im in jacksonville, nc. yea i had the ps pump and leak detection pump replaced a while back while it was still under waranty. maybe youre right and they didnt do it right, which i feel is probably possible since there are so few people that REALLY know how to work on these things. nice pic by the way lol looks painful

they could have maybe installed a pulley from a regular ram, or something...????

the measurement from the face of the reservoir to the outside edge of the pulley on mine is 1 1/2-1 5/8" and from the reservoir face to the inside of the pulley is 1/2"

maybe that'll be an indication???

It looks like a 15mm bolt head on mine. 1/2" drive breaker bar with a shallow socket should work just fine, I don't ever struggle, and I'm just a little guy. They also make special tools for $30-40 to aid in belt replacement. Once you get the tool on, push to the passenger side, pulling the pulley upward, releasing the tension on the belt. Hold the pulley in position and guide the belt off any accessible pulley, and slowly release the tensioner pulley back. It will move further back than you started with it, so be prepared for some extra travel as you release tension, and don't just let go unless you want to cuss up a storm and scare the neighborhood children...

If you end up loosening the tensioner's bolt, just tighten it back up something fierce and try again. Double check belt routing before starting motor, make sure the belt is riding on the pulley's correctly and what not, not riding one edge more than the other. When all is said and done, put a little push on the tensioner to "overset" the spring inside there. Kind of when you go to straighten out metal, you have to kind of over bend a little. That's just a little habit I got used to. Other than that, your good to go.

no it was the right pulley but i think probably when the ps pump was replaced it wasnt done or maybe aligned correctly and cause my drive belt to basically shred off part of itself. so maybe thats a good note for everyone.......if you have your ps pump replaced make sure they do the pulley right also. i actually feel lucky that this problem didnt bite me earlier.
