My 2004 Corolla CE was making belt noise so I had the dealer check it out. He said it needed a new belt tensioner and that it would cost $540. I said, WOW, that's not covered under my extended warranty? Then he double checked and said it was covered. Anyway, they replaced the tensioner and then it seemed OK, but less than a week later the belt noise is back. I called the dealer and they said it must need a new belt and that would be $130 and is not covered by warranty.
I would like to get the serpentine belt and do it myself to see if the noise will go away. Can someone recommend a good highquality replacement belt. Part number would be great if you have that. And some step-by-step instructions on how to do it. I looked at the belt tensioner after they put it on and i don't see right away any spot to put a wrench on it to lossen it up.
