Has anyone had to replace the idler pulley and tensioner pulleys on a j18a?
The bearings are noisy in mine and i want to know if anyone has done it and can it be done with the engine in the engine bay or do i have to pull the engine to get access??
Any help is appreciated.

it was a bit of a bi**h putting the new belt on my gtx when i rebuilt the j20 in it.. i put it on when the gearbox mount wasn't put on yet so i could tilt the engine to the side to get access.. i also didn't have the side engine mount done up too.

Yeah thought i might have to do something like that. Fitting the belt has never been a drama. but trying to get a spanner between the body and the engine has been a real pain. Both the idler pulley and tensioner pulley need to be replaced as the bearings sound like they are cement truck full of gravel..
Looks like i have some fun work ahead.
