Boxster Project 17: Idler Pulley Replacement

Anyone got any questions on Project 17 - Idler Pulley Replacement for your 986 Boxster, 987 Boxster, Cayman, Carrera 996, or Carrera 997?

Here's a back link to the original article: Pelican Technical Article: 17-ENGINE-Idler_Pullies

I was just informed by a reader of my book that Project #17 is somewhat unclear with respect to the torque values used to tighten the idler pulleys. I just added this information to the corrections page on http://www.101projects.com/Boxster/corrections.htm :

Page 81, "Replacing Belt Tensioners", the torque values listed for tightening the pulleys require additional clarity. Tighten the pulleys to the following values:

Upper Pulley:
- 34 ft-lb (46 Nm) for the upper bolt if it's an M10x145 (8.8) bolt
- 48 ft-lb (65 Nm) if it's an M10x145 (10.9)

Lower Pulley:
- The lower pulley is tightened to 17 ft-lb (23 Nm) only

I had my local dealership deal with a squeek and they never quite fixed it.

It all started when they did my belt for my 60/70k service for my newly purchased vehicle.

It ended up being $1k more as they kept saying all of my idlers were the cause(one at a time)

The squeek is still there, but only after the car has warmed up, and after reading your 101 and looking at the pictures there and on the website the pully looks like it isn't right. The belt hangs over a tad bit and it makes me feel they used the wrong part or forgot the spacer.

Does this picture look right to you?
