Hi Guys,

First of all my car is ford focus 2001 spi.

I'm planning to replace my coolant tube but when I look at it I was thinking which is the better way to do it.

One bolt is in the oil pan which is so easy to remove but the other bolt is in between idler pulley and alternator which is no clearance to remove it.

Should I remove the bolt of idler pulley (of course I need to remove the serpentine belt first and also drain the coolant) for me to have a space to remove the bolt in between idler pulley and alternator? if so If anyone knows the torque of the idler pulley after I replace the coolant tube?

If someone has an easy way to do it and any tips would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You've picked the one part (idler pulley) which doesn't seem to have a published torque spec.

Sorry, can't help you further. Your plan of attack seems reasonable. I assume you're replacing the coolant tube because of a leak caused by corrosion?
