24v serpentine belt tensioner pivot

867 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Luigim

Have discovered the serpentine belt tensioner pivot on my 1995, 24v 3.0 164 is worn.

It seems to have a sleeve which, in theory, could be replaced. Has anyone tried this or found any other fix?

Problem solved!

The serpentine idler pivot sits on two needle bearings. These age, sieze, wear out and allow play.

Have located two new ones from a local supplier and going to fit them shortly.

Bearing details:
Needle bearing, 14mm internal diameter, 20mm external diameter, 14mm long/deep.
Two needed.

Pics attached. Hopefully these will just press out without tooooo much problem. Hopefully.

Hope that helps anyone else with the same issue.
