Next in line is a smooth idler, lower and just above/between the crank and compressor. It faces straight into the mount on the ledge/upper baywall, with no clearance to get to it.
Even if if I just pull the hunk of rubber out of the top, I think the cast iron bracket, still won't let me get a torx bit into the pulley.
The bracket is the one with the lower bolt/sleeve which has to be removed to change the reg accessory belt. It also has an arm that heads under the coils/ICM. Then another arm on it goes back behind the power steering pump.
I wanted to check before I remove all of that. It has the look of one of those things I do all of the the work, then you or Bill goes "Nah, you didn't have to do that. You just release the mount, and one on the front cradle, jack the engine a 1/2 inch, and you're good to get to the pulley".. (something easy like that)
So I wanted to check.
