This is a direct replacement for the IDLER PULLEY/WHEEL, not the TENSIONER PULLEY for the 5.9 Dodge Durango 5.7 liter. Easy to replace on the Durange. The bearing squeal is gone. Over 200k miles on the original. I hope this last just as long.

Didn't Work

Had to return this pulley. The bushing that goes through the bearing and holds it to the block rubbed on pulley. Bought new one from competitor with no problems there.

Comments about CARQUEST by Dayco Idler Pulley:

This replaced my existing 1999 Dodge Dakota pulley just fine. It doesn't seem like it will last 100k miles like the original, but it seems like a good replacement for the price.

          A:

          The Idler/Tensioner Pulley from Dayco does not fit for 5.7 Hemi Engines.These specially formulated glass-filled polymer or steel-bodied pulleys have smoother surfaces and tighter dimensional tolerances for less vibration and longer belt life.

      • Q:

        why is this one not ribbed to fit in the grooves of the belt, what is to stop the belt from slipping right off the side. Only asking because im having a problem with pieces of the belt fraying away and then now the belt popped off so if it can eventually pop off a ribbed pulley whats to stop it from sliding right off this one?

          A:

          The tensioner doesn't need to be ribbed dew to the pressure it puts on the belt. If it is install and or mounted right it wont cause any issues with your belt.

        • A:

          It pushes against the flat side of the belt.
