Word to the wise. My failed attempt at repairing my 03 XS idler pulley bolt, which was very corroded, happened because I didn’t remove the entire bracket first.
I tried to un screw the long bolt which caused the adjuster to snap. It’s plastic. Now I’m waiting for parts. The old parts were updated but I wonder if I can re use the bracket??
Just add the pulley, adjuster and pulley bolt.
I’ll compare parts. All Subaru parts vendors seem to be swamped with orders right now. I’m going to try a local dealership here.
