Welcome to Justanswer, My name isXXXXX am here to help.
Sounds like the idiler pulley and the belt tensioner very common to fail in 10 year periods
This should have been done when the belt was replaced
Some places dont
But its recommend at around 100k
actually, the serp belt was replaced almost two years ago. don't know why they wouldn't have replaced the others at that time. I wonder if they would honor their work by making those replacements now. I do recall that they said they couldn't make that particular repair, either didn't have the tools/parts or maybe beyond their expertise. However, it's Firestone, and they directed me to go to a transmission shop.
wow seems interesting choice of shops to send you
They wont honor anything they are pretty bad at that
Just have any independant shop replace the idiler pulley and tensioner
Common thing should be changed every 100k

well, they knew the guy at the transmission shop. overall I've had good experiences with my repairs at Firestone. Have taken my car to them for four years, no problems. ok, looks like I'll have to find a local shop. just a few more questions: about how much is this repair, and is it urgent?
You should do it soon it can seize cause belt to slip and come off which is not cool
1 hour labor for both they price the tensioner at 176.99 thats mopar price
You can go with napa parts with a independant shop
mopar price? what is that?
"on par" price?
Sorry toyota price
The idiler pulley will run about 37 bucks
Your very Welcome. Have a great holiday glad to help
