Customer Question
Trying to replace idler...

Trying to replace idler pulley on my 2005 corolla but the pulley has no nut to remove the pulley. It has cover over it and I am unable to remove it. What now!

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?

303,000. 1.8

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Corolla yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes and I have the alternator and water pump off but wanted to replace pulley.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
