Timing belt tensioner bearing.

Post by Peeler » Wed Jun 08, 2016 10:14 am

Does anyone know what bearing goes in the timing belt tensioner or if you have to buy the whole assembly.
I think they should be replaced, but would like to have them in advance before tearing into them.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
