Did the Ford tech add the missing pulley or just replace the existing one? Read the last few posts (and watch the video in my last post) for what has been generally accepted to be the long term solution to this problem, if you haven't already.

What a great video. I am sure it was a new idler and belt. I just sent clip to my ASM at the dealer. Thank you for the guidance!

What quality of belt are they using? I replaced ours with a high quality belt.

I'm curious what the dealer says about this.

Adding the missing idler is confirmed by many owners as a long-term fix.
