Belt Squealing

I took mine into the dealership last week for the serpentine belt squealing. The Service Mgr. @ Bankston Dodge in Irving,TX told me that the tensioner pulley was bad and they ordered a new one. Then 2days later they said that the new one was a completely different size than the one that was on the truck and the mounting hardware was different and they needed to order a bolt to mount it. 2 more days later they said that the harmonic balancer was bad and that the original tensioner pulley was fine and they had to order a new harmonic balancer. Finally, I picked it up yesterday and was told that the Harmonic balancer had backed off some and had caused the belt to be off-line from the other pulley's and so they just retightened it and put a new belt on. The truck has 10k miles on it and I have never heard of this happening to anyone else. Please let me know what your thoughts are and if I should be worried about any other kind of damage from the harmonic balancer being off track. Thanks for any input. Jay.

front seal

Have them check the front seal too. If the balancer work it's way out it could have damaged the oil seal. ML

It has happened to some Vipers so it could happen on our trucks.

**** happens, I was talking to Sean @ Roe when they were setting up there SRT-10 Ram for the supercharger they found the pulley on the crank was missing bolts and the ones that remained were finger tight.!!! So while we look and admire or trucks we should also check around.

Make sure it's the belt. I have an upper idler pulley bearing goe bad and it sounded similar to a belt slipping. Changed the pulley and all is fine!
