Post A/C idler tensioner pullies
hey guys what's up this past weekend I set out to change those annoying birds under my hood....the tensioner replace great but the idler killed me with that stinking t50. I had a half inch breaker bar on it but I all I did was break off one of the star tips could not break loose. I did not try heating it up yet. I was debating welding the bit to the bolt to break but wanted to see what you guys suggested first

Cover it with PB blaster and let it sit over night. See if you can get a hand impact driver and bits that fit at sears or somewhere. Sometime a little hammer help goes a long way. Be careful heating it, there is LOTS of aluminum there. I personally would not.

You can use heat sparingly if you want, my personal preference is not to use a torch on Aluminum at all. Normally vibration is just as effective

Also make sure if it doesn't come completely loose you work it back and forth, if you keep going in one direction the odds of breaking something go up astronomically
