Reverse threaded bolts on belt pulleys are found on those pulley that spin counter clock wise. The reverse thread, now lefty tighty righty loosey; helps keep the bolt tight and torqued down.

Here'* the actual part that'* broken:


Now, for the part, I was going based off looks.. the damaged part seems to be the same as the 49007 pulley, but if you say it'* 49006, I'm going to reconsider.

The pulley highlighted in blue seems to be okay. It is a metal pulley, doesn't look like there is anything wrong with it, and it still rotates. All that'* left of the red highlighted pulley is the above photo, and what looks to be a seized bearing still attached.

The last thing I want to do is screw up this bolt and have to replace something else. In order to remove the pulley(red), that'* standard I assume.. clockwise to tighten, counter-clockwise to loosen. I don't want to remove the tensioner, I just want to be able to move it or lesson the tension so that I can slide the belt on. In order to do that, I turn it clockwise or counter-clockwise?!?

Again, sorry.. I just want to be sure.

lol no appologies necessary... Conter-clockwise to tighten the bolt (and release tension) but clockwise to remove the bolt

O'riellys should be able to pull up a picture and tell if its metal or not... if not... go look around for it... for my series 1 o'riellys had to order it, AutoZone kept 3 in stock so i went with them... but you WILL have the option... go with the metal, its heavier but lasts longer and doesnt do what this one did

Use the metal pulley instead of the plastic. You're correct about the "red" pulley, it is standard thread. The blue pulley is part of an automatic tensioner assembly; the arm is essentially spring loaded. Use the T50 to move the arm downward (clockwise on the wrench), so that you can slip the belt on. The spring loaded arm will apply constant pressure to the belt so that its never loose.

TL beat me to the punch. Just remember that the idler (pulley that seized) is not reverse threaded.

So, I got everything handled. I'm strapped, so I went w/the same pulley that broke. If it breaks, well.. I'll know how to fix it. It was a 5 minute fix, max. The hardest part was getting the torx socket to squeeze down in there. I washed bonnie, she'* running great. Let'* just hope I don't get any speeding tickets. She'* pretty fast, especially for being a big girl.

Thanks for all the help, guys. I appreciate it.
