i bought what is supposed to be idler 1. it is idler 2. does idler 2 now supercede idler 1?

i doubt it, though their sizes are almost identical. their is a noticable difference. i really hope they did... because i am about an hour from it being back on the road in trustworthy shape if so... if not... well, another two days added to the 10 mos she's been down.

anyone know? there are extra numbers written after the computer printed part #'s on the box... is the only reason i ask. all the other parts i have bought with this... were superceding ones. so, fingers are crossed. someone know?

the tech & the dealership parts counter, have no idea why the manual & the actual timing belt tooth count don't match. confirmed twice.

manual probably has a mistake, it's not the first mistake i've seen in that manual....

parts and designs change, the manual isnt always updated.
