Hey guys. My wifeís 2007 Cooper S Convertible (R52) has a bad squeal I. The belt area. Since Iíve already replaced the harmonic balancer and the tensioner pulley assembly, Iím thinking itís the idler pulley thatís squealing.
My question is... is the an aftermarket idler pulley that offers better service than an OEM replacement. The reason I ask - I upgraded the harmonic balancer on this car with the gel-filled one piece balancer, rather than that cheesy two-piece mess that Mini put on these cars.
Any help/ advice would be greatly appreciated.
