Hey Guys,, ok, No problem getting the belt off my 2.7,,
2.7 belt is a cake walk
but being as my tensioner has 155Kilometres on it,, I need to know if the pulley is removable
The pulley can be removed, but it is not a seperate service part
and is the bearing regreasable without haveing to buy a whole new assembly,,
I think the bearing on the tension arm has a single row ball bearing, have not looked at 1 in while to know.. there is no ready lube point
and theres allso an idler pulley there,, is that regreasable,,
Pretty sure on the idler pulley you can carefully "pop" the shield out (dont bend/mangle it), and use a dab of good quality grease (I prefer MOBIL-1 synthetic) and pack some into the ball/race area, then re-install shield to the races.. being full of grease will make slight difficult to put shield back, as it'll displace some of the lube to fit back in. Should be able to do same for the tension arm pulley, you'll have to look at it.
Or can just new bearings be put in??
Better off buying new parts, I know we keep the idler on hand, not sure about the tensior assembly.. FYI, same part number available at Hyundai and Kia, both use same engine in model line up
Just didnt want to commit to taking it apart without having new parts handy if this is not fixable?
Broke ? Sounds as if you was changing belt as a routine maintnance thing.. though it best to just do timing belt and drive belt at same time, gots to put a belt back on when going together, so just use new belt
Thanks in advance Awg
