Hi all,

Destroyed the bearings in the pulley which hangs off the serpentine belt tensioner. It appears the pulley does not come off - the tensioner is a whole assembly.

Repco are telling me the instructions say to use existing bracket - but the pulley doesnt come off!!!!!!

Anyone got any advice/suggestions/knowledge about the tensioner? Is it similar to the 6cyl one?

Not THAT urgent but i need to get one today over the phone, lol

Cheers

Martin

Lol, i work in Pirie street which is sort of the centre of the CBD in Adelaide (dont laugh :wink: ). Not too many workshops around here, kinda like looking for a mechanic on george street in Sydney - i imagine you have a similar area in Perth.

It's all good tho. Boys at ford spare parts are delivering to reception desk

Ford surprise you sometimes don't they!! lol

Senario - Water Pump for me EF

Quote from Coventrys $39.00 inc pully (but not fitted)

Quote from ford, "Oh we have a special on those $120 inc pully (but not fitted)"

Me, "Really, Coventrys are doing them for $39

Ford "hang on let me check that price, oh my mistake, yes I can match that and press the pully onto the pump for free for you"

Me "Wow, be there in 5 minutes" lol
