hey can someone tell me if we have to change the idler pulley, or the belt tensioner. wondering if they need change. i'm guessing thats where the noise is coming from. How do you loosen the tensioner to change the belt???/

The belt tensioner pulley seems to be good for 60-90k. It will start squealing & get progressively noisy; be sure to replace it before it breaks: $$$$.

A more mechanically inclined person will have to answer you on loosening, you may want to do a search.
