Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Just a follow up here. I ordered the older part number Anders gave above (thank you anders!) from eeuroparts, (thank you eeuroparts) and yes it was the alternator bracket that happens to hold that idler pulley, so yes, right part.

As anders said in response to my "is it difficult" question: "it depends. if you use the right tools, to extract the bolts, then it's not bad. If you take short cuts or use ill fitting tools, you'll turn a medium job into a hell hole".

That is right. Anyone finding this post in the future please take heed. We did and it worked out well for us. Several online references to it being a 8MM hex wrench. The bolts I had looked already "worked" once or twice...(i have had my alternator replaced in the cars lifetime for example).

We decided to go with the equivalen Torx size because it gripped better... we were careful about this decision before putting any torque on these bolts. the situation is that you have very little clearance so a long handled ratchet wrench with Heavy Duty bit on it will let you get to them. I am sorry, i can't remember what the torx size we (carefully) used... i wanna say T25? anyway, apparently 8MM hex is correct, but with slightly marfed bolts, the Torx was our friend. We went slow, and nothing stripped. Hooray. Back on the road.

Thanks Vignner,Saabu,Jeremy, and Anders!
