I did not care for one of the belt pulley's as compared to the original one I remove. The bearing that was in that pulley was much smaller and I decided to go directly to a subaru dealer and purchase the replacement. That single belt tension (direction) pulley cost over 60 bucks but I'm much happier for the beefier pulley and i feel better that I changed it. Other than that this gate's kit with the other components seemed to hit the mark and are a value cost alternative as opposed to paying the higher costs for rest of those others parts. If gate's starts starts putting a better replacement in that part I would be hands down for a 5 star rating.
I had ordered another brand tensioner kit off Amazon and found the idlers only had single bearings in them when the factory idlers had double bearings. There was no way I was going to install that kit so I returned it and ordered the Gates kit. This kit truly matched the OEM parts. And I don't mean they kinda look the same like the other kit, they are the same. The same NTN markings on the tensioner and same bearings in the pulleys down to the brand name. All the parts in the kit were made in Japan and packaged by Gates Asia. The belt included is also made in Japan and looked like the OEM Subaru.
One of the large double bearing idlers has nearly locked up. Went from not a sound of any kind to horrible metal on metal sounds. Pulled covers and found all idlers but one could be be turned by hand. The failed idler wouldn't turn. The failed idler started to ruin the belt which is now missing some rubber from the smooth side. Looking at the...
