Hey everyone I have a 2003 Santa Fe 2.4. Couple days ago my idler tensioner pulley or whatever its called seized up and took the belt out with it. I got a pulley that resembles it from Autozone mind you that it was the only parts store that had one in stock even Hyundai didnt have the part. The only difference is the hole size for the bolt is about 1/4 inch bigger then the stock pulley. Is there any chance I can get a spacer and make up for the difference? Any input would be appreciated and also if anyone knows the actual part name and part number and can provide it that would be helpful. Thanks

It's Saturday morning. Call the local salvage yards. At least it's cheap, there, and it will get you going until you can get the correct one that fits. If you find out the one you bought at Advance is not correct, they will refund your money. Actually, they will refund your money regardless if it's correct or not. With some exceptions (electrical parts may have restocking fees).

If it works, patent it, submit it to pulley manufacturers, and retire.

Look up under the hood or around the radiator area. Sometimes manufacturers will have a sticker on there that shows it. Or search it on
Google. I promise you, there's an image posted somewhere.

Google did the trick with the image. Went to home depot bought a coupler and cut it with a 1/2 inch lip because the pulley was wider and was scraping along the engine. Took it for a test drive and so far so good. Will drive for a week and update. Thanks
