I've reinstalled my old tensioner.

I can't find a new one!!!

What to do?

can you take the pulley off the bracket? I don't remember how that assembles. Pics would probably help here. Unfortunately I don't have my original to refer to.

If the pulley can be removed, it should be an easy thing to find a suitable replacement wheel. Or if the bearing can be pressed out of the pulley that would work too, but pretty sure my original was a plastic idler over-molded on the bearing so it can't be replaced.

Is this true? Does it really exist? Called and it forwards to voicemail (asking for VIN and part). Let a message and emailed using the site's form.

No response.

Why does BMW drive all parts requests using VIN? (I know, I know.)

Hopefully they will get back to me. (Not holding my breath.)
