I'm at 60K miles. I've already read several helpful posts on replacing serpantine belt in my '09 NF w/ 2.4L engine. An online parts shop advised me that not only the belt needs to be replaced but the following also (OEM part numbers follow commas):
- pulley idler, 25287-25010
- pulley idler, 25287-25110
- pulley tensioner, 25282-2G000

The dealer only recommends belt replacement as far as I know. Is it common to replace more than just belt as I described above at 60K miles?

Thank you all in advance!

I always replaced my water pump whenever doing the belt R&R on our other FWD vehicles. Didn't want to go back in there 5,000 miles later to replace a $20-30 leaking water pump. It was my pre-emptive strike against doing double work.

I had just the belt replaced on my 2009 4 cyl. at 68,000. Cost was about $180. I asked them to save the old belt for me; it appeared to be in very good condition.

The OP is talking about a serpentine belt, not a timing belt that drives the water pump. NF Sonatas don't have timing belts.

Your recommendation would be a good idea when referring to a timing belt.

You're absolutely correct! Thanks for catching that. I was off in another hemisphere, I guess. Brain freeze. Too cold to think! ROF

I'm guessing that $180 was for belt and labor -- not for replacement of tensioner, etc?

As far as I know, 2.4L come with a timing chain which is not a maintenance part. Right?

Under ordinary circumstances you should replace the belt only, bando belt is a good brand. Total price away from dealer should be around $150

We just replace the drive belt with our 60/120/180 interval services

I think we only charge 1/2hr ($46) + cost of belt (have to check what we sell belt for),, but anything over $100,,, you likely getting your wallet flushed

Belts run anywhere from 23-40 bucks. Depending on source. I have replaced a couple of belts on other vehicles. Not that much labor unless I'm missing something somewhere.

It sounds like most of the dealers/shops only replace the belt at 60K. I've already bought it but will hold off on getting the rest. Will replace only if needed. (Hopefully it WON'T be needed!) Thank you all again!
