Thank you guys for infos....:)
Btw....do you know when it should be changed and if you change it do you have to take the whole kit or just the belt?

Thank you again :)

ummm the maintenance schedule can be found in your owners manual...if you have one it'll tell ya....and you should change the tensioner at the same time to avoid future headaches.

i'm thinking it might be every....100k miles? maybe not...

Unfortunetly, I don't have an owner manual...I had to download it from the net. :D
So....100k miles should be...I mean....it could be needed earlier or that's the normal maintenance?

Thanks again guys for your help,
