you have to support the engine with a jack and board, remove torque axis mount. Yes, it'* a pain, but easily doable.

look for hidden bolt behind ps pump pully (access it through the pulley holes)

All this for a pulley or the bracket, since the pulley is the one making noise...?

do you happen to know what is the name of it. Cause there are other idler pulleys.. like the drive belt... but this one is connected with the supercharge belt/.

You need to tell us if it'* #3 or #8. And is it just the idler on the tensioner, or the tensioner itself? 'read' the tension marks.

could be 9 also

easiest to pull off the belt and spin all 3. put a socket on the tension idler and rotate. is the assembly smooth or jerky/squeeky?
