The idler pulley where the A/C unit would go has a little bit of play in it and I would like to replace it. There seems to be way to many different pulley's on the market. Does anyone have a specific part number?
The Belt tensioner has ALOT of play and I need to replace it. Would this be the same as the idler pulley? I keep seeing adjustable and non-adjustable pulleys, i would assume the belt tensioner is the adjustable type.
I have used two Idler Pulleys, albeit on different TJs; a Crown (Part 4792112) and a Dorman (Part 419-602). Both are fine although I thought the Dorman brand was of slightly better quality. That said, both are made in China and I wouldn't be surprised if they were manufactured in the same factory!
Yes the belt tensioner is adjustable, hence it's name.
