Default 99 pathfinder timing belt

Please help,,,. I have trouble setting the the numer one piston on my 99 pathfinder to TDC and to replace the timing belt. How do I know when its at TDC compression stroke and not ignition stroke?

Remove the #1 spark plug, check when the piston is all the way up and the crank pulley mark is align to the timing cover mark.

If you have already removed the cover then try to match the marks on the crank shaft sprocket and camshaft sprocket to the timing belt rear cover. See attached images.

You might need to tighten that particular belt down a little more. I replaced the belts on my 99 Pathfinder, and the alternator belt would squeal every time I would start it.
I tightened it up a little at a time until it quit squealing. You want to be careful and not tighten it too much.
Also as they are new, they will stretch over time, and will need periodic tightening.
