    Would these pictures change anyone’s opinion? I was able to pull the timing belt cover back a few inches. Haha, I think I’m just looking for someone to tell me not to worry about it and I don’t think I’ll get it.

    I see enough wear from that belt riding on the idler and tensioner pulleys that I would change that belt, and the water pump. That Aisin kit From Amazon is the way to go. I got mine in the mail a few days ago. Going to start tearing into the TB this week...:thumbsup:

    Change the belt, dont gamble with destroying your motor. Its not a huge job and you will have piece of mind knowing it will not fail. You will hate yourself if you don't and it breaks...thats a 6 or 7k mistake you don't want to make.

    This one had 141,000 on it when I replaced it in March. To say I got lucky is a major understatement
