idler pulley

Hello, I plan on throwing on a new belt on the 4.0l and was curious how hard is it to replace the idler pulley why I'm in there? Do I have to remove much to get to it? is it a one bolt deal? Any help would be greatly appreciated

It is just one 15mm bolt. Take you about an extra 3 minutes while changing the belt
In a ZUK now....

Like stated above, it takes about 3 minutes to replace, one bolt... Piece of cake.
Might as well do it when your doing the belt , its cheap enough and easy enough to put in with your preventive maintenance.

Does it click, squeel or have some play in it that worries you?
