    Replaced belt at 129000, was noisy when cold better after warmed up. Belt had many cracks on underside. New belt started to shred after 20 miles. Tensioner did not work right after excersizing it, spring pushed pulley outward maybe 1/8". Replaced tensioner and belt, all good now. Went with Gates tensioner, seemed sturdier than OEM.
