs of the belt into the correct pulleys and make sure the rest of the belt is in the right place and start the engine. You can use the position scale on the tensioner to ensure that the belt is in the right place.
