Does the hydraulic tensioner cause a noise too? All belts are in great condition so i'm good there.
By the way would I be taking a huge risk going on a 300mi road trip (approx. 600 roundtrip) with bad pulleys and whatnot? Thats probably a stupid question.
Sorry for all the questions, i'm learning soo much from reading on this forum
Anyway thanks in advance.
Once you follow the advice above and grab some replacement pulleys, do you have a Torx set? i have mechanical tensioners, and they require a T50 to remove the bolt holding the pulley to the tensioner.
