Yes, that was discussed today!  Tensioner bearing is a lot older than the belt too.

Ah, forgot to mention that the bearing had been rotated in the wrong direction to tension the belt.

Gee, I wonder what this blob of silicone is for?  Feckin cowboys.  😡

I know, right?

 

A true PROFESSIONAL would have smoothed that RTV with a wet finger. 🥴:thumbdown:

 

Not to mention, putting the sealant in the correct spot...LOL

Aux pulley came off nice and easy.  Had to take my time with the pump bolts as 3 were very sticky, but eventually eased them out.  I'd completely forgotten the vac pump mounting bracket, aaaaagh.  Here's the pump.  If you hold it to your ear, you can hear Celine DIon singing.  An enormous amount of play in the shaft that looks to have caused a bit of wear on the casing.  Surprised it wasn't noisy.  No surprise, I guess, that I also need to investigate an inop heater.

Love the photos. Great artsmanship with the refurb of the covers.

Amazing turnaround from PNM if you factor in postage.

Dragan, two lovely Esprits, now that is just greedy 😄

It must be great living next door to you @Sparky if you are a car fanatic. It is like Liquorice Allsorts, you never know what type of Lotus will greet your eyes when you look out the window 😃

I'd love to agree, but some people on here will confirm that's not quite the case...
