Since the SW1 was squeaking during idle, I needed to replace the idler pulley. I figured that while I was replacing the idler pulley, I might as well replace the serpentine belt – just practicing PREVENTATIVE maintenance :)

I thought it would be a 30 minute job, …but it turned out to be 2.5 hours :S

Oh well. :D

Replacement parts Old idler versus new idler Old idler versus new idler Old idler is off New serpentine belt versus old belt Old serpentine belt, with cracks New serpentine belt with grips New serpentine belt, and new idler pullet installed!
