Saturn Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is***** you upload the picture to me just so I can confirm that we are talking about the same part?
I goth them. Give me a minute.
Do you have an Autozone close? This should be part number 305240.
What was wrong with the gates part? Were the mounting holes wrong? Also, can you give me the production date and the VIN number from the car?
If you can find out that would be great. The best part for this would be a NAPA #NOE(###) ###-####
This NAPA part is a direct cross reference to your part. #NBH 38112
Yes they are on the NAPA site and any other parts store should be able to cross reference it.
The new style does not need those slots. Did you check out the one from NAPA? All that it needs to do is have the mounting holes line up.
Please let me know. If it has the factory engine in it then these should work as there are not different models of this engine with different tensioners. I have seen plenty of guys try installing these the wrong way causing them to think that the part is wrong.
There really is not any trick other than making sure it is not upside down. Also, with the old one off it is easy to match it to the new one. If the diameter is close and if the bolt holes are the same distance apart it should fit.
Sounds good. If there are further problems please let me know. If possible, if the part is wrong try and describe the difference so that I can see if there is a different motor in the car. Thank you.
If the bolts line up and the tensoner pulley does not line up then there is an issue with the mounting. He needs to make sure he is not trying to mount it upside down.
